2015 & 2016 WatchGuard Partner of the Year!

As a WatchGuard Certified Training Provider, we have created a state-of-the-art training facility, and our WatchGuard Training is best in breed.  Unlike many other training partners, we will never cancel a class if someone registers.  We offer a robust schedule, and have pioneered the virtual WatchGuard training environment. 

As wireless access has become more and more prevalent and necessary, so too has the need to lock it down to protect your network, your clients, and your employees. We will help you take full advantage of the security and access features on the WatchGuard Access Points you already have! Our classes cover both indoor and outdoor Access Points, and any WatchGuard model!

On this page you will find all the information you need to get started with your WatchGuard Wireless training! See below for class details, our schedule, and our registration form!

Additional Available Discounts:

  • Register Two or More Students
  • Government, Military, and Not-for-Profit
  • Custom Onsite Training Available

There was plenty of time to discuss practical and hypothetical situations requiring specific configuration of the WG appliances. I felt I could freely ask questions that pertained directly to my organization and got direct, practical answers.

Virtual Training

Along with in-person training, we offer a seamless virtual environment, in which you get the full experience, just like you were sitting in a classroom.  The virtual option is offered for all classes in order to accommodate all of our student’s needs.  With the virtual experience, you can still interact with the instructor, just as if you were sitting in the physical classroom.  Each student is set up with their own WatchGuard firewall and Windows environment.  The only requirement for our virtual training is that you have the ability to access a remote desktop.

Custom On-Site Training

It’s often not easy, or even possible, to get your entire team away from the office for a week of training.  With the time away from the office, plus the expense of travel, the idea of formal training can be too much for many organizations.  Often times the decision is made to just not have the staff formerly trained, leading to extended troubleshooting time and costs.

Let us make it easy on you.  With our custom on-site training offering, we will come to you.  We charge a flat rate with no additional travel fees, so you know exactly what it will cost.  Our WatchGuard Certified Trainer will travel to your location to train your staff, just as if you were sitting in our training facility.  We also provide the lab environment to ensure a seamless training experience.  In the end, you can rest easy knowing your staff will be better suited to maintain your WatchGuard device in a more secure manner.
