Westcon-Comstor has partnered with professional development training provider Trainocate to bolster its partner training capabilities.
Trainocate calls itself the largest IT training provider in Asia-Pacific and Japan, boasting some 75,000 trainees per year.
Westcon said the partnership would allow the distributor to expand the reach of its training program to new audiences, across a wider breadth of vendors. The partnership also builds on Westcon-Comstor’s existing training portfolio and internal capabilities.
“We are excited to partner with Trainocate to bring to the Australian market certified training from the largest training provider across APJ,” Westcon-Comstor Australia managing director Phil Cameron said.
“This signifies Westcon’s and Trainocate’s desire to continue to support our partners with ongoing education and enablement.”
Westcon said partnering with Trainocate further strengthens its partner development strategy and is part of its investments in dedicated resources to provide expert technical leadership and to fast-track a partner’s path to success.
The distributor has also hired Tomek Magiera, a veteran of financial services and IT training, to lead the project between Westcon and Trainocate.
Speaking on the partnership, Trainocate group president Takasi Ozawa said, “We’re excited to be partnering with one of the world’s largest distributors.”
