A10 Networks today announced that Ingram Micro has been approved to deliver training on behalf of the company across United Arab Emirates, Oman, Kuwait, Bahrain, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Iraq, Qatar and Saudi Arabia.
As part of the agreement, Ingram Micro’s trainers and qualified instructors have been through preparation and guidance with A10’s technical team to ensure that they are certified and qualified to deliver A10 training to partners and customers. This will enable resellers’ technical staff to be certified trainers and users, which in turn means that they will be able to provide enhanced implementation and support services to their customers. Similarly, if end users don’t have certified engineers, they can sign up for training courses as well.
Ingram Micro will have in-country A10 ATC Accredited Instructors in UAE, KSA and Egypt. The training will be delivered through a combination of classroom sessions in the company’s state-of-the-art lab centres as well as online sessions. The training timetable will be published on both, the Ingram Micro and the A10 Networks websites.
The training courses will include System Administration, CGNAT & IPV6 Migration, Secure Web Access and DDoS Protection. For those that complete individual modules, they will be a ‘certified professional’ in that area. Upon successful completion of all exams, they earn the certification of ‘A10 Certified Architect.’
Ehab Halablab, Regional Sales Director – ME at A10 Networks says, “A10 Networks has been experiencing rapid growth in the Middle East. With this we have seen an increasing regional demand for training in our company’s solutions, necessitating additional dedicated training resources. Ingram Micro has a big physical presence in the region and a strong portfolio of other technology vendor trainings that complement our offerings. We see the value-added distributor as being the ideal teammate to help deliver training in order to increase the level of recognized expertise within organizations while increasing their capability for pre- and post-sales support.”
“We believe that strengthening technology skills in the region through training and certification will provide an impetus to the digital transformation efforts of organizations in the Middle East.”
