Guaranteed to Run – DataCipher is committed to running this class unless unforeseen events such as an instructor’s accident or illness occur.

Guaranteed on Next Booking – The course will proceed once an additional student registers.

Scheduled Class – We have scheduled this course and rarely cancel due to low enrollment. We offer a “Cancel No More Than Once” guarantee, ensuring that if a class is canceled due to insufficient enrollment, the next session will run regardless of the number of attendees.

Sold Out – If the class is fully booked, please use our contact form to join the waiting list or to inquire about additional sessions. We’re here to accommodate your training needs and keep you informed of new opportunities.

Half and Full-Day Training

At DataCipher, we offer our training courses in both traditional full-day and convenient half-day formats. Our half-day classes are specifically designed for IT professionals who cannot be away from their workplaces for consecutive full days. This flexible schedule allows participants to dedicate a few hours to learning and then return to their regular work responsibilities.

The curriculum for both the full-day and half-day formats is identical. The primary difference is that the half-day classes spread the coursework over a more extended period, providing a balanced approach to professional education. DataCipher has been successfully running these half-day training sessions for several years, receiving consistently positive feedback from our customers. They appreciate the flexibility and report that the extended timeframe facilitates a deeper understanding of the material, as it gives them more time to absorb and reflect on the information learned.

This course not only prepares security administrators to effectively address and solve common problems but also sets the groundwork for those pursuing the Check Point Certified Troubleshooting Administrator (CCTA) certification. With its focus on applied learning and practical outcomes, participants will leave the course well-equipped to handle the challenges of maintaining and securing modern network environments.
