CCA University wins 4th Apex Award

December 20, 2023

For the fourth year in a row, CCA Global Partners’ in-house training team—CCA Global University—has been honored as an Apex Award winner by Training magazine. The Apex Award is more than just another accolade that CCA Global University can add to their long line of successes; it’s a symbol of their dedication to pushing boundaries and setting new standards in the ever-evolving landscape of professional development.

Held annually, these awards rank companies’ excellence in employer-sponsored training and development programs.

“It’s very validating for the team to see that we are on the cutting edge of the latest trends and training programs,” said Nicole Harding, Vice President of CCA Global University. “This honor means so much to us, especially with this year’s rollout of Retail 2.0 where we created and introduced a brand new training protocol for a cutting-edge retail system. So far, it’s been well-received and executed by our members. We love impacting their businesses in a meaningful way and to be honored among some of the top corporations is so rewarding.”

Training magazine, a leading publication for Learning and Development (L&D) professionals, compiled the rankings based on several benchmarking statistics and a range of qualitative and quantitative factors like budget, scope of programs, formal and informal training programs as well as training’s link to business goals and outcomes.

CCA Global University will be honored with its Apex Award during the 2024 Training Conference & Expo hosted by Training Magazine in Orlando, FL in February.

“The 2024 Training APEX Awards winners are the shining stars in the learning and development industry,” noted Training Editor/Publisher Lorri Freifeld. “They light the way for engaging, innovative, and continuous learning. We are thrilled to recognize their stellar accomplishments and dedication to helping their employees and organizations grow and succeed.
