NETGEAR Train Resellers with Exertis

Exertis has today announced that it has been chosen and authorised to run NETGEAR accredited training for resellers and their customers. Exertis has added NETGEAR LAN to its educational courseware and will initially run quarterly training days enabling customers to identify, configure, manage and maintain NETGEAR ProSAFE Smart Managed Switches.

Ian Gilbey, Exertis, Technical Services Director said “NETGEAR switches are well-known for their value, performance and reliability. Their smart switches are typically targeted at small to medium sized businesses and this course will enable resellers to confidently deploy and service their customers’ networking infrastructure with a NETGEAR product. The one-day course offers both theory and practical guidance delivered by an Exertis technical training consultant with real-world experience of deploying, configuring and supporting the NETGEAR portfolio.”

The first training courses will be held at Exertis’ education centre on 25th January and 22nd February in Basingstoke. Further training courses will be scheduled at our Stoke education centre. Resellers can find courseware details and register at

Kieran Purdie, Systems Engineer, NETGEAR said “We are teaming up with Exertis to provide technically focused training courses to complement the existing range of resources available for NETGEAR partners and users. With a range of over 120 switch models from unmanaged to full 10Gb Layer 3 chassis switching, NETGEAR needed a delivery partner who has the capability to not only educate but enable and empower partners on our innovative networking solutions. With Exertis enterprise services and their dedicated team of vendor accredited support and pre- and post-sales engineers, we believe we have found the right distribution partner with real expertise to deliver true value add services endorsed and backed by NETGEAR.

This is a great example of vendor and distribution working together to provide not only hardware but tangible resource to strengthen service offerings and partner customer relationships. We both look forward to continuing this relationship and working to deliver even more innovative, affordable and easy to use networking solutions and services for our partners”.
