SunNetwork University to Offer High-Intensity Training and Onsite Certification Exams

8/27/2002 - Sun Microsystems announced it is offering IT professionals a unique opportunity to get training and certification in the hottest Net technologies while attending this year's SunNetworkSM Conference at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. Built on its highly successful Java UniversitySM format, SunNetwork University will assemble some of the world's greatest experts on the SolarisTM Operating Environment and in JavaTM technologies to provide code-level instruction and preparation for certification as systems administrators, developers, and architects. As a special value-add to attendees, Prometric, an independent testing organization, will also conduct onsite professional certification examinations, featuring the full network storage certification suite. Successful candidates are then poised to enjoy the increased pay and recognition that holding a certification can offer, and their companies can have better assurance that they can meet Quality of Service goals.

SunNetwork University will be held on September 17, 2002, the day before the SunNetwork Conference begins, to make it simpler for IT professionals to combine training with attending Sun's premier technology conference. A special price of $100.00 for any of the classes (up to 70 percent savings from regular costs) is only available at SunNetwork, and SunNetwork University is offered only to conference attendees. This represents the lowest prices ever offered for these preconference sessions. Moreover, Sun is offering attendees a 50-percent reduction on vouchers for certification examinations.

"Since we began our Java University program a few years ago, interest and attendance has skyrocketed," said James Gosling, Sun Fellow, also known as the grandfather of Java technologies. "We offer attendees leading experts on the latest technologies, such as Web services delivery, and make it very cost- and time-effective for companies to give their employees a chance to hone their skills while going to a premier industry event."

The conference training classes include:
