Armada eLearning


Armada began in 1991 as a Technical Authoring company, founded by Nigel Platts and Steven Smith. At the time, they worked together as Technical Authors in the Technical Publications team at McDonnell Douglas, now part of the Boeing Company. They started by buying a single computer on a credit card. From their homes, they worked shifts; one using the computer during the daytime, one at night time. As the business grew they rented, then bought office premises.

As the world of user guides moved online so did Armada. By 2000, Armada was providing face-to-face technical training and our first eLearning courses for the Royal Mail. Since then we have become experts in everything eLearning.
