Develop Your IT Skills at Dell Technologies World

So, I’m at a business and technology conference where I just ate crickets for the first time. It’s not really what I was expecting at this event. But, I do know what to expect at Dell Technologies World, April 30-May 3.

Along with the awesome general session and guru speakers I wrote about yesterday, there will be a great opportunity for technology professionals to hone their skills and gain new certifications.

“You get to meet the people behind the technology we use every day, learn about strategy and products for the future and also be able to meet peers from around the globe. Different horizons with the same passion for greatness,” one of last year’s attendees, Aloys, noted.

Dell Education Services recently launched a set of new certifications that help develop the highly-skilled talent who can help companies make transformation real, achieve business goals and lead the competition.

“These new certifications bridge skills gaps at every stage of transformational maturity. They establish and validate skills required for digital, IT, workforce, and security transformation,” Christine Fraser wrote here on Direct2Dell last week.

Education offerings and certification exams for converged systems and hybrid cloud platforms are available now. Multi-Cloud Expert certification will be available in conjunction with Dell Technologies World in Las Vegas.

Starting now, IT professionals interested in earning the Dell Certified Master – Enterprise Architect credential can apply to be considered to appear before the Review Board; the first review session will occur at Dell Technologies World. Visit the Dell Education Services website to learn more.

But don’t wait too long to register for Dell Technologies World, or you might miss out on some great prizes!

Yes, if you register before February 28 (TOMORROW!), you can select one of these great prizes: Ring video doorbell, Bose wireless headphones, Alienware gaming keyboard, YETI cooler or guest pass to the evening event.
