Practice Labs and Prodigy Learning today announced a strategic partnership, under which Prodigy Learning will offer Practice Labs cloud-based practice labs in the UK and Ireland markets.
A Practice Lab is a pre-configured real hardware environment, hosted in the cloud with accompanying lab guides for fast, convenient access to gain hands on experience. Practice Labs hosts a variety of lab configurations aligned to industry recognised IT certifications from vendors including Cisco, CompTIA, Microsoft and VMware.
Ricky Doyle (Co-Founder, Practice Labs), is confident the partnership will provide students a richer learning experience in IT training. Ricky said: “Working with Prodigy Learning gives us an opportunity to bring the Practice Labs home so to speak, we have primarily operated in the US for the past few years so it will be great to see UK learners benefit from the solution too. With this partnership, we aim to change the face of online technical training by providing our customers the best online IT training solution available.”
Practice Labs enable learners to confront real-world IT challenges without the threat of harm to their own or an organization’s live IT equipment. Using Practice Labs in conjunction with Prodigy Learning’s other high-quality learning solutions from partners such as MeasureUp and Wiley will enable learners to experience a comprehensive training solution that incorporates all aspects of real-world IT. The labs are available for Cisco, CompTIA, Microsoft and VMWare certifications.
Commenting on the announcement, Andrew Flood (CEO, Prodigy Learning) said: “We look to provide market-leading learning solutions for IT certifications, driven by customer demand. Practice Labs’ offering meets demand from our customers for hands-on experience for learners preparing for IT certifications as well as offering a natural complementary fit with our other learning materials such as textbooks, video training and practice tests.”
