What skills do Virtualise Africa offer?
“The beauty about what the VMware IT Academy has offered for the Virtualise Africa programme is
that the content is very well structured,” says Everline Wangu Kamau-Migwi, channel lead for VMware in East Africa. “It is a phased, staged approach, that is targeted at different tiers of our solutions.”
Stage one is a self-paced 9-hour core foundational element, for students to get an introduction to virtualisation. In the second stage, which takes around 40 hours, students learn about digital business and related aspects of digital transformation. From there it becomes progressively more technical, up to a fifth, expert stage.
“Every stage is globally recognised. At the first stage, they get a badge, but from stage two to five they get certificates. We do expect those interfacing with this material to be able to be on their own, but also we appreciate the concept of blended learning. So we also offer instructor-led learning for stage four and five.”
At that level, the job market begins to open to students, since VMware partners are required to hire people with these certificates, showing proficiency in the skills to be able to implement VMware solutions.
“These are real, in-demand skills that are being offered, that are globally recognised,” says Kamau-Migwi. “So it goes beyond just African segments and actually feeds into the global impact of what VMWare is trying to do.”
