The Directors of Arowana International Limited (AWN) are pleased to announce that DDLS, Australia’s leading Information and Communications Technology (ICT) learning provider has completed a rigorous onboarding and assessment process to become Australia’s only national “Google Cloud Authorised Training Partner”. DDLS is part of the EdventureCo group, the leading vocational and professional education and training (VPET) group in the Asia-Pacific and a wholly-owned subsidiary of AWN.
DDLS will be providing Google cloud training from its nationwide training centres in Perth, Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra, and Adelaide, and via its telepresence capability. Adding Google Cloud training to the portfolio provides significant choice to organisations who need skilled staff to deploy Google Cloud, including Google Cloud in a hybrid solution, or those evaluation cloud platforms.
The deal with Google continues the positive momentum that DDLS is experiencing. Earlier in this calendar year, DDLS also became Microsoft’s only Gold Cloud Learning Partner in Australia and is a training provider under Microsoft’s subsidised enterprise class cloud computing training initiative to public sector workers in Australia. The addition of Google Cloud Training will build on DDLS’s position as a leading provider of cloud-based training in the country.
Jon Lang, CEO for DDLS commented: “Use of cloud-based services is no longer the next big thing, but rather, business as usual. With Google Cloud already a leader in the Gartner magic quadrant, helping Australia remove risk and successfully deploy and manage Google Cloud through training is a business priority for DDLS. We are delighted by this partnership and thank Google for their support.”
DDLS is planning to add other Google courses including Data, Machine Learning, and Application development in 2019.
