The Knowledge Academy will add VMware accredited courses, delivered by certified Avnet trainers, to its education portfolio. The partnership illustrates Avnet’s commitment to IT focused training in the UK by increasing the nationwide availability of popular courses such as VMware vSphere: Install Configure Manage and VMware Fast Track and more specialist training including VMware vSphere: Design Workshop and VMware vSphere: Optimise and Scale.
René Albert, director education solutions Avnet Services, EMEA, explained, “This is a significant new relationship for Avnet as The Knowledge Academy is Avnet’s first national education business partner in the UK. As a result, business partners can now offer customers Avnet certified VMware training from any of The Knowledge Academy’s 30 high quality local training centres. Having access to a wide variety of courses at more locations will provide Avnet’s business partners with the opportunity to strengthen their customer relationships through an additional point of value.”
Steve Williams from The Knowledge Academy said, “In 2013 we trained more than 25,000 delegates in professional best practice and personal development courses globally. Working with VMware certified trainers from Avnet extends our portfolio to ensure that professionals using solutions for data centres or desktop virtualisation have the skills they need to install and manage VMware products effectively.”
