Westcon-Comstor announced that it has officially been appointed as the authorised training centre for Ruckus in the sub-Saharan African region, enabling the distributor to offer training and certification to partners through Westcon-Comstor Education.
Isabel de Agrela, Services Account Manager at Westcon-Comstor Sub-Saharan Africa said “Working with Ruckus, we are providing our customers access to best-in-class quality WiFi and switching solutions, that enable their end-user customers’ digital goals.
“Now, with our appointment as an authorised training centre for the vendor, we are able to take this one step further. This ensures that our partners have access to the training they need to better implement and support Ruckus solutions, as well as guarantee that they have the certifications they need to gain the competency levels required to be an official reseller of its products.” Agrela added.
To kick off, Westcon-Comstor Education is offering two key courses, including the Ruckus Associate SmartZone Administrator (RASZA) 200 and the Cloudpath ES 5.1 Admin 200 courses. Both are instructor-led and cater for differing customer needs.
For those partners dipping their toe into the Ruckus pool, or starting their skills from scratch, the RASZA 200 training is an entry-level course that is of specific relevance to partners wanting to make use of, or who are rolling out the Ruckus SmartZone Essentials and High Scale controller platforms to deploy wireless LANs. The course is specifically focused on SmartZone version 3.5.
“We have already received significant interest in the Ruckus courses, highlighting just how popular this particular brand of WiFi and networking solutions are throughout the continent,” ends Agrela.
