Pulse Secure has expanded its training programme in EMEA, adding Westcon EMEA, Nuvias Group and Spectrum Networks as Authorised Training centres. The three partners will deliver Pulse Secure Authorised Training courses to its reseller partners and customers across EMEA.
“Pulse Secure has always made its training towards certification available virtually,” said Sudhakar Ramakrishna, CEO of Pulse Secure. “Now by expanding our Authorised Education Partnership base of providers, we can fulfil our business objective of delivering secure access solutions for people, devices, things and services by offering instructor-led, in-person, hands-on training in local languages.”
Following the North American launch of the Authorised Education Training Course curriculum earlier in the year, the Pulse Secure Training and Certification Program has authorised new partnerships to prepare customers and reseller partners for the Pulse Secure Certified Technical Expert Certification exams in the following countries: United Kingdom, France, Sweden, Germany, Belgium, Netherlands, Italy, Spain, Portugal, United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia.
“As a technology training organisation, we have always focused on imparting the right skills needed for the successful implementation of products and solutions in the vendor, partner, customer ecosystem. We are excited to collaborate with Pulse Secure to add value in this space,” added Sanjeev Singh, MD of Spectrum Networks DMCC.
The Pulse Secure Training and Certification Program includes training courses designed to help network engineers, enterprise system architects, technical support specialists and implementation consultants to successfully deploy and maintain Pulse Secure products and services. After completing the training course, participants are prepared to take the Pulse Secure Certified Technical Expert exams.
“Now is a great time for partners to join the Pulse Secure Access Now Partner Program, and we’re delighted to be selected as an ATC partner. This will help our partners gain extra knowledge, helping them differentiate in the marketplace and grow their business. Adding training services to our deep knowledge of Pulse Secure solutions means partners can invest in a relationship that will pay dividends in the long-term. As with all our training and education, our goal is to increase partner profitability and the value they bring to their customers – all from a single, trusted source,” said Sam Paris, VP EMEA of Services and Renewals Westcon at Comstor.
