What our customers say

WOW!!! An extremely thorough program. Covered the subject from beginning to end.

Stephen Fraundorfer

During the early days of HRD Gateway, a 40,000-member international NGO dedicated to excellence in HRD/HRM, I got to know Oak Innovation and its courseware. I become one of his early customers. I had clients in Asia who wanted training in certain areas. Instead of searching through the net for material, I logged onto his site, found what I wanted, bought his programs, and customized them to suit my client’s requirements. The process saved me a lot of time. Later, I bought the Oak full set of courses. Over the years, I saw Oak grow from a small operation to what it is today. That takes dedication and focus. Because they allowed me to download updates and new versions of the courseware, I found I did not have to go to another provider for my raw material.
