Box Hill Institute is leading the way in virtualization training in Victoria, becoming the State’s first VMware Regional Academy on 4 April 2012.
VMware and Box Hill Institute have joined forces to launch this exciting new training program which will provide the Institute with the most comprehensive virtualization training capability across the TAFE and university sectors outside the United States.
Box Hill Institute’s Chief Information Officer, John Italiano launched the new academy with VMware, Director IT Academy, David Nelson, at the Box Hill Institute and Centre for Adult Education city campus this week.
John Italiano welcomed VMware, who are the leading global provider of network virtualization, a key driver for the future of the information and communications technology industry, and outlined how the Institute and its students will benefit through Box Hill Institute’s delivery of virtualization training.
Box Hill Institute has been instrumental in establishing a ‘Virtualization Lab’, accessible to students through a web browser, anywhere in the world, at any time.
This new capability supports not only VMware, but also CISCO Academy outcomes - making Box Hill Institute one of the first training and education organisations in the world to achieve this innovative outcome.
“Continuing with our great work in the IT area, this new capability will underpin our future programs in diploma, degree and post graduate level training and cement Box Hill Institute’s position as the leader in networking education in Australia,” John Italiano said.
