VMware has rolled out the pilot Getting Future Ready training initiative to prepare the Singapore workforce for next-generation technologies.
Available to its customers and partners enrolled to the SGUnited Traineeship programme, the eight-week course will provide up to 1,000 traineeship opportunities to Singapore-based companies.
Comprising of a mix of instructor-led and self-paced training sessions conducted in-person and online, it offers structured learning paths towards emerging cloud native job roles and jobs. Trainees will get the opportunity to learn and engage with industry specialists through hackathons, hands-on labs and gamification.
At the end of the programme, trainees will undergo a capstone certification event where they will be able to apply what they have learnt. Those who pass the exam will be awarded industry-recognised certifications such as VMware Certified Technical Associate (VCTA). This new VCTA credential will validate the skills and knowledge required by candidates performing operational tasks within a virtualised infrastructure, in areas across multi-cloud operations, networking, security, and device management.
“As organisations continue to adapt, respond and accelerate their businesses in this new digital paradigm, VMware is committed to leveraging our industry-leading technologies and expertise to upskill and enable a new generation of tech talents, so they can drive Singapore’s economy forward in its next chapter of growth,” said Adrian Hia, Country Manager of VMware Singapore.
