Half and Full-Day Training

At DataCipher, we offer our training courses in both traditional full-day and convenient half-day formats.

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.

Upon completing this course, participants will have a thorough understanding of the key functionalities and advanced configurations associated with HPE’s ArubaOS-CX switches. They will gain practical experience through live demonstrations and hands-on labs, guided by expert instructors. This training ensures that IT professionals are well-equipped to deploy, manage, and troubleshoot networks using ArubaOS-CX technology efficiently, further enhancing their capabilities and preparing them to handle complex network environments confidently.
