In addition to the CALC of the Year award, Layer8 Co-Founder Todd Hurst was named the Most Strategic Citrix Certified Instructor (CCI) 2011 in North America.
‘CALC of the Year’ is the most prestigious Citrix Education award recognizing the top Citrix Authorized Learning Center in North America. Layer8, a partner of Citrix since 2008, was recognized by Citrix for its outstanding student evaluations, low class cancellation rates and high-training volume. Hurst was awarded as ‘Most Strategic CCI 2011’ as a result of his collaboration with Citrix to develop innovative training methods and teach first generation and beta classes.
“We can always rely on Layer8 to provide the best training experience possible for our customers. As one of our largest training partners in North America, Layer8 Consistently demonstrates a commitment to quality. As a result, Layer8 trained over 1,000 students in 2011,” said Hector Lima, VP Americas Field Services for Citrix Systems. “We value our strategic partnership with Layer8 and recognize their focus and commitment as a ‘go-to’ Citrix Partner.”
This is the third year in a row Layer8 Training has been recognized by Citrix Education. In 2010 Layer8 was named Top Regional Partner – U.S. West, and in 2009 was named CALC of the Year. In addition to these awards, Layer8 was recently designated a “Premium” Citrix Partner, which is the highest tier for a Citrix Authorized Learning Center. Hurst has previously held Most Strategic CCI in 2009 and 2007, and CCI of the Year in 2005 and 2006, and 2008.
