Nutanix 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 programs, exchanging technical expertise and developing computing infrastructure at HTU.
Based in King Hussein Business Park in Amman, HTU was established as a Crown Prince Foundation Initiative to promote technical education in Jordan and the region and grants bachelor and technical degrees in engineering and computer science.
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 specialized 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 specialized training courses.
HTU President Prof. Ismail Al-Hinti, commended 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 specialized, exclusive course for HTU students entitled ‘Basics of Hybrid Cloud Computing’. The course, conducted remotely via Zoom video conference and delivered by a Nutanix certified trainer over a three day period, was attended by twelve students.
Al-Hinti stressed that this course will prepare students for Nutanix exams, which once completed would earn them the technical accredited certificate ‘NCA: Nutanix Certified Associate’. The certification is expected to expand their career opportunities in local and international markets.
Nutanix was founded with a bold vision: to make managing IT infrastructure so simple that it becomes invisible. It all started with bringing together compute, storage, networking, and virtualization into one invisible stack. Now Nutanix is a global leader in hyperconverged infrastructure and Enterprise Cloud.
Speaking about the partnership, Tamer Riyal, Sales Manager – North Gulf and Levant at 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 the cloud enterprise/ 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”.
