By listening to feedback from members of Vivit in these Chapter meetings and discussing software issues, this provides me the opportunity as a Chapter Leader act as a liaison through Vivit to HP on how these solutions look moving forward.  I can help translate the needs and interests of our members to be a more vocal champion and thought leader both internally with Vivit and externally to HP, to help meet those members’ needs."

Updates from Vivit's Education Chair

Posted By Lisa Nordhoff, Wednesday, February 5, 2014
Updated: Wednesday, January 22, 2014

  By:  Mark Herbert, Education Chair, Vivit Board of Directors

Happy New Year!  I hope all of you are doing well.  I have some information to share and a number of updates to pass along as it pertains to Vivit Education:

HP Software Education Special Interest Group (SIG):

We have many "Special Interest Groups” (SIGS) in Vivit where you can learn a lot.  One of the newest SIGs is the HP Software Education SIG.  Our mission is to provide a community for those interested in HP Software Education and Certification.  Members gain knowledge and insight on current HP Software Education and Certification offerings, best practices for engaging HP Software Education and getting certified, as well as industry trends while networking with peers from around the world.  We also offer great webinars throughout the year.  Please be sure to check the News & Events Section on Vivit’s website for upcoming webinars and on-demand webinars. If you haven’t already done so, please join the HP Software Education SIG today!

Vivit "Deep Dive” Training Sessions at HP Discover:

Vivit will once again be offering "deep dive” training at HP Discover 2014 in Las Vegas.  These Deep Dive Sessions are 4-hour product implementation and integration tutorials from Vivit members who are HP Software consultants and channel partners.  The classes start where most others leave off and provide real-world implementation experiences and examples from practitioners who are in the field solving business problems with HP tools every day.  If you are planning to attend HP Discover this year (or if you are looking for a great reason to give your employer as to why they should send you to HP Discover) please consider registering for the deep dive trainings.  Details about the deep dive training courses and the registration process will be forthcoming shortly.  Stay tuned!

Coming Soon – Vivit Deep Dive Training Sessions at Local User Group Meetings:

Vivit will soon be offering Deep Dive Training Sessions in conjunction with local user group meetings.  These sessions will be similar to the deep dive training sessions being offered at HP Discover.  Details will be forthcoming.

As always, if you have any questions, please let me know.  I can be reached at the following email address:  Mark_Herbert@vivit-worldwide.org.
