Renaissance invests in SonicWall

RENAISSANCE Brands has launched an intensive training regime for resellers of its network and security brands that will include SonicWall certification training.

As sole distributor of the network security appliance vendor once again, after IT Wholesale was dropped in December, Renaissance has invested in engineer Neil Gardner to become a qualified Certified SonicWall Security Administrator (CSSA) course trainer.

The first three-day CSSA training kicked off with a booked out session in Wellington yesterday, while a similar turnout is expected for the Auckland round starting on March 31, according to general manager Mark Dasent.

Meanwhile Gardner is running general technical training sessions on brands such as Allied Telesyn, NetScreen and Mako Networks, twice a month. These sessions are aimed specifically at engineers.

“It is technical training and more in-depth than just sales and marketing. The idea is to train up our resellers and to better equip them to sell the products.”

This training is offered free to resellers, while there is a charge for the CSSA course, which according to Dasent had in the past been run from Australia with one trainer responsible for New Zealand who was heavily over-stretched.

“Now we can run it ourselves, but are offering the proper curriculum training that goes into the nitty-gritty of things like firewalls and VPNs.”

Numbers to all courses are restricted to a maximum of 10 to keep them intensive, Dasent adds.

But this is not just a one-off initiative, as courses will continue to run as long as demand dictates. Dasent is inviting resellers to provide feedback on the kind of training they would like to see presented.
