CompassBusinessSolutionsLogoCompass Business Solutions, a leading specialized learning partner for Cisco and Field Nation partner, has launched 19 new Borderless Learning Programs as part of its mentoring and blended learning approach. These programs offer live instruction, electronic learning, labs and mentoring for professionals in need of IT, Desktop Software, Security, Cloud, Project Management, Leadership and other training.

“The blended learning approach of the Borderless Learning Programs allow them to break-up training into manageable chunks with access to live mentors throughout their learning subscription,” said Donna Wyvill, VP of Operations and Content for Compass Business Solutions. “It is the best of all worlds. Compass is the largest learning provider focused on unified collaboration and telepresence training globally, and provides training for many other specializations such as Cisco, Microsoft, CompTIA, Mile 2, ITIL, Juniper, NetApp, Pexip, VMware and PMP.”


There are 3 levels of Borderless Learning:


Level 1: Borderless Learning Program.  This program includes the ability to attend live virtual training sessions – these are instructor led training sessions over the web.  Certification classes have 3 hour sessions twice a week for 3 weeks.  You can attend the sessions as many times as you want during your subscription.

It also has electronic learning for all courses.  Courses with labs, like CCNA and CCNP Routing and Switching, have both the electronic courses and self-paced labs.  Certification courses also have practice exams.

One of the key things that makes this program different from other programs is the ability to communicate with a mentor when you need it.  Mentors are available 24×7 for IT topics and during business hours for business and desktop topics.  So when you are doing the self-paced labs or using the electronic learning, you can get in touch with an expert.  If you really want to learn something, this is the way to go.

There are 4 different options for the Borderless Learning Program – Networks, Servers, Virtualization and Project Management with Leadership, or you can sign-up for the Super Scholar subscription that includes all of the training in all 4 options.


Level 2: Borderless Learning On-Demand Program.  This is similar to the previous program but does not include the Live Virtual training sessions and does not include the labs, and is half the price of the Borderless Learning Program.

There are 9 different options available to you so you can choose the discipline specific to your interest.  For Business, IT and Desktop you can choose a Super Scholar bundle.  Desktop and IT also include access to a Borderless Learning Video Library.


Level 3: Borderless Learning Video Libraries. These libraries are filled with 5 minute learning lessons.  It’s not just videos on desktop applications, like Word, Excel and Adobe Suite.  It’s also videos for Six Sigma and other IT topics.  The videos are roughly 80% hands-on demonstration of key features and functions and 20% the instructors setting the stage and providing context for the information.

Field Nation users have access to free trial to the Borderless Learning Video Library AND an exclusive free trial to Session 1 of Borderless Learning On-Demand CCNA Routing & Switching. Watch your email for more details.
