WebSphere training and certification

IBM WebSphere education resources

The WebSphere Education team, part of IBM Software Services for WebSphere, delivers a comprehensive portfolio of education services to help customers and IBM Business Partners use IBM WebSphere middleware products to deploy Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) solutions. Our curriculum provides a unique training value built on exclusive product knowledge, a complete education experience, and flexible options.

The WebSphere Education team works closely with IBM product developers and services organizations to ensure that the courses we offer provide the latest technical and product information, and address common implementation needs and scenarios. This unique insight and knowledge -- available only to IBM WebSphere Education course developers -- is embedded into the curriculum and passed on to you as a WebSphere Education student.

Over 250 courses are available across the WebSphere product portfolio and SOA. Courses are offered in several formats, including classroom, private instruction, Web-based training, and instructor-led online learning. For a complete list of courses, see the WebSphere Education Web site or access course listings for specific curriculums below.
