Get a fast start with training for rookies at IBM TechU events

Share this post:

IBM Systems Technical University (TechU) events are industry renowned for delivering IBM’s most comprehensive systems training. Each year, we add new focus areas to meet the needs of our clients. An area that has gotten a lot of press in the past few years is the IT skills gap. More and more companies are finding it difficult to staff their data centers and IT departments. And once hired, new employees frequently need extra training to be fully productive.

To meet this need for immersive training for new hires, IBM Systems TechU has introduced “rookies” tracks at multiple events. These lectures and labs focus on a specific skill-building area. The two October TechU events in Hollywood, FL offer these rookies tracks:
