Delegates will be required to have an active TCC (Training.Citrix.com) account in order to access course materials and labs.

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.
