Welcome to the Community,

you may take a look at http://www.vmware.com/partners/programs/vap/academy-program-participants.html which provides a list of Academy Program Participants (with 2 of them in Pakistan).

Not sure, but you could try to send an email to apaceducation@vmware.com. Ithink they can either help directly or point you in the right direction.

Other than writing an email, you could either try to call them (unfortunately there doesn't seem to exist a phone number for Pakistan) or use the Online Chat (see http://mylearn.vmware.com/contact.cfm?ui=www_edu)

What is the question? Do you want to verify if a particular company is a VATC and a course we offer?

hi.

As far as I know, only one search comes up when you search VMWARE Trainings in Pakistan. I think this is their website http://onwire.pk/home.php

apart from this, there is no other training center in Pakistan.

Options for you are:

1. Attend Virtual Class

2. got to India, Dubai or Singapore to attend the class. India would be good if you can get the visa.

I personally went to UK ARROW ECS for my trainings.

take care

2. How many students have been trained under On Wire Education banner

1. I doubt you'll find that out.

2. As above.

3. Look on their website or call them and ask.

4. They are a VATC so their classes should be listed on the VMware site here:

http://mylearn.vmware.com/mgrreg/locations.cfm?ui=www_edu

But it looks like they have no scheduled classes at the moment... I'd suggest getting in touch with them.

Please check if they have a certified instructor in thier facilty.

following is the requirments http://mylearn.vmware.com/portals/vci/mL.cfm?menu=public&ui=www_vci

Do they have a Lab in the premesis or do they use an online lab.

how much they charge for trainings?

how many trainings have they completed and if they have any testimonials that can be double checked.

Please share these with us, and if you decide to undertake trainings there, please share your experience with us.

All authorised VMware training globally has to be delivered either by VMware, a VATC, or an Academy partner, and only VCIs can deliver authorised training.

Every VATC and every VCI has to meet certain requirements and deliver training to at least a minimum standard as set by VMware, the labs have to either be VMware's own or meet a minimum specification also defined by VMware.

Every authorised class has to be listed under the Training pages of vmware.com, every student who attends must complete a registration process on vmware.com.

It sounds to me like they are a new VATC who are just beginning to delivered authorised training in that region.

You could email education@vmware.com, but what I've said above should help.

Scott.

Only VMware themselves can validate that company - I would email education@vmware.com with the information you posted here and ask them.

If they are a VATC their instructors MUST be VCIs, they MUST use official courseware, they MUST list their classes on the VMware site - these are legal obligations that every VATC has in their contract with VMware.
