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.

Upon completing this course, participants will be fully equipped to handle the daily management and operational tasks of a Fortinet SD-WAN deployment. They will possess the skills and knowledge needed to ensure the system’s efficiency, reliability, and security, effectively supporting and optimizing network performance. This training empowers professionals to confidently oversee and enhance Fortinet SD-WAN solutions within their organizations.
