SBCC Receives Designation as VMware IT Academy

The college is now one of the first locations in the Santa Barbara area to offer official VMware courses

SBCC’s Computer Information Systems Department recently received designation as a VMware IT Academy.

VMware Inc., headquartered in Palo Alto, is one of the industry’s leading technology providers for cloud computing and virtualization.

With the academy designation, SBCC is now one of the first locations in the Santa Barbara area to offer official VMware courses, a requirement for Internet technology professionals to become VM-certified.

In addition, students who take the course through SBCC can get a 70 percent discount on their certification examination.

This spring, vSphere Install, Configure and Manage, a three-unit course (CIS 219), will be offered for 16 Tuesday evenings beginning Jan. 25. Instructor Matthew Murray is VMware-certified and one of the co-founders of the local Santa Barbara area VMware Users Groups.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
