That sharpness in the air … it’s unmistakable. Back to school is upon us, and there’s no need to feel nostalgic about it. You can have your own grown-up back-to-school, to learn everything you ever wanted to know about your monitoring solution. This post provides a quick overview of the training journeys from Centreon Monitoring Academy. Happy back-to-school!

Training Options in a Nutshell

Centreon offers two main training journeys, LEAD IT covering the operating of the solution, and LEAD BUSINESS, covering its most advanced correlation and reporting capabilities. Training is offered either in 100% eLearning or through a mix of eLearning and in-class group sessions (Blended Learning). 

“You get to ask your questions on what bothers you, get into real-life situations, and familiarize with the tools. The session was very dynamic and friendly.” – Supervisor, Mobile and telecom service provider.

How Training Happens

We believe there’s nothing like hands-on training. For both of our training journeys, whether eLearning or Blended Learning, expect to learn in an environment that mimics your own. You’ll be provided with a virtual Centreon platform which you’ll put to good use for self-paced training and real-life simulations. It will provide the perfect support for discussions in-class with an actual facilitator or with your virtual coach. 

Did you know? Our training exercises are inspired by the real-life issues our specialists help our clients resolve. 

Picking the Right Training Formula

No one has time to scratch their head trying to understand a training scheme. We made sure our training plan is simple enough that you can figure out what works best for you or your organization in just 2 easy steps. 

1- Decide on a training format

Your first decision is to decide on eLearning or Blended Learning. If you want to avoid travelling or commuting costs and delays completely, then eLearning is the obvious choice. Self-paced training is a huge favorite, so we made a good place for it, in both formats. Do not overlook the advantage of group-based learning, which allows for discussions with a trainer and peers in real time. Our Blended Learning option provides these advantages at the lowest level of disruption for your or your team’s busy schedule.
