Graceland University President John Sellars and SkillPath CEO, Jack Cave.

LAMONI, Iowa — SkillPath, a continuing education division of Graceland University, announced yesterday that it has acquired National Seminars Training (NST) from its current owner, Rockhurst University. By combining the strengths of both companies, SkillPath becomes the nation’s largest public seminar company, with each of the individual entities supporting a shared mission to provide clients worldwide with lifelong learning through professional business training.

“National is a great company with an outstanding management team and excellent employees. We will be able to unite two long-standing companies to create significant synergies and an improved market shares,” said Jack Cave, CEO of SkillPath. “The company is a market leader, and mirrors our mission. We are looking forward to welcoming the National team to SkillPath.”

For 25 years, SkillPath, along with their technical training division, CompuMaster, has been dedicated to providing quality training for businesses across the U.S., Canada and Australia. SkillPath delivers more than 20,000 how-to sessions to over 500,000 people in 450 cities. Since joining forces with Graceland University in 1995, SkillPath’s quality training has never been stronger.

National Seminars Training has been operating under Rockhurst University Continuing Education Center Inc., a subsidiary of Rockhurst University. National’s employee training and development solutions include live and on-demand seminars, live and on-demand webinars, online courses, and an array of corporate training solutions.

Graceland University President John Sellars commented, “We are pleased with this acquisition. SkillPath and National employees together will have an even stronger presence.”
