Sun Microsystems has opened its training centre at Dubai Knowledge Village in an effort to deliver high standards and optimal learning experiences to tomorrow’s IT solution experts. “The opening of Sun’s new training centre will ensure that training is delivered in keeping with the highest standards - allowing for optimal learning experiences in a specialised environment,” said Dr Thomas Bayer, Sun’s chief learning officer for South and East EMEA. “The technically advanced set-up will offer training across Sun’s product portfolio, and training on many of Sun-based solutions developed by our regional partners will also be an area of focus,” Bayer explained. “This initiative will also present future opportunities for Sun to work more closely with educational and government bodies in the UAE, where we will be able to present local programs to build competitive IT skills for students and communities,” added Bayer. Powered by 2KnowIT, the Sun training centre is fully equipped with hardware that allows all training sessions and high-end workshops to be delivered through a remote lab. Custom course development, training needs analysis, individual and team skills analysis and other educational consulting services will be offered to support Sun customers and partners. Sun also plans to double the training centre in size within the next 18 months. Joachim Reith, managing director at 2KnowIT, said: “We have been Sun’s training partner since 1999 and are dedicated to Sun technologies and development. “The unique services offered by 2KnowIT are based on the technical training infrastructure we will offer Sun customers and on the advanced technical and teaching experiences of our instructors. “This partnership will allow Sun Microsystems to close an important gap in building the right skills within its regional customer and partner base and ensure advanced IT solutions,” Reith concluded.
