Axcel Learning, a professional education platform backed by Alpine Investors, which focuses on buying, building and operating world-class education companies, has announced its acquisition of ExitCertified. With this deal, ExitCertified marks Axcel’s third instructor-led IT training acquisition alongside Web Age Solutions and Accelebrate. The three businesses will continue running under their brands while sharing best practices and back-end resources under the overall leadership of Tim Toomey.
However, no financial terms were disclosed.
ExitCertified provides online instructor-led training via its market-leading Live Virtual training platform and in-person at training centres and customer locations. The platform is known for its award-winning IT training solutions, including CloudCentrix, a training suite that simplifies how various cloud technologies automate and transform how organizations work. The CloudCentrix suite presents multiple commercial and open-source technologies, architectural techniques, and IT training solutions to help organizations maximize their cloud investment. In addition, the San Francisco-based ExitCertified offers a portfolio of certified self-paced e-learning and on-demand content.
Speaking on the deal, President of ExitCertified, Mark McCreath, said:
We are thrilled to unite with Axcel, which provides us with a wealth of resources and expertise to enhance our IT training solutions. We look forward to creating new projects with our instructor-led sister organizations, Web Age Solutions and Accelebrate.
Founded in 2001, ExitCertified offers strategic training paths to support today’s technologies and a broad curriculum of vendor-authorized and customized courses for clients looking to implement or upgrade their business applications.
Chief Executive Office of Axcel Learning, Jonathan (Jono) Zeidan, said:

We look forward to partnering with ExitCertified to provide new services and solutions so individuals and organizations can build their skills to succeed in rapidly changing environments.
