When trying to learn a new skill, what is one of the most important things about a training course? The Instructor! Instructors are the backbone of any training course and can make or break that class with their skills and expertise. As a result, a good instructor helps build practical knowledge, coupled with inspiring you along the way, as well as empowering you to make great contributions on complicated IT initiatives upon successful completion of the course.

VMware Learning has some of the best Technical Instructors who do exactly that. Above being leaders in their fields, our instructors possess the knowledge, skills, and enthusiasm needed to teach complex IT topics. Their goal is to make it easy to understand and digest. In building the bridge between theory to practice, our students gain the skills and knowledge to tackle difficult projects and directly use what they learned from the classroom back to their respective datacenters.

What sets our instructors apart in the industry is their passion and commitment to the success of our students. This is the heart of our approach to learning. We are pleased to announce during our regional VMware Certified Instructor Forums this year, we highlighted the best of the best! See how some of our top-performing Instructors demonstrated these values in 2022, earning each of them a coveted VMware Certified Instructor Award.
