December 12, 2019:    Sohar University, today announced that it has collaborated with Red Hat to create the Sohar University Red Hat Academy.

For more than a decade, Red Hat Academy has supplied high schools and institutions of higher education worldwide that have the required technology and support environments, with hands-on instruction, curriculum, labs, performance-based testing, and instructor support. Red Hat Academy’s web-based curriculum helps create competencies through hands-on, performance-based learning and testing.
