Thomson Corp. has teamed up with IBM Corp. to create a Cisco-authorised training curriculum, which will be offered to customers and used to train up IBM's own global workforce. The Cisco-authorised boot camp is designed to train the three million-plus networking professionals who require Cisco skills and certification every year, says Mike Summers, sales and marketing director of Wave Technologies, one of Thomson's training divisions. The boot camp offers a blended learning solution, which Wave Technologies claims can cut the time required by more traditional programmes by 50 per cent.
