DENVER-August 2, 2004 - Quark Inc. today announced the selection of Sterling Ledet & Associates Inc., a QuarkAlliance Authorized Training Provider, to operate a training center at Quark's headquarters in Denver. The Quark Authorized Training Center will offer professional-level QuarkXPress training in state-of-the-art facilities and prepare students for the new QuarkXPress Certified Expert program.
"This effort by Quark demonstrates a concrete commitment by the company to improve customer service and satisfaction," said Sterling Ledet, president and CEO of Sterling Ledet & Associates. "We are honored that Quark selected our team to work in their facility and spearhead training for the QuarkXPress Certified Expert program."
