It’s a fabulous… Red…..Hat Trick

Its neither a game of cricket nor football….. Mr. Ken from Africa defines a hat trick success in Red Hat certifications by getting certified as RHCSA, RHCE and RHCVA in just one week. This awesome performance in Red Hat certifications is not a matter of chance, when determination, smart work and proper training from IPSR coined together, nothing could yield other than success. Ken remarked that he came to India with a dream to become RHCE certified through IPSR International Center and he could scale even beyond his dreams and hoping for a second entry to conquer the apex of linux certifications.

Ken is so happy that he sent us a mail, showering lavish praises on everyone and everything that he came across at IPSR. Read his own words:

It has been a long haul but I am delighted indeed to have come to study at IPSR.

I guess one has to be very prepared for a boot camp. You need the right balance of physical, mental and psychological strength.

The training was intense but for the expertise of trainers like Sanju and Mojan the sailing was smooth. The faculty was expressive and cleared all doubts convincingly. None of this would have been possible without the excellent instructions from my Trainers.

Many thanks also to the ever efficient Nandini; who’s got incredible people’s skills. I drew a lot of strength from your warm personality during those murky moments.

Vishnu would usually come up to me and ask how I was doing and if everything was going well with a sense of maturity and care.

I guess apart from my lecture and hotel rooms, I spent more time with Anish than anyone else. A hearty thanks to you. I am grateful for coming to pick me up and sending me back. And also for taking me out for shopping, helping me find alternative accommodation and buying me recharge units to call family back home. Please take your meeting and interaction with foreign students seriously as you are accumulating invaluable experience many top management executives yearn to have. Also use this opportunity to build confidence and self esteem.

I felt like a complete stranger when I entered the lab in Kottayam. Hari helped me to settle in.

I am also grateful to Sreenath of the Kottayam office who came to pick me up from the hotel to school to practice a day before the exam. I cannot over emphasize how helpful those few hours contributed to this success story.

The only name in my mind, before coming was 'Benila'. I had no clue it was feminine until Nandini mentioned it as Benila Ma’am. After meeting and speaking with her, I understood why. She is an embodiment of ‘motherly professionalism’.

The least said about Sri (Dr.) Jacob Mendus, the better. Thank you so much for your prayer at Mass.

My meeting with Sujith, Director of IT Services was essential. The guy is simply on top of his game.

My coming to IPSR has been epic and I deeply appreciate everyone’s contribution to making this a huge success. I am humbled.

Thank you indeed.

IPSR extends a hearty congratulation for his amazing performance and wish an equal success for rest of the Red Hat certifications

5th boot camp batch in RHEL 6 started

Opportunities in Linux are identified as the fastest growing Job category in IT based industries.Globally Red Hat is the market leaders in the Linux space. Job opportunities for the RHCE professional are mushrooming and the short supply of the qualified IT aspirants with required competence has put the Linux based industries in great dilemma. The qualified engineers in new version of RHEL 6 are also too meager. In this context 5thRHCE boot camp batch in RHEL 6 at IPSR international centre with packed students, from Nigeria and from the different parts of Kerala is satisfying and hopefully throws limelight to the massive opportunities in Linux platform a head.

IPSR extends all good wishes to the entire students of the 5th boot camp batch in RHEL 6 for successful completion and placement in top order industries.

Get Certified from IPSR; Get Placed in Kerala

Every student who comes to us for certification training has just one dream - professional success. As the hat trick winner of Red Hat Asia Pacific International Award for the best training partner, we know this better than anyone.

Kerala is an IT hub, with 2 IT Parks - Technopark, Thiruvananthapuram and Infopark, Kochi. This means that there are lots of opportunities for qualified professionals in Kerala. We regularly conduct recruitment drives for various companies within and outside the IT parks and have placed many students. Many of our students have also been recruited directly by various companies.

We have seen various instances where students from outside Kerala have come to us for training and got themselves placed in various companies in Kerala. We feel that the difference we make is in the professional orientation that we provide in our training. Listen to Rajesh Gupta, B.Tech graduate from Indore, who got placed in Poornam Infovision, Kochi.

“It was a great experience in attending RHCSS course from IPSR. I thank the entire faculty team for their dedication.  The classes are perfect for IT profession in every aspect. I was very impressed with the faculty team that train students for the actual requirements of current IT scenario. The way faculty handled my doubt is really appreciable."

Pratik Deenbandhu, from Madhya Pradesh, also placed in Poornam Infovision, Kochi, has similar words to say:

"After entering in Linux field to explore more in, I came to IPSR from Madhya Pradesh. I enhanced my skills and become sounder through the guidance by the faculty at IPSR. My trainer arranged training sessions to go well with the essence of what I wanted to study. I would like to appreciate the level of professionalism at IPSR."

Vinod Kumar from Madurai, Tamil Nadu has also been placed in Poornam Infovision, while he had just finished one module of RHCSS with us. He is pursuing other modules to complete his certification.

Even people from non-IT backgrounds have found success after certifications. Chetan Singh from Rewa, MP, is a BA graduate, who certified as RHCSS through IPSR. He is now working at Admin-Ahead Server Technologies, Kochi.

In the present global scenario, much of the server and IT infrastructure administration jobs are being outsourced to India and Keralai, with its IT infrastructure advantages and availability of professionals is a clear winner. There are many firms based in Kerala, registered with the IT parks and operating independently. Various companies from abroad are also setting up their operating facilities within Kerala, so as to tap the talent pool. To name a few, Poornam Infovision, Vanilla Networks, Admin Ahead, Syntrio, RMESI, Hash Root Technologies, Armia Systems etc are some of the companies who regularly recruit through IPSR Career Centre

IPSR has various specially tailored training packages that train the students to attain their certifications and at the same time equip them to face professional challenges. Our boot camps are highly suitable for professionals who wants rapid track, industry standard training that would help them scale career heights. We had started IPSR Career Centre to get our students placed . We also offer placement orientation sessions to our students to help with presentation skills, soft skills and technical knowledge. Moreover, we also maintain an exclusive section in the Career Centre, for Linux Jobs (RHCE, RHCSS Vacancies).

If you really care about your career, come to IPSR. We can provide you quality education and make you employable.
