NIL announced today that it has received a Cisco® Partner Summit Global award, recognized as Global Learning Partner of the Year. Cisco revealed the winners at a Global Awards reception during its annual partner conference taking place this week in Las Vegas. 

Awarded to exemplary channel partners, the Cisco Partner Summit Global awards are designed to recognize best-in-class business practices and serve as a model to the industry. Areas of consideration include innovative practices, application successes, unique programs, problem solving and sales approaches. 

“Cisco is privileged to work alongside the most talented channel partners in the industry, and we remain committed to our partners’ success,” said Edison Peres, senior vice president, Worldwide Channels, Cisco. “We are honored to name NIL as Global Learning Partner of the Year, to acknowledge their outstanding achievements." 

When it comes to IT education, NIL’s main profile is the delivery of Cisco trainings. Over the past years, NIL has become a preferred partner for delivering advanced technology training across Europe, Middle East, Africa and Russia. NIL developed the Advanced Engineer Program that contains skills application tools and lets alumni participate in post-class update sessions. This increases knowledge impact and supports continuous learning.

“We are extremely honored that Cisco has recognized NIL as Global Learning Partner of the Year. The award reflects our enduring commitment to innovation and excellent training deliveries,” said Bojan Kotnik, Director of NIL Learning, NIL. “Over the last years we have consistently been earning recognitions from Cisco, which indicates that our efforts have proven successful on the market. We will continue to work hard to further provide world-class Cisco training and enablement to Cisco’s channel partners and to our customers,” added Klemen Štular, CEO, NIL.

NIL continues to invest in emerging markets where additional coverage is needed. At the Cisco Global Partner Summit, NIL was recognized for launching the CCIE Club Africa, which today has over 100 members. The club facilitates information sharing as well as technology updates. As an additional initiative, NIL has set an example by having implemented a Cisco training quality committee to monitor customer experience and maintain the high standards for which they are known.

Cisco Partner Summit Global awards reflect the top-performing partners within specific technology markets across all geographical regions. All award recipients are selected by a group of Cisco Worldwide Partner Organization and regional executives.
