Lost Your Training Budget?

Training may be the last thing on your mind right now, but the dust will settle and our lives will return to some form of normalcy at some point. 

When it does you may find resources and funding limited. It’s likely, too, that some of your employees will have some downtime. There are a variety of options when you need training even if you don’t have a budget. 

A shortlist is provided below with links on more information, but if you have questions don’t hesitate to reach out to New Horizons Columbus directly.


Software Assurance Training Vouchers (SATV)

Microsoft may be sun-setting this program, but you probably still have some available. Enterprise agreements from Microsoft often come with these vouchers and you may not even know you have them. Check with your IT manager or your Microsoft representative. 

Cisco Learning Credits (CLC)

Cisco offer credits for training for purchasing their products. Most companies save them for events like Cisco Live and use the rest for training. We foresee minimal travel this Spring/Summer, so put those credits to good use and train your staff. 

VMWare Learning Credits (VLC)

VMware provides credits for using and buying their technology. We would be happy to apply them to a training package and help offset expenses. 

Citrix Training Passes (CTP)

Citrix doesn’t provide a large number of passes to clients so they often go noticed. If you use Citrix technology, you probably have them. 


No better time than now to check out these free training options and get those employees’ professional development plans kicked into high gear.
