Why Should You Get Certified at Extreme Connect?

Lisa Yeaton Published 16 Mar 2018

If you didn’t catch our first blog on our two-day preconference training, get caught up now!

Extreme Connect 2018 is drawing near, and if you’re interested in training, now is the time to register (space is limited!). Let’s talk a little bit about what you have to gain from getting Extreme Certified.

  • 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, and that kind of value is hard to match.
  • You’ll save time. Not that we don’t love visiting you, but completing an Extreme course usually takes four days and our training staff have to travel to your place of work. At Extreme Connect, you only need a couple of days and you can complete your course work easily online. You’ll already be at the conference, so it’s a bit 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 $799.
  • Sign up now… seats are filling up quickly!

We’ve got a number of courses available for you! Check out the details below.
