Pan-European IT infrastructure provider Computacenter PLC has outsourced its Great Britain training to Spring IT Training and transferred all its teaching staff across to the London-headquartered company. In addition, the provider has taken over the running of Computacenter's training center in Bristol to add to the two it already runs in Birmingham and Leeds. The outsourced training will be completely transparent to Computacenter customers. Spring also runs the Spring electronic-Learning portal, which provides its customers with a one-stop shop for electronic-learning.
