New York Wired for Education, LLC (New York Wired), founded in 1991, was originally established to provide state and local governments, not-for-profits agencies, and corporations with innovative and affordable training programs and technology solutions. New York Wired is now the only eTraining company solely focused on the needs of the public workforce training and development market. Using a combination of eLearning technology, instructor-led training and custom development, New York Wired has provided training programs to more than 50,000 adult learners in over 15 states.
In 2008, New York Wired introduced Metrix Learning®, its Web-based learning management system (LMS). Metrix Learning® was designed to meet the current and emerging training service delivery needs of Workforce Investment Boards (WIBs) and their customers (unemployed, under-employed and dislocated workers) that require new skills, enhanced skills, and certification training programs to prepare them for new employment opportunities.
