IRVINE, Calif., – Dec. 7, 2018 Ingram Micro Inc. is proud to announce its Professional & Training Services business, part of the distributor’s Advanced Solutions Division, has been honored with the 2018 VMware Education Services North America Partner of the Year Award.

The award recognizes Ingram Micro’s North American achievements with VMware training over the past year and highlights the exceptional success of the OEM authorized training offered by Ingram Micro for the past four years. Winners are selected from a group of VMware training partners, including other distributors and traditional training companies in the VMware Authorized Training Center ecosystem.

“Ingram Micro Professional & Training Services continues to be recognized by industry leaders such as VMware for the portfolio of training services we’ve built over the past five years,” says Greg Richey, director, Professional & Training Services, Ingram Micro. “Our close relationship with VMware allows us to access state of the art products and training, which enables Ingram Micro to offer our shared partners exceptional service and extend our commitment to providing solution providers with advanced skills and certification training.
