Hatsize was founded in 2000 based on two key principles:
Hands-on training and practice is more effective than just listening to an instructor or reading about a subject because it actively engages the student in the learning process and reinforces learning through practical use.
Online training is more cost-effective than in-person training and it enables students to participate in learning regardless of location.
Hatsize combined these two principles and developed a next-generation training lab platform that can be used to deliver both instructor-led and self-paced training to students anywhere in the world, either as a Hatsize-hosted cloud service or through a client’s own data center(s).
Before Hatsize, hands-on software and hardware training sessions were difficult to set up and expensive to deliver online, especially when they needed to be quickly customized or accessed by people in multiple locations.
Using Hatsize, training is much easier. Hatsize offers an integrated, cloud-based training lab platform that enables organizations to move all of their IT training – both instructor-led and self-paced – to the Cloud and use Hatsize automated solutions to manage it effectively.
Hatsize is headquartered in Calgary, Alberta, Canada and is a privately-owned company whose investors include friends and family, Golden Seeds, and the Business Development Bank of Canada. The Hatsize leadership team combines global enterprise and e-learning experience from companies such as Sun, HP, Oracle, Saba, Elluminate, Blackboard and Citrix.
