F5 Networks And University Of Phoenix Collaborate To Create Application Delivery Networking Certificate Program

Today, F5 Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: FFIV), the global leader in Application Delivery Networking (ADN), and University of Phoenix announced the pooling of resources to develop an ADN Certificate Program (noncredit). University of Phoenix will be offering five new courses that provide the knowledge that is foundational to F5 certifications. The coursework is software and hardware-agnostic, which allows students to develop transferrable skills in ADN. The program also features a virtual learning and lab environment to allow demonstration and practice of concepts on F5 ® products, including F5 BIG-IP Local Traffic Manager and BIG-IP® Local Traffic Manager Virtual Edition.

ADN is an approach and a suite of technologies that comprises application security, application acceleration and network availability. ADN ensures that applications are always secure, fast, and available across any network. The program’s curriculum focuses on layer 4–7, while emphasizing the foundational knowledge required to design, deploy, and manage solutions in complex ADN environments. The program is designed for individuals focused on deploying and maintaining networking solutions.

Recent Gartner research has noted a shortage in application delivery skills. “One of the challenges is to find individuals with the appropriate skill set and, more importantly, retaining the people with these difficult-to-find skills, as there is a recognized shortage and many with this skill will gravitate to the vendor community,” wrote Mark Fabbi and Joe Skorupa of Gartner. “The role played by the application delivery architect demands strong people skills and broad technical skills.” 1

“This is another opportunity for the University of Phoenix to collaborate with a top technology vendor to deliver the kind of specialized education individuals and businesses are looking for today,” said Barry Feierstein, EVP and Chief Business Operating Officer at University of Phoenix.
