5 Ways Global Knowledge’s New Website Makes Getting Training Easier

Getting training is one of the easiest ways to boost your salary or improve business operations. But finding a course that fits into your schedule or at the price you need isn’t so cut and dried. It can be even tougher to find learning tools, news and trends without combing through a bunch of sites.

At Global Knowledge, we’ve completely revamped our website with responsive technology, enhanced functionality and new features designed to remove the stress from the training process — from search to knowledge prep to checkout. The new site offers a simpler, more convenient way to filter through the topics you’re interested in, find learning resources and complete your purchase. And, you can do it all in minutes. new-website-showcase

1. Mobile-Friendly Design

The new website is designed to automatically configure content for the best view based on your screen size, whether you’re on a smartphone, tablet, laptop or other device. You’ll navigate and read training information comfortably and easily without having to zoom in or adjust your settings. This makes reading our white papers and special reports a cinch no matter where you are.

2. Improved Search

You’ve always been able to search our course catalog by top brands like IBM, Cisco and Microsoft or by training topic areas such as project management and cybersecurity. But now, you can drill down your results even further with robust subtopic and brand browsing to find targeted training. You can get super specific and delve into areas that span everything from programming languages and the NIST Cybersecurity Framework to predictive analytics and optical and fiber cable training.

And, if you already have the course code, class name, keyword or topic area you interested in, you can always enter it into our redesigned search bar. Not having to wade through a sea of possible matches is a real bonus when you consider that Global Knowledge offers more than 4,000 courses and loads of training resources.

3. Simplified Scheduling

New filters and sorting options help you find professional development that fits your schedule within seconds with the click of a few boxes. Find your course and then select how and where you want to train. With the new site, you can sort your potential courses by:

Not sure what training you need? Or just want to learn about the services and courses we have available? Start with the Global Knowledge homepage and hover over the Training, Solutions, Resources and Company tabs for a quick overview of everything from courses and services to logistics, news, resources and tools.

When you want to learn more about a class, the new course pages offer an at-a-glance view of basic course information, pricing and delivery options in a grid format for easy comparison.

Other features we’ve added to the site include:

  • Brand- and topic-specific pages that pair training options with helpful resources like certification road maps, white papers and webinars for a one-stop shopping experience.
  • Additional professional development solutions specifically for individuals, teams and organizations.
  • Solutions based on your industry including healthcare, finance, government, technology and more.*
  • Planning and logistics information with all the need-to-know information about training with Global Knowledge.

5. Simplified Shopping Cart

Buying a course for you or your team is easier than ever with three simple steps: just confirm the items in your cart, complete basic student information and enter payment. With the new cart and checkout features, you can complete a transaction online from beginning to end in less time than it takes to drink a cup of coffee:

  • Apply vendor vouchers or credits.
  • Select and upload purchase orders if that’s your preferred method of payment.
  • Sign in or create a user account before you shop to auto-populate your shipping address for student registration.
  • Easily select, adjust and register the number of students who need training.
