"NuSphere Corporation, provider of NuSphere MySQL, the leading packaged software product for the open source database marketplace, announced today that Polycon, the developers of the official MySQL training materials, has granted the company exclusive training rights within the Western Hemisphere. Under the agreement, NuSphere will offer three separate courses on the introduction, administration, and optimization of the MySQL database, the No. 1 open source database on the market. The company has already begun scheduling classes between January and March on both U.S. coasts."

"Initially, the training will be held at NuSphere training centers in Massachusetts and California; the current course schedule is available online at www.nusphere.com/services/training.htm. The agreement allows NuSphere to start offering traditional instructor-led training classes based on official MySQL training materials. Interested parties are able to register for any of these training courses by emailing training@nusphere.com."

"The Polycon Official MySQL Training Program was developed jointly between Polycon Ab and Michael "Monty" Widenius, chief technology officer of MySQL AB of Sweden and other MySQL core team members. The program consists of a full-fledged set of MySQL courses and seminars, on par with courses that exist for commercial databases, such as Oracle, MS SQL Server or Sybase. A portion of each course fee will be contributed to MySQL AB toward the further development of the MySQL database."
