New Horizons

May 21 - Jun 03, 2001

New Horizons Computer Learning Center Karachi is a franchisee of New Horizons Computer Learning Centers Inc (the world's largest computer training network). We train 2.5 million people globally at our 250 training centers in over 50 countries and the number keeps growing as we strive to maintain our quality and standards.

Our premises in Karachi are at 505, Park Avenue Shahrah e Faisal; covers a total area of 5500 Sq. ft with four air-conditioned classrooms with a combined PC capacity of 70. With our growth, we have started work on our center in Clifton, which will be up and running by June 2001. Our breakout area set outside the classrooms is where students enjoy tea and coffee during breaks.

Classrooms and Courses: All classrooms are networked for easy information access during sessions and since New Horizons believes completely in the importance of hands-on training, during classes students are assigned one PC per person. New Horizons was the first to offer CIW in Pakistan and we pioneered training on MCSE 2000 and SUN Microsystems Java Programming for Non-Programmers (pre-requisite for Sun Certified Java Programmer) and we remain committed to offering newer and better courses based on the latest technology. Our recently launched Diploma programs are proof enough.

Authorized Training Center (ATC): New Horizons is affiliated with recognized vendors namely, Microsoft as an Microsoft Certified Solution Provider, CIW's Authorized Training Provider and we are a CompTIA Authorized Training Provider. The main purpose of getting authorized to be able to provide proper structured training as per the vendors' course outlines, pre-requisites and time duration.

Being authorized by a software publisher gives a variety of benefits, we receive course material directly from the publisher and beta versions of any software prior to its release so that we keep up with the latest technology; and we have to follow their strict guidelines to ensure that quality education is being delivered. Because the vendors themselves have evaluated us, you know you can trust their recommendation.

Instructors: We employ full time Instructors, so that we can control the quality and consistency of instruction. Instructors teach 80%of the time with 20% of the time used in ongoing training to keep their teaching skills sharp. We hire people with strong presentations skills as well as technical training. Each Instructor must pass out Train the Trainer program and we also focus on maintaining a faculty that itself is certified in the courses they teach.

Counseling: The most important part before signing up for any course is confidence in your choice of subject. Our Counselors (Account Executives) go through an Intensive two-week session of training before they are allowed to assist any customer, this covers everything from product- knowledge to drafting a proper helpful career chart so that the student gets the proper solution even if it means telling him not to train for a course that may not be productive for him.
