Our work with Red Hat Academy can expand and provide students with a well-rounded experience and access to industry-leading technologies that prepares them to both enter in the workforce as well as earn a professional certification that demonstrates industry required skills,” said Jon Sadowski, specialist – Cybersecurity in Suffolk’s Department of Engineering and Industrial Technology.


“We’re pleased to have Suffolk County Community College join us in this growing Red Hat Academy Program,” said Ken Goetz, vice president, Global Training and Certification, Red Hat. “To help students learn about Red Hat technologies and solutions and establish in-demand open source skills, we work closely with a variety of educational institutions.
