When you build your skills, you build your value to your company, your team and your clients. IBM Systems Technical University (TechU) events help you expand your skill set. For more than two decades, TechU events have delivered IBM’s most comprehensive systems training for IBM Power Systems, IBM Storage and IBM Z. From Bangkok to Berlin, you can choose from a range of global technical universities in 2019. Here’s a video clip of what’s in store.

The first TechU in North America runs April 29 – May 3 in Atlanta, GA. As an IBM Business Partner, tuition is only USD 500 with your PGI voucher and USD 0 with your Competency voucher.

Plus, your clients can pay USD 2,295 on tuition—a USD 200 savings—if they enroll with the early bird rate. You too can take advantage of the early bird rate if you don’t qualify for vouchers. But don’t wait. This special early bird rate ends February 15, 2019.
