Avnet brings “HP Networking Academy” to Iraq

Avnet Technology Solutions invites channel partners and end users for a two-day-training program on HP Networking Solutions in Iraq

Dubai, 12 December 2011:

Avnet Technology Solutions, an IT solutions distribution leader and an operating group of Avnet, Inc. (NYSE: AVT), will hold a special training program “HP Networking Academy” in association with HP Networking division. As part of Avnet’s Value Add program the training is designed to enrich the skill set of channel partners and to update them on latest developments.

Fadi Bawab, Channel Manager Iraq, Avnet Technology Solutions, said, “Most of the existing channel trainings are held outside of Iraq. Due to high travel cost and existing visa issues this means that the majority of local channel partners and customers from Iraq miss out opportunities to update themselves with the latest technology. We believe that this academy will provide a great platform for many more local partners and end users to be on a par with rest of the region”.

The two-day academy will be held on 20th and 21st December 2011 in Erbil, Iraq. The first day of the academy will host end users and customers along with key partners, while the second day is exclusively for local channel partners coming from all parts of Iraq.

Experts from both Avnet and HP will give an overview and technical training on HP Networking products, including the latest developments and offerings, especially tailored for partners in Iraq.

For channel partners, the training includes the HP Networking certification as a special benefit. HP will offer this certification free of cost as the certification has proven to enable channel partners to win more projects, as well as deploy and configure HP Networking solutions on their own in Iraq.

Osama AbdElHai, Channel Manager HPN, Avnet Technology Solutions, said, “Avnet has taken several training initiatives for the local channel partners and customers in Iraq before. It is our mission to support partners, to upgrade their knowledge base and skills sets and help them grow their business”.
