IBM Redbooks Training

The IBM Redbooks organization is most famous for its IBM Redbooks, Redpapers, and Web Docs, but it also produces training material with similar technical focus, content, and quality. IBM Redbooks Training creates training materials for self-paced Web Based Training (WBT) and for classroom or on-line (ILT) using the same residency process that produces Redbooks. Working with IBM host sponsors or IBM Global Training Partners (GTP), the IBM Redbooks Training conducts technical training and enablement courses around the world on many of the latest technical topics. These courses are targeted to IT professionals and contain breaking news about just released software and hardware.

IBM Redbooks Training courses run anywhere from one to five days, typically in major cities and education centers around the world. The courses are aimed at IT professionals from IBM, independent solution developers, Business Partners, universities, and client companies. They often cover complex product configurations and integrations of IBM and other companies' software and hardware offerings. Because the courses are normally delivered by IBM Redbooks authors they provide an opportunity for the student to meet a leading expert and ask in-depth questions.

IBM Redbooks Training courses and Redbooks provide the same level of technical content, focus, timeliness, and value to the sophisticated technical professional.
