We are proud to announce that we have earned Apple’s top Education authorization – Apple Authorized Education Specialist (AAES).

MDS CTS has also been appointed an Apple Authorised Enterprise Reseller (AAER), making us the only company in MEA to hold both authorizations.

The newly acquired Education Specialist authorization replaces our previous ‘Apple Solution Expert for Education’ authorization, which has been in place for many years and was a referent of quality and trust among the education sector in the UAE.

This appointment is a recognition for our dedication, capabilities, and expertise in providing the best educational solutions and services to educational institutes. Our team of dedicated education specialists supports hundreds of schools and universities across the UAE in making the most of Apple technology by creating innovative solutions that transform teaching and learning.

George Habel, Apple Practice Lead, MDS CTS, said: The Education Specialist authorization means that we are dedicated to supporting education organizations with our solution and services, where we manage all details so schools can focus on teaching and learning. We can guide our education clients through the entire process: from vision development and implementation of Apple in education to aftercare in the form of support and maintenance. Thanks to continuous training and up-skilling, our employees are always up to date with the latest developments in Apple technology and education trends.”

“Our vision is to empower educators to utilize Apple technology to make the classroom more flexible, collaborative, and personalized for each student. We understand the unique challenges within the education space and are equipped to help schools, colleges, and universities overcome them with our bespoke Apple solutions – whether in the form of recommending the right deployment model, developing tailor-made professional development plans or through coherent mobile device management that makes it easy for IT departments to stay in control,” added Sherifa Aly, Education Development Manager, Apple Professional Learning Specialist, and Apple Teacher, MDS CTS.

MDS CTS has a unique and a very comprehensive portfolio of services and solutions, making us a partner of choice for our customers.
