Debts of £ 1.8 million have forced information technology (IT) training provider Quessing to enter voluntary liquidation. The move follows a spate of acquisitions by the Milton Keynes, England-based firm during 2002, and an unsuccessful venture into the managed training services sector. Among 159 organizations and people owed money by Quessing are a number of other training providers, notably Global Knowledge which is owed £ 159,000. As part of its recovery plans, Quessing intends to cut back its managed training services to focus on its core business of software sales and distribution. Since the liquidation, Quessing director Michael Copestake has joined Great Britain senior management team of KnowledgePool.
