The macmon training course is spread across three days, that build on each other. Each day tries to convey and deepen the participants knowledge of macmon. We emphasise on a practical approach, which is achieved by providing a virtual lab to each participant. Concise facts and the macmon NacBook will aide to understand the product on a more profound level.
This course is aimed at network administrators and like-minded takers that are familiar with terms like IP address, ARP, DNS, DHCP, VLAN. The macmon training course takes place at our headquarters in Berlin and will be conducted by one of our engineers. For an effective training focused on the implementation of macmon NAC, we require appropriate knowledge which you can read here in detail. Required knowledge to participate in a macmon training.
The macmon training takes place either directly at our offices in Berlin or is offered as remote training. The training is conducted by our own technical staff.
The fee includes drinks and a joint lunch each day. If the compendious way of teaching during the course does not fully gratify your expectations, we encourage you to let us know!
As an alternative to training at our office in Berlin, we also offer macmon training as a remote event. Our experienced trainers teach the same contents as in class. The training will be live, with a maximum of 6 people. A professional video conferencing solution offers the participants the possibility to actively participate in the training. Tasks can be worked on and discussed together. The practical exercises are carried out in virtual training labs, which are provided in advance (the integration of an own switch is optionally possible).
To participate, an Internet connection (DSL 25 or higher) and a current PC or laptop is required. More detailed specifications can be found in our technical requirements.
