TDAzlan has started running a series of free Brocade Certified Network Engineer (BCNE) Bootcamps as part of its Brocade Partner enablement programme. The intensive two-day sessions are specifically designed to help resellers prepare for and pass the BCNE exam and thus take a massive step towards gaining accredited status with Brocade.
Attendees are given a complementary voucher to cover the cost of the third-party party BCNE exam, which needs to be booked after the training. BCNE accreditation is one of the pre-requisites required for partners to move from Select to Premier status – and gain all the advantages that go with it. A maximum of four partners are booked onto each course, ensuring a consistent high-quality of expert training for every individual.
Azlan has had a 100 percent success rate so far on the camps and resellers have been delighted with the content. Sami Susiaho, Head of Edge Technologies at The Cloud – a BSkyB company, who attended a Bootcamp in November, said: “Azlan’s knowledge helped us to converse with the right people, find some great products and provided us with a comprehensive training on how to use it. The Brocade Bootcamp was particularly well-received and I can highly recommend it.”
Brocade is working with Azlan to bring more resellers up to the higher level of accreditation, said Tony Swinburn EAN Business Manager at Azlan. “The BCNE training gives the resellers competency and confidence to take Brocade’s dynamic data-centre networking solutions to their customers. We are seeing excellent results from partners who successfully achieve Premier Partner status. It’s really something that every reseller that is serious about building their enterprise data centre infrastructure business should be doing right away.”
Azlan is running one more BCNE Bootcamp this year, on 12th and 13th December 2013, and three more two-day sessions in January – on the 7th and 8th, the 14th and 15th, and 21st and 22nd of the month. Resellers that would like to find out more or book onto one of these courses should contact Dawn Hains on (01256) 864203 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
