Extreme Connect 2019 will be here before you know it, are you ready? Have you thought about enrolling in pre-conference training? Space is filling up fast for the opportunity to get trained and certified on our platforms.

What are the benefits of Extreme Connect’s Pre-Conference Training?

  • First of all, you’ll expand your skillset. We’re offering multiple in-depth courses designed to advance your knowledge and help you successfully manage Extreme products and software. It’s time to up your game.
  • Second, you can enrich your resume. Extreme credentials represent your expertise in specific Extreme technologies. That kind of value is hard to match. Note, the certification exams will not take place on-site in order to allow more time in the classroom for hands-on labs. However, you have up to 45 days after the event to take the exam online and complete your certification at no cost.
  • You’ll save time. Not that we don’t love visiting you, but completing an Extreme course, including hands-on labs, usually takes four days. Plus, our training staff have to travel to your place of work. At Extreme Connect, you only need a couple of days of hands-on labs onsite, and you can complete your pre-conference course work easily online at your own pace. You’ll already be at the conference, so it’s way less disruptive than stopping your day-to-day schedule for additional education.
  • It’s cheaper to do training at Extreme Connect. By a good bit, too—the cost of standard Extreme training is $2k. Training at Extreme Connect is only $899. Sign up now… seats are filling up quickly!
