IBM is building skills for a smarter planet

IBM continues to drive skills for a smarter planet, recently IBM announced the selection of four (4) business partners to drive a new global training model. IBM's technology and solutions teams are committed to helping clients achieve success in thousands of cities across 170 countries. With the introduction of these four (4) IBM Global Training Providers and their training networks, we will be able to reach clients wherever they are, deliver just-in-time training and provide training that is designed to meet their specific needs and requirements.

We think this is a superior approach. It's one that's going to deliver more of what you need to help you operate, manage, and control and optimize and build around the technologies that IBM produces.

Expanding the reach of skills in the marketplace:

IBM's four Global Training Providers (GTPs), Arrow, Avnet, Global Knowledge and LearnQuest, are sharply focused on meeting the goals of our customers and providing a greater choice of classes and locations. We successfully launched our new partner-led training model on July 1 2013 in ten countries: Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Norway, Sweden, the United Kingdom and the United States.

On August 15, we added Australia, Austria, Belgium, Luxemburg, Netherlands, New Zealand and Switzerland. And continue to add 13 more countries to the list by the end of September: Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia and Spain. With these implementations, our clients will continue to gain greater access to the IBM training they need to achieve a faster return on their IT investments.

IBM Global Training Providers and IBM Training are working together to build skills for a smarter planet.
