training, knowledge and certifications.
Flexible, customised training
Auldhouse has been Datacom's training partner for many years.
Tony appreciates their flexible approach, providing not only the
courses required as prerequisites to certification but delivering
customised training to meet more specific project requirements.
Recently, Datacom had a requirement to train a large number of
their Cloud specialists in Microsoft Azure. The team all had a
varying level of level of skill and experience.
Based on the success of previous training projects where Datacom
engaged Auldhouse, Datacom contacted Craig Jones, Wellington Sales
Manager, to discuss their training requirements.
Daniel Bowbyes, Datacom's National Hybrid Cloud Lead, says "Our
team was super impressed with the training style and the way
Auldhouse adapted the depth and level of the course to meet
individual abilities. I also noted that yesterday a number of
the team sat the associated Microsoft Azure exam and passed, which
I'm sure was in a large part due to the great training
Daniel appreciated the time Auldhouse took to understand the
level staff members were at and then tailoring the delivery of the
course to their level. He says that the consistently positive
training feedback that staff give is what "keeps Datacom using
Consistent and trusted delivery
Auldhouse's ability to provide an unfailingly high level of
courses, trainers and courseware also sits well with Tony.
"We've got a good relationship with Auldhouse," he says. "The
training they provide is always spot on. Our people walk away
feeling confident that there are no gaps in their knowledge for the
technology stack they're working on."
"Not only has Auldhouse exceeded our expectations in the
delivery of our recent Microsoft Azure training project, they have
consistently delivered a high level of service and training for our
other training requirements including Citrix, Cisco, DevOps, Red
Hat, Agile Scrum VMware and a large number of ITIL Foundations and
