Is the Internet of Things your thing? Then get connected with the IoT trainings, webinars, competencies and badges on Intel Partner University.

Intel Partner University, launched late last year, is a component of the new Intel Partner Alliance. It offers a variety of training formats that you can use anywhere, anytime and from any device. And for all Intel Partners, it’s free.

There’s a lot on tap. For 5 main technologies — client computing, storage & memory, data center, FPGA and IoT — Intel Partner University today offers more than 560 training courses.

IoT training courses

For IoT alone, Intel Partner University currently offers more than 140 training courses. Here’s just a sampling:

> IoT Foundations: A 1-hour introduction to IoT fundamentals such as recognizing the importance of data, components of the IoT stack, and data flow through an IoT solution.

> IoT device management with Intel: This 1-hour course covers topics including remote management of IoT devices, new out-of-band manageability with the Intel Atom platform, and the open-source AMT Tool Kit.

> IoT adaptive sales essentials: In this 1-hour course, you’ll be prepared to conduct solution dialogues with your customers.

> OpenVINO Toolkit: Also a 1-hour course, this one will show you how to use this deep learning toolkit, along with an array of high-performance Intel Vision products, to gather data at the edge.

IoT competencies

Competencies, another offering of Intel Partner University, are deeper training curriculums. By completing a Competency and passing an associated test, you can earn a digital badge that you can share via social media. To be eligible for a badge, you must be either a Gold- or Platinum-level Intel partner.
