Flexible Training Options
The furious pace of business and technology today demands training options that are both cost and time-efficient for both your company and IT staff. WebSphere Education meets these challenges with flexible training delivery methods that let you maximize your training budget, including courses available online or locally in more than 55 countries around the world.
You can choose from several training options, including:
Open enrollment public classes
WebSphere Education offers a broad range of courses across our curriculum at regularly scheduled times at IBM and Partner Training Centers across the US, Europe and Asia. Classes are offered in sessions ranging from two to five days and many include hands-on labs to reinforce the material taught by our instructors. Publicly scheduled courses are ideal for training a small group of team members from your company. You can view an updated schedule of public classes from the WebSphere Education homepage by visiting the WebSphere Curriculum section.
If you need to train a large number of team members or you require training for a specific skill set then IBM WebSphere Education Private Training is an optimal solution for your training requirements. With WebSphere Education Private Training you can customize any of our available courses by tailoring the course content to address your specific environment, project, or resource needs, and optional mentoring to ensure that your resources put what they learn to immediate, productive use. Our instructors deliver the training, including hands-on labs, at your location saving your company both costs and time.

WebSphere Education offers over 100 remote and self-paced training sessions in addition to our classroom-based curriculum. These courses provide the same content as classroom courses but with the advantage and cost-saving of learning from your location and on your schedule. You can choose from a wide spectrum of introductory to deep dive classes to meet your education goals. In addition, many of our eLearning education offerings are free of charge.
