This course is designed to give delegates the professional ability to handle technical support on a VME system. They will be given skills and sufficient knowledge to manage the system and provide a service to users. This will involve planning and maintaining the system. The course is classroom based, with each student having a terminal with access to a VME system.


This course is for computer personnel who are going to manage and provide technical support to VME systems. Also programmers, operators or networking staff who plan and maintain the VME service may benefit from this course.

Thinking about Onsite?

If you need training for 3 or more people, you should ask us about onsite training. Putting aside the obvious location benefit, content can be customised to better meet your business objectives and more can be covered than in a public classroom. It's a cost effective option.
