ALC - now apart of the Tesserent/Thales Group

We are pleased to advise that as of 17 March 2023, ALC Training has become a part of the Tesserent Group of companies as the first key step of the new Tesserent Academy initiative. Furthermore, in September, 2023 Tesserent Cyber Services was acquired by Thales as a larger group.

The mission statement of the Tesserent/Thales is to be the pre-eminent provider of cyber security education in the Asia-Pacific region. ALC, with its very strong background of nearly 30 years in information and cyber security training will provide Tesserent/Thales with an immediate and commanding position in this sector. By joining Tesserent/Thales, ALC will have access to a much greater range of resources which will lead to many new opportunities and significantly increased growth potential. The focus will be on portfolio expansion, the development of new skills-based programs, and the creation of new certifications relevant to our region.

Interview with General Manager Catalina Lechner

Why choose ALC?

There are many providers of training, just as there are many providers of most services. So how do you choose?

Well, for starters, training for us is not a sideline activity – it is all that we do. And we have been doing it since March 1994. In that time we have seen many training companies come and go. To be a market leader all this time, we must be doing something right.

When you train with ALC you get:

Quality. Many things go into making a great training course but the most important is always the trainer. Everyone claims they have great trainers. What we can say is that we have a long history of sourcing the best. That has been our business model for more than 20 years. For certain subjects our trainers are in fact world leaders. And for other subjects they are all outstanding – people with extensive experience who have distinguished themselves as training professionals over many years. They are enthusiastic about what they do and make learning an engaging experience.

Reliability. We have a proven track record of helping more than 48,000 people in the region pass their exams.

Value. Quality usually comes at a premium but we work hard at all levels to ensure competitive pricing. Whether you’re a small, medium or large organisation or a private individual, we make sure you get excellent value for your money.

Customer Service. Our team is totally committed to providing the best customer service at all times. We will walk that extra mile.
