Danatec, Canada’s Largest Safety Training Publishing Company merges with Yardstick Testing and Training Experts

Leveraging technology to deliver the online safety training on the market

An innovative business partnership between Danatec and Yardstick was announced today. The merger consolidates two successful companies as a leader in online testing and training technology and services. Alina Martin, President & CEO of Danatec Educational Services Ltd., recognizes the integral role technology plays in reaching learners with life-saving educational safety training and resources. Aline, an award-winning Canadian entrepreneur, began searching for a new training technology partner six years ago. Since then, Yardstick and Danatec have enjoyed a successful collaboration, with Danatec being one of Yardstick’s largest training customers deploying online learning to hundreds of thousands of learners each year.

“By combining our unique strengths – a robust technology platform, award winning industry recognized content and eLearning development – with our unparalleled distribution channels, we will be best positioned to serve the North American Health and Safety markets, as well as other regulated verticals. Our companies have experienced exponential growth in the past several years and this merger, between two strong organizations, will only amplify that.”   Alina Martin, President & CEO of Dante Educational Services Ltd.

Better positioned to serve learners.

This move will leverage our mutual strengths, enabling our teams to focus on what we each do best, bringing our testing and training clients service targeted to their unique needs.

“Danatec has been serving the health, safety and compliance market in Canada for over 30 years. Arguably the largest online and educational materials provider in this space, Danatec has always been a company we admire. By combining our teams, we will now have the expertise and distribution channels under one roof to deliver expanded direct-to-learner services as well as execute our strategy to grow into other regulated verticals.   Chris LaBossiere, CEO and Co-Founder of Yardstick
