Cisco Names Learning Partner Award Winners

For some time, Cisco Systems Inc. has been touting its Learning Partner program--a designation for partners qualified to deliver the vendor's authorized training and certification offerings--most recently suggesting that its move to modernize specializations from technologies to architectures places even more importance on the 350 members of the program worldwide.

Cisco recently named its Learning Partners of the year, segmented by five categories and five regions of the world. The vendor recognized Learning Partners that stood out for achievements in collaboration, acceleration and innovation. One partner, Tech 2000, won in the Global Innovation category for its use of Apple Computer Inc.'s iPad for training courses, labs and exams.

The overall global winner was NIIT Ltd., a provider of learning solutions headquartered in India.
