Red Hat has taken its training virtual with its latest program for channel partners, resellers and customers, which is designed to provide easy access to real-time training, online.

The program, which is available in Australia and New Zealand, along with ASEAN, Hong Kong and India, covers a gamut of courses on Red Hat's products and solutions including operating system management, administration, application integration and maximisation, virtualisation, hybrid cloud development.

The open source software vendor says it will help prepare participants to meet the requirements for Red Hat certification.

Yugesh Jerath, Red Hat Asia Pacific director of global learning services, says the virtual training program offers the same classroom-based course catalogue with the same level and quality of information, but by means of remote and real-time tools, bringing together students from across the region in one session.

Sachin Shridhar, Red Hat Asia Pacific senior director of pre-sales and services, says the program was designed in response to customer requests to help them overcome challenges of physical training facilities and offerings, including timing and training locations.

“This program 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,” Shridhar says.

After completing the online training, participants can visit a Red Hat authorised training partner to sit Red Hat certification exams.
