Schneider Electric opens MEA training center

Facility at Dubai Silicon Oasis will support clients and partners



Schneider Electric has invested in a new regional training center that will provide both customers and partners across the Middle East and Africa (MEA) with hands-on skill development and planning for their digitization and technology needs.

The site, based in Dubai Technology Entrepreneur Campus (Dtec), the largest hub of its kind in the Middle East wholly owned by Dubai Silicon Oasis Authority (DSOA), spans an area of 150 sq. m. and will provide learning courses on hardware and software from the company's Secure Power division.

The training center at Dtec hosts Schneider Electric's latest data center technologies, including Uninterruptible Power Supply and cooling solutions. Partners from across MEA will be able to access the facility and its training, both physically and virtually. Tailored training programs will also be introduced for the company's customers, both for existing products and for new launches.

Schneider Electric was the first French business partner at DSO in 2008. In 2017, it opened an Innovation Hub on Wheels at DSO, which showcased its next-generation EcoStruxure solution. The launch of the Secure Power Training Center comes at a time of rapid acceleration of digitalization across industries.

The center is part of Schneider Electric's plans to increase service support for customers in MEA with service partners being onboarded via the center. The company's Secure Power business unit is focused on emerging trends such as IoT, Edge Computing, and energy-efficient data centers.
