Customer stories

“During the early days of HRD Gateway, a 40,000-member international NGO dedicated to excellence in HRD/HRM, I got to know Oak Training programs. I became 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 their programs, and customized them to suit my clients requirements. The process saved me much time. Later, I bought the Oak Training full set of courses. Over the years, I saw Oak Training 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 these titles, I found I did not have to go to another provider for my raw material.”
