Zycko Academy and Huawei Join Hands

Zycko Academy, the training arm of Zycko, the value-added distributor of convergent storage and IP solutions, has secured a training partnership with Huawei Technologies, one of the world’s leading providers of data network solutions.

The training program enables resellers to become fully qualified on Huawei networking products. The program results in a vendor recognised certification and reseller accredited status. The accreditation ensures resellers can use the network and prove to the end-user that the necessary support is available to maintain the equipment.

Huawei will offer two certification paths. All delegates must first complete the Huawei Datacomms Products Administrator (HDPA) course. This is a five day course including an exam/assessment which can also be run as a three day fast-track for delegates holding an equivalent level of knowledge on comparative vendors products.

On completion of the HDPA, delegates may choose the HDSE or the HDDE path.

The Huawei Datacomms Support Engineer (HDSE) is made up of four courses totaling 10 days worth of training. Each course includes an exam/assessment and all delegates must have completed the HDPA to attempt this certification.

The Huawei Datacomms Design Engineer (HDDE) is a three day course which also includes an exam/assessment and delegates must complete the HDPA to attempt this certification.

Terence Murrell, Huawei Training Manager UK & I Business, added: “Huawei Training Centre UK are proud to announce the official appointment of Zycko Academy, a department of Zycko Limited, as a Huawei-authorised training partner, which is responsible for the delivery of low to mid range data communications product training on behalf of Huawei Technologies UK.

Peter Barnes, Head of Training at Zycko Academy, said: “The Huawei training partnership marks a significant development in the expansion of Zycko Academy. We have invested significant resource and commitment in delivering these courses. There has been a lot of worthwhile and dedicated hard work to get us this far. I am very pleased and excited by the opportunity this training partnership presents for Huawei and Zycko.

“The appointment of Zycko Academy, in this product area, is deemed an important strategic positioning for both companies within the data communications market for UK.

“It is considered that the collaboration of the two companies, which will combine Huawei Technologies expertise in research, development and manufacture of technical products, with Zycko’s strong presence and experience within their existing and expanding market sector, will create a formidable team within the data communications market place.”

The training program will be launched as a five day course, from August 20 to 24, at Zycko Limited, UK headquarters.
