Distributor Arrow Electronics has partnered with The Australian arm of UK education provider CourseMonster to deliver education based on IBM technology for Australia, Singapore, Middle East and Africa.
The online training platform will provide badge- or certification-related courses and includes a set and customisable lessons.
Some of the topics covered under this partnership include cloud and security solutions, analytics, IBM’s Watson and the internet of things and power, AI and mainframe systems.
Jacques Assant, business development services director for Arrow’s Enterprise Computing Solutions business in EMEA, said education is a key element of Arrow’s services and the new partnership would increase the global scope of IBM training.
"We look forward to our new cooperation with CourseMonster, a well-established training provider serving ideal conditions to provide IBM training in this part of the world,” Assant said.
“They have demonstrated their expertise in the training business for more than 20 years -- and are extremely well-positioned to cover the rich catalogue of IBM learning solutions in the respective regions."
Kelvin Durcan, managing director of CourseMonster, said the partnership would also provide his business with new opportunities.
“We can leverage Arrow's expertise and wider business network to provide training solutions that help individuals and organisations to achieve productivity, growth, career, and business goals," Durcan said.
