Overview

This three-day course combines instructor-led training and interactive labs to build a working knowledge of basic configuration and administration of FortiGate appliances’ most commonly used features.

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. Its a cost effective option. One on one training can be delivered too, at reasonable rates.
