Red Hat Launches Virtual Training Program for Asia Pacific

Online training offering designed to offer Red Hat customers, partners, IT professionals easy access to real-time training well-suited for remote geographies
Thailand, DEC. 11, 2015 – Red Hat, Inc. (NYSE: RHT), the world’s leading provider of open source solutions, today announced the launch of its Virtual Training Program for Asia Pacific to help bring online training and real-time courses on Red Hat technologies to customers, partners, and IT professionals. The goal of this new initiative is to make access to training on Red Hat’s open source technology simple and quick, helping to eliminate the limitations of having to travel training in a single location and train more people on Red Hat technologies, to help prepare participants to meet the requirements for Red Hat certification.


Users may choose from a wide gamut of remote courses in Red Hat’s products and solutions for operating system management, administration, application integration and maximization, virtualization, hybrid cloud development, and more.


The courses are currently available in English for Australia, New Zealand, ASEAN, Hong Kong and India. Next year, virtual training courses are planned to be available in Japanese, Korean and Simplified Chinese for Japan, Korea and China markets.


To access the virtual training, participants need only to easily install a program on their computers. After completing courses, participants can visit the offices of a Red Hat authorized training partner in their country to sit for Red Hat certification exams. Red Hat also offers an online compatibility testing tool, so students can test their systems to make sure their systems and Internet access meet the requirements to have a good classroom and lab experience.


Red Hat is offering a special launch discount of 25 percent in Australia, New Zealand, ASEAN, Hong Kong and India for all students who attend Red Hat's virtual training from December 2015 to February 2016.
