Wednesday, 6 June 2018 – Knowit has partnered with Planit to bring world leading eLearning courses to the Nordics. These courses will span testing and agile software development, including core industry certifications from ISTQB, ASTQB and iSQI.
In addition to being one of the largest providers of quality assurance solutions, Planit is a global leader in testing and agile training, having trained in excess of 30,000 QA professionals. Planit produces high-quality online self-study courses that provide maximum flexibility, allowing students to learn at their own speed from the convenience of their desk or on-the-go.
Knowit sees online courses as a highly complementary offering to its classroom ones on the same topics. Knowit has trained well over 10,000 IT professionals to date. Not everyone is able to accommodate training at a schedule decided by their training provider, so many people want the freedom to learn when they have time for it, in small bits or over a long stretch. Furthermore, companies cannot always afford to take the whole team away from daily work, and would rather spread the learning out over a longer period of time.
Commenting on the partnership, Kari Kakkonen, Director of Quality and Competences at Knowit, said, "We needed a partner whose online courses are easy-to-use, high-quality and encourage continuous learning. That is what Planit offers.”
“We have a strong relationship with Planit and both see upskilling as an essential on-going responsibility of anyone working within a development team. It allows them to keep on top of ever-changing technologies and best practices, greatly benefiting students in developing their careers and employers in delivering high quality of software,” said Kari. “We hear positive stories about our training every day, and are happy to provide classroom and eLearning courses that can provide such benefit to our customers.”
“At Planit, we’re known for quality. Knowit’s reputation in the Nordic region makes them a great match for Planit as our local training partner. We look forward to working closely with Knowit to share our knowledge with that part of globe ” says James Pennefather, Director of Training at Planit Testing.
