Global Knowledge, the world's leading IT and business skills training provider, today announced it has been named the 2014 Red Hat Premier Training Partner of the Year. Global Knowledge has been a Red Hat training partner for more than 10 years, and has been recognized as Red Hat's Premier Training Partner of the Year in North America for four of the past six years.

"We take great pride in earning the Red Hat Premier Training Partner of the Year Award again this year," said Brian K. Branson, Global Knowledge president and CEO. "We've been honored with this recognition for four of the past six years, and we appreciate the recognition for providing the best partner-enablement and professional-development programs in the industry. We are committed to continually evolving our learning solutions to best serve our enterprise customers in their transition to Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 and the cloud."

As the Premier Training Partner of the Year, Global Knowledge equips Red Hat professionals with the essential skills and expertise to maximize the value of their open source technology investments. The award spotlights alignment to the latest Red Hat enterprise solutions provisioned for the evolving datacenter environment, which encompasses adoption of Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) and Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS).

"Red Hat is excited to recognize Global Knowledge for winning their fourth Premier Training Partner of the Year Award for North America," said Karl Reynolds, Director, Red Hat Training for North America. "Red Hat's Training Partner Program recognizes organizations that best support the Red Hat training community and empower their customers with exemplary skills acquisition and development. As we work with organizations to fully reap the benefits of Red Hat Linux Enterprise 7 and Red Hat OpenStack, skilling up carries a greater importance and a greater benefit."

Global Knowledge recently announced the availability of new courses to support Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 7. Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 establishes the foundation for the open hybrid cloud and serves enterprise workloads across converged infrastructures - pushing the operating system beyond today's position as a commodity platform. As the largest Red Hat training partner in the country, Global Knowledge is well prepared to help customers transition to Red Hat's newest flagship operating system.
