Nutanix, a global provider of private cloud, hybrid and multi-cloud computing solutions, has announced that it has signed an agreement with Al Hussein Technical University (HTU), a Crown Prince Foundation initiative, aimed at collaborating and enhancing students training programmes, exchanging technical expertise and developing computing infrastructure at HTU.
The agreement signed at HTU stipulates that the university is accredited by Nutanix as an official Nutanix academy. It grants HTU the necessary technical facilities to hold specialised courses in the field of cloud computing and train HTU staff on the latest computing techniques in order to qualify as certified trainers. The agreement also provides internationally accredited training courses for HTU students, to enable them to obtain Nutanix certificates, in addition to holding workshops and specialised training courses.
Prof. Ismail Al-Hinti, President, HTU, thanked Nutanix for its role in training HTU students on the latest software and technologies related to cloud computing and appreciated the company’s efforts in developing a specialised, exclusive course for HTU students entitled ‘Basics of Hybrid Cloud Computing’.
Al-Hinti stressed that this course will prepare students for Nutanix exams, which once completed would earn them the technical accredited certificate ‘Nutanix Certified Associate (NCA)’. “The certification is expected to expand their career opportunities in local and international markets,” he said.
Tamer Riyal, Sales Manager – North Gulf and Levant, Nutanix, said: “This agreement is the first of its kind in the region and will give the opportunity to HTU students to be certified on cloud enterprise and multi-cloud topics prior to graduation. By completing the courses, students will be qualified and ready for the job market in and outside Jordan, where Nutanix partners in the region are constantly looking to employ ready and trained personnel. This partnership would not have been possible without the efforts of both the university administration and faculty members.”Click below to share this article
