ESI International Expands Canadian Market Operations

Global Infrastructure Brings Benefits to New & Existing Clients

Arlington, VA - October 26, 2009

It was announced today that ESI International will now deliver its world-class learning programs and services direct to the Canadian market. While Canadian businesses have benefited from ESI’s curricula for more than a dozen years, they will now have easier access to ESI’s global infrastructure and an expanded range of learning services.
“For years we have worked through our partner in Canada,” said John Elsey, ESI President & CEO. “Several factors, including the current state of the global economy, make this the right time to expand our client offerings in this key market.”

Canadian businesses will now have easy access to ESI’s deep bench of subject matter experts, improved coordination for international programs and a greatly expanded range of services including assessments, coaching, methodology development as well as ESI’s global online learning options.

ESI was fortunate to work with its partner in Canada, Nexient Learning, for more than 10 years and will continue to deliver our existing high-quality programs under the ESI brand with uninterrupted service to our Canadian market. We have already published our open enrollment schedule in Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, Victoria, Kitchener and Calgary and will work with clients to deliver services in the areas of program management, project management, business analysis, business skills and contract management.
