OPEN source solutions provider Red Hat Inc has launched its Virtual Training Programme for Asia Pacific, which it said would bring online training and real-time courses on its technologies to customers, partners, and IT professionals.
The new initiative makes access to training on Red Hat’s open source technology simple and quick, helping to eliminate the limitations of having to travel training in a single location and train more people on Red Hat technologies.
It would also help prepare participants to meet the requirements for Red Hat certification, the company said in a statement.
“The Virtual Training Programme was designed in response to customer requests to help them overcome challenges of physical training facilities and offerings, including timing and training locations,” said Sachin Shridhar, senior director of Pre-Sales and Services at Red Hat Asia Pacific.
“This programme offers a new channel of training delivery model to meet the schedules of our customers who see the value of Red Hat training but want flexibility to take training outside of physical classrooms, on their own schedule,” he added.
Users may choose from a wide gamut of remote courses in Red Hat’s products and solutions for operating system management, administration, application integration and maximisation, virtualisation, hybrid cloud development, and more, the company said.
The courses are currently available in English for Asean, Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong and India. Next year, virtual training courses are planned to be available in Japanese, Korean and Simplified Chinese for China, Japan and South Korea.
To access the virtual training, participants need only to easily install a program on their computers. After completing courses, participants can visit the offices of a Red Hat authorised training partner in their country to sit for Red Hat certification exams.
Red Hat also offers an online compatibility testing tool, so students can test their systems to make sure their systems and Internet access meet the requirements to have a good classroom and lab experience.
Red Hat is offering a special launch discount of 25% in the launch markets for all students who attend Red Hat's virtual training from December 2015 to February 2016.
