Web-based and In-class Training on Sun Technologies

As part of the Sun Academic Initiative (SAI), selected colleges and
universities have signed up with Sun to become Authorized Sun Education
Centers. These centers deliver training on Sun technologies to their
students. The training is available in class or on the Web.
Certification exams are also available for special prices.

At the centers, students have free access to selected online courses
through the Sun Web Learning Center on topics such as learning the
Java[TM] programming language. There are also courses on UNIX[R] system
fundamentals and administration of the Solaris[TM] Operating System
(Solaris OS).

SAI Benefits for Students and Schools

One of the key benefits for students participating in the SAI is getting
prepared for industry-leading certification from Sun and obtaining
marketable job skills. Students also benefit from academic pricing for
authorized Sun curriculum. Students can access job and internship
opportunities at Sun in the College Zone of the SAI site.

Institutions who become SAI partners gain the benefit of quality
curriculum and support directly from Sun.

The SAI has collaborated with Pearson VUE and academic institutions to
offer substantial savings off the retail price of certain Sun
certification exams. Online registration is available.
