28 February 2006, Gallatin, Missouri – WideBand announced its next Network Management Unit and Layer 3 Certification Training. The event is scheduled for April 18-20, 2006 and will be held at the International Academy of Science in Independence, Missouri.
This training event was scheduled because of the large amount of interest from administrators and technicians currently using or considering WideBand equipment in their networks. The event also serves as certification training for authorized WideBand Gold Resellers.
Last week, WideBand conducted their first NMU (Network Management Unit) Training class at the Academy. It was attended by resellers and customers from states all over the country including California, Florida, Oklahoma, Texas, New York, Hawaii, and Washington. The attendees were very enthused coming out of the class.
“The training provided a bridge from documentation to actual use,” said Steve McInchak, Network Manager at City of Carmel-by-the-sea in California. “The labs were real world examples of proper set up and use of WideBand switches.”
“Not only was it good training on specific products, but it also clarified network issues and solutions in general,” added Wayne Cook, Sr. Digital Video Systems Engineer at Daystar TV Network in Dallas, TX, a current WideBand user.
The training was also a unique opportunity for potential WideBand users and reseller partners to get advanced network certification while at the same time evaluating the best fit for WideBand products in their organizations.
“I really enjoyed my time with the folks at WideBand here at the Academy,” said Jeff Neas, Network Administrator at Bothwell Regional Health Center in Sedalia, MO. “It was a fun and informative experience. I look forward to using this new information in my workplace as we continue to deploy WideBand products.”
Among the new WideBand Resellers attending was Steve Chen, Senior Consultant at Iniac in Los Angeles, CA. He also had good things to say about the training. “Well organized on the topic and delivery of information. Many things to be learned on advanced technology being simplified for easy digestion.”
“Very informative — quite a bit of information packed in two and a half days,” said Steve Friend, Network Administrator at Helzberg Diamonds in Kansas City. “Facilities were phenomenal. Instructors are well informed and knew the material inside and out.”
