November 30 - December 3
Currently, all of our classes are offered via virtual instructor led training (VILT) using Microsoft® Teams or Cisco Webex Training Center, Amazon AWS Cloud-based servers, and GPiLEARN+™. Attendees are assigned their own server (connected via Remote Desktop) which includes all applications required to complete the course. It is strongly recommended to use at least 2 displays/monitors when attending this class and test connectivity to the Amazon AWS computer prior to the training (NOTE: You may need assistance from your IT department for this testing).
Courses are hosted from Amherst, NY USA, Bogota, Colombia, or Johannesburg, South Africa.
Class size is limited to 10 seats. We may ask you to select a second option if the desired class date is already full.
