Company    

We Know Training started in 2002 when two friends tried to take their flight exams. The study materials and exam experience felt clunky and outdated. They knew there had to be a better way to deliver training.

From there, it has developed into a full-service online training solution—the go-to expert in online training in regulated and public serving industries. We Know Training has trained over 10 million learners, served over 900 clients, and created over 750 courses.

We build, deliver, and distribute exceptional online training through our training in spaces such as health & safety, finance and insurance, de-escalation, and first responders.

Our technology has everything you need to launch a successful training program:

  • A sales-focused learning management system and storefront builder.
  • Content distribution network.
  • A proven model for building award-winning and top-selling courses.

Headquartered in Edmonton, Alberta.
