Eagle Technology chief executive Gary Langford is staying tight-lipped about the closure of the New Zealand franchise of international computer training provider New Horizons.
Eagle held the New Zealand licence for New Horizons, which it operated under its Advanced Certifications division.
When asked why Advanced Certifications and New Horizons have parted company, Langford responded in a statement "Advanced Certifications has mutually agreed with New Horizons Computer Learning Centres that Advanced will no longer offer computer training under the New Horizons brand in New Zealand."
Advanced Certifications and New Horizons came to an agreement with fellow trainer Ace Computer Training for Ace to take over New Horizons training for students who were enrolled as of January 6, when the split came into effect.
The statement says "in addition, New Horizons and Ace will be exploring opportunities that may bring about a closer working relationship between the two companies."
New Horizons Asia–Pacific vice president Darius Shey did not return a phone call from Computerworld inquiring why New Horizons and Advanced Certifications had ended their relationship.
