Free Training/Self-Paced Training 2019 Update

Just wanted to provide information on status of their Training Section to prevent confusion for people who are new.

New training site is at https://dojo.extremenetworks.com/

First, there is no self-paced training provided anymore for eLearning. Training for certification is strictly instructor based (currently seems to lack training in United States as of 7/18/19 for EXOS Fundamentals, as it is mostly based in Europe).

Second, there are courses that have free videos, but only for 3 courses at the moment. To access these, go to the Certifications tab. That will bring up the courses available. If you click on ECS-Campus Fabric, ECS-Extreme Management Center, or ECS-Extreme Control it will bring you to that course overview page. At the bottom you will see the option to access the free videos. Click View and you can take the free course, which doesn't provide certification, to my knowledge.

*Note: You will only see Register on the other courses available that were not mentioned above.

Finally, I will also provide the direct links below. I hope this helps anyone interested in learning more so they don't have to spend as much time as I did looking for this information.

Great first post, Nathan! Thank you for sharing.
I've converted it to an article and stickied it to the top of the forum.

Any update when Wireless Access will be added to the video's?

@Rohan Abeysuriya, Is there any insight you can offer on Jon's question?

Good observations Nathan. We are bringing the video training modules online at a rate of one per quarter. At the time that you wrote the article three were available. Now there is four as of 18th September. Campus EXOS Switching and Routing is now posted to the Dojo and can be accessed here: https://dojo.extremenetworks.com/campus-exos/.

It is correct that viewing the videos alone will not lead to certification. That can be achieved by taking the two day Pre-Certification Lab class after viewing the videos and then successfully passing the relevant exam.

Jon, We are bringing video self paced learning on at a regular pace of one per quarter. We have posted the Q1 video, Q2 is under production. The current schedule is to release WiNG for Q3 then WiNG7 and finally Access Wireless.

Any idea on when the EXOS Fundamentals videos will be put up. Also what are my options for Extreme Training/Certs in Australia?

Hi Steven,

 

Regarding EXOS Fundamentals video - good question, perhaps you’ll get faster response when e-mailed at learn@. Personally I’m not sure, EXOS Fundamentals and Campus EXOS S&R was mostly overlapping so if you wish to posess basics and bits of advanced skills in EXOS, go for the latter and skip the former.

Please see the list of ATPs here: https://www.extremenetworks.com/education/training-partners/

There is no particular ATP in Australia but even if it was, you are not limited by area. Closest to Australia there are three ATPs in APAC, India, Malaysia and Singapore. You can find online classes delivered by those or another ATPs around the world. Then, regardless you were watching free partner videos and are taking 2-day labs, or undergoing full 4-day class remotely, labs are delivered with Extreme’s Virtual Lab environment.

Another option would be to contact one of these ATPs and ask an instructor to come and deliver - most probably with hardware accessed remotely or with Extreme’s Virtual Lab.


Hope that helps,

Tomasz
