Dimension Data Learning Solutions buys Excom assets

DDLS has bought all the business assets of Excom for an undisclosed sum and has hired some staff

Dimension Data Learning Solutions (DDLS) has purchased the business assets of failed IT training provider, Excom Education, for an undisclosed sum.

Roger Grant, Nicholas Giasoumi and Victor Dye from Dye and Co were appointed as Excom liquidators on August 25.

It was revealed the failed training organisation owed creditors and staff about $18 million. At the time, liquidator, Roger Grant, said he hoped to achieve a sale of the business within two weeks.

DDLS director, David Gage, said it had purchased Excom’s business assets to cater for the additional demand in training.

Neither Gage nor Grant would disclose how much the asset purchase was made for.

“We’ve done quite a bit already with the effected students,” Gage said. “We’re able to give the students some surplus courseware and we’ve offered them an 18 month universal e-learning log-in.”

Gage said CompTIA had also helped with providing training for effected students.

“There’s a whole of range of work that has been going on to help out people that have been affected,” he said.

DDLS has also hired some Excom staff.

“In most of our locations we’ve brought on Excom staff,” Gage said.
