"Wave Technologies International, Inc., a leading worldwide provider and developer of vendor-neutral IT certification training and materials, has partnered with Information Quarry Systems (IQS) in Tokyo to provide Linux training to the IT industry in Japanese. IQS, which specializes in custom software solutions, has completed a master distribution agreement with Wave Technologies to offer Linux training and testing curricula developed by Wave and its subsidiary SAIR, Inc."

"SAIR is the leading provider of Linux and GNU training materials and certification exams. SAIR produces instructor-led training courseware, corporate training kits and certification exams for the SAIR Linux & GNU Certification program. Under the agreement, IQS will localize and translate Wave's and SAIR's training and testing materials. IQS will translate the materials and SAIR Linux & GNU certification exams into Japanese, then distribute them to a worldwide network of Japanese-speaking IT professionals. The localization process will take place in two steps. First, IQS will complete Japanization of the products and also develop technologies for analyzing Internet information in Japanese and filtering out select information."

"IQS is anxious to move forward the relationship that has been established with Wave Technologies and SAIR Linux & GNU," said Kinzo Aiba, President of IQS. "IQS aims to become a global standard in the IT education business and plans to introduce to Japan the Wave methodology that has been adopted in many countries. IQS will distribute both the Wave vendor-neutral Linux curriculum and the SAIR Linux & GNU vendor-neutral training and testing programs in Japanese. This partnership will offer Japanese IT markets the chance to become certified on Linux and in Japanese throughout the world. IQS wants to assist in developing world-class IT engineers for the Linux market."
