Join New Horizons in Celebrating 30 Years
This year marks New Horizons' 30th Anniversary—and with 300 centers in 70 countries, we're proud of how far we've come since opening our doors in 1982! Our innovative, award-winning learning methods such as Online LIVE® and Mentored Learning® have revolutionized the way 30 million students learn, retain and apply new knowledge.
To put 30 years into perspective:
- We were performing Microsoft training several years before Microsoft even introduced Windows
- We were here just as the term "Internet" was first used
- We were around before Cisco Systems, Inc. and Dell Computer Corp. were even founded
- We were here before most people even knew what IT was

Leading by Innovation in Learning
Our real-time cloud-based lab solution allows students to access their labs anytime and anywhere. Furthermore, our innovative, award-winning learning methods such as Online LIVE® and Mentored Learning® have revolutionized the way students learn, retain and apply new knowledge.
Online LIVE® removes geographical boundaries from learning by bringing students and instructors together synchronously in a virtual live classroom. This innovative program provides students with all of the benefits of being in a dynamic interactive learning environment—while enabling students to study from work, home or a New Horizons center.
Mentored Learning® is a Microsoft Innovation Award–winning training methodology that allows students to learn at their own pace with a certified instructor. With Mentored Learning, students choose when they want to study by leveraging flexible learning schedules that free them from being constrained by the traditional 9–5 multiday class schedule.
These various approaches empower students with unprecedented flexibility to tailor their learning schedules and locations by deciding when, where and how they want to learn.
New Horizons has trained employees at all 100 companies listed in Fortune magazine’s ranking of America’s 100 largest corporations and over half of the Global 100. We are ranked in the top 5% of the industry for training quality and customer satisfaction as reported by an independent, third-party learning and quality assurance company, Knowledge Advisors.
