IRVINE, Calif., – June 20, 2017 – Ingram Micro Inc. today announced an agreement with LearnQuest, an Apple Authorized Global Training Provider, whereby Ingram Micro’s Advanced Solutions organization can now provide channel partners worldwide access to top-rated, individual, enterprise and technical training on Apple products and solutions.

“Continued training, education and enablement are critical factors to the success of our channel partners globally, ultimately providing tools to make them more valuable in the eyes of their customers and business partners,” said Greg Richey, director, Training and Professional Services, Ingram Micro. “Apple is a key strategic vendor for us and a long-standing friend of the IT channel. Our new Apple Authorized training empowers channel partners to advance their knowledge of Apple products and solutions, while increasing customer adoption rates. This new training also enables them to better service and support Apple products and offer Apple Authorized training to their customers, adding more value and further differentiating their capabilities.”

The strategic alliance with LearnQuest expands on Ingram Micro’s global training portfolio, which already includes authorized skills and certification training on many of the IT channel’s top vendors including Cisco, Citrix, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, IBM, Microsoft and VMware.

Available now, Ingram Micro’s Apple-authorized training from LearnQuest includes certified trainers using hands-on exercises and real world scenarios supporting skills investment on Apple technologies to prepare professionals and students for certification.
