Gulf Business Machines, a provider of IT solutions to the Middle East, has launched Oman's first Cisco training centre.

Based in GBM's Quram premises in the capital Muscat, the centre will offer a wide range of Cisco-based training services to IT professionals and job seekers in both the private and public sectors.

Each training session at the centre will be led by Certified Cisco Systems Instructors (CCSIs) and deliver technology, product-specific and certification-preparation courses, using the latest hardware and remote labs.

"The launch of our training centre in Oman marks a milestone for GBM, and shows GBM's commitment to invest in developing IT talent in Oman as part of GBM's Learning Services offerings. This initiative reinforces our efforts to hel­p Omanisation, by providing cutting edge Cisco training solutions to Oman's IT workforce and jobseekers to fit a wide variety of their needs," said Olivier Mouries, Oman country general manager, GBM. "GBM is committed to supporting local talent in Oman, and providing them with the skills needed to excel in today's ever-growing IT industry."

"Cisco is very proud to collaborate with GBM in this initiative, which we hope will encourage local Omani talent to realise their full potential to be tomorrow's leaders of the local and regional IT industry. The Cisco Training Centre is the first of its kind in Oman, and we are confident that it will bring great value to the local community," added Iyad Al Chammat, Cisco General Manager in Oman.

GBM has been a Cisco learning partner (CLP) since 2008, and already has presences in the UAE, Bahrain, Pakistan, Kuwait and Qatar.
