Tishk International University has joined forces with the Red Hat Academy and gained a new opportunity to access open-source training by signing an official partnership between the two partners.

This partnership is aimed at strengthening the university ties with one of the world’s leading open-source software solutions company to bridge the skill gap between academia and industry. The partnership will also provide the next generation of IT talent with access to a wide range of training courses and certification exams.

The Red Hat Academy helps educational institutions keep their pace with the demands in the IT industry along with helping students in reaching their academic and career potential. The Linux® platform, application services, and cloud technologies curriculum involves hands-on instruction built on the expertise of Red Hat development, support, and field consulting teams. Rather than learning theoretical skills, students learn practical skills based on use cases from thousands of enterprise implementations.

The Red Hat Academy Learning Platform offers an enhanced user experience that includes an array of features aimed to benefit our students, instructors, and the institution as a whole.

Tishk International University’s involvement with the Red Hat Academy, which is the 1st signed partnership in Kurdistan Region and the 2nd in Iraq, will further enhance the university’s reputation as a technology education leader both nationally and worldwide.
