Jenne Joins Global Pearson VUE Testing Network, Increasing Reseller Access to Advanced, Multi-Vendor IT Certification Training

Jenne University Now Combines Expert-Led, Classroom-Style Training With the Convenience and Flexibility of Pearson VUE Testing System Platform

AVON, OH--(Marketwire - Apr 18, 2011) - Jenne Inc., a leading value-added distributor of IP telephony, audio and video conferencing, data networking and IT security products, announced that it has signed an agreement with Pearson VUE, the electronic certification and licensure testing business of Pearson, to provide Information Technology certification test delivery using the Pearson VUE® Testing System. The Pearson VUE advanced computer-based testing system administers exams for leading IT certification programs from leading technology manufacturers through a global network of quality test centers.

By partnering with Pearson VUE, Jenne introduces a significant, new dimension of flexibility and convenience to Jenne University, its hands-on classroom-style training program that has trained hundreds of resellers on products from Avaya and other manufacturers over the course of the last seven years. The partnership also enables Jenne University to continue awarding Avaya SME/Enterprise certifications at its own dedicated training facilities during a single visit, with no need to find a testing center near a reseller's home office. Currently, Jenne University has over 30 nationwide training sessions planned over the next several months.

"Over the last several years, we have helped our resellers increase their level of competitiveness by helping them become certified in products from leading manufacturers such as Avaya and Panasonic," commented Jim Karaffa, director, training and technical services Jenne. "By partnering with Pearson -- which posesses the most sophisticated testing network and over 5,000 test centers around the world -- Jenne will be able to dramatically scale its offerings to both SMB and enterprise resellers. Additionally, we will continue to be able to provide certification testing directly following training classes, while course material is still fresh in our students' minds."

The Pearson VUE system brings an unparalled level of convenience for resellers wanting to take advantage of Jenne University. Through Pearson VUE, candidates can register and reschedule their tests at the test center, on the Pearson VUE website or through a Pearson VUE call center in real time via the Internet.

Following are some of the new features Pearson VUE brings to resellers participating in Jenne University:

  • Secure data transmission to and from test centers
  • Real-time registration and rescheduling of exams (if required)
  • Prompt and accurate delivery of test results
  • Real-time connection to the Pearson VUE hub for all services

Randy Trask, Pearson VUE Vice President Market Development, said, "We are proud to welcome Jenne to the rapidly growing global network of Pearson VUE Authorized Test Centers, providing candidates with an opportunity to participate in a positive, rewarding test experience."
