Enroll



Summary


What is On Demand format?

On Demand courses are great if you like to learn on your own, at your own pace, and you want to get started right away. They include the same content and hands-on labs as our instructor-led classes, and you can access the recordings and demos for up to 30 days from your date of purchase. You can pause, skip and replay as much as you like. In this course, you’ll also get access to your own lab environment for up to 24 hours to perform guided exercises.

With On Demand courses, your training is available immediately and expires 30 days from the time of purchase (no exceptions​)​. If you aren't sure when you'll start your course, we recommend that you buy training credits! With training credits you can redeem your courses whenever you want within that 1 year. While the 30 day clock still remains, you choose when to trigger the clock by choosing when to purchase your class.

Important Note: Once you use your training credits to buy an On Demand course, the 30 day clock begins on that date.

Setup Requirements

Students use an individual virtual lab machine for hands-on exercises. This requires access to a fast broadband Internet connection with a capable computer.
