Course length

The course is usually delivered as a 3 to 9 day workshop depending on the modules to be taught and the previous knowledge of the students.


All our training is delivered directly by our engineers. Only in this way can we guarantee the highest quality of our courses. The materials and laboratories we use are both official IBM materials and self-developed. They are based on our experience during the deployments, migrations and trainings we have conducted over the past years.
