SCHAUMBURG, IL--(Marketwire - Mar 5, 2013) - TrainSignal, a global leader in IT training, announces today the launch of a new subscription-based, unlimited-access online training platform that delivers comprehensive IT training at all levels.

With its new platform, TrainSignal will play an essential role in educating a workforce for the IT jobs of today.

"We've been providing students and professionals around the world with high-quality IT training courses for more than a decade," said Scott Skinger, CEO and Founder of TrainSignal. "Today we are putting IT pros and novices in complete control of their career destinies with on-demand access to the material they need to succeed on the job."

According to CompTIA's IT Industry Outlook 2013, IT jobs are expected to grow by 22 percent through 2020. Hiring managers are looking for cloud-savvy, cross-dimensional IT professionals that can manage the demands of a changing market. As the business landscape evolves and organizations invest heavily in cloud computing, enterprise technology and big data, TrainSignal's new platform gives IT professionals the resources and skills they need to succeed.

In an industry where classroom courses and seminars start at $500 and range into the thousands, TrainSignal delivers students unlimited access to training material at a relatively low flat-rate fee. Whether on-the-job or mid-commute, TrainSignal students can access the information they need, when they need it, on or offline.

From the seasoned IT expert to the first-time student, TrainSignal's new platform builds upon its highly regarded philosophy of scenario-based learning with several core features including:

  • Complete access to over one hundred of the top IT training courses including Microsoft, VMware, Cisco, Citrix and CompTIA training courses;

  • Industry leading and award winning instructors with expertise as Microsoft MVPs, VMware vExperts, Citrix CTPs, certified experts in Cisco and CompTIA and more;

  • Guaranteed up-to-date training material that reflects the latest trends and certifications;

  • Course tracking and an offline video player so users can keep learning with or without a reliable Internet connection;

  • Access to practice exams for some of the most popular IT certification exams.

In advance of the launch of its new platform, TrainSignal conducted a nationwide survey of over 2,000 IT professionals revealing a critical demand for accessible training -- with 69 percent of respondents stating that they reference training material on-the-job at least once a month. Along with this demand, 68 percent prefer online or video training courses over traditional classroom or textbook methods. Training is essential for a successful career in IT, with 95 percent of respondents claiming that ongoing IT training is a must for career advancement.

With over $30 million in sales shipping to 147 countries to date, TrainSignal is transforming its business model to fill a gap in IT education.
