ClearPass Essentials course now available

All,
 
I wanted to take a moment to announce that the ClearPass Essentials course is now available to employees, customers, and partners.
 
This course replaces the current CP Bootcamp and is based on ClearPass 6.0.  It consists of lecture materials in the form of self-paced on-demand elearning modules and a 5 half-day (20 hours) virtual lab course.  The cost is $2,100 and is on the April price list as EDU-CP-E.  Localization will follow as quickly as we can.
 
The lab course will be available in late June.  The lab will be delivered in a virtual training format where the students will use a RAP or VIA to access the equipment and an instructor will be with them via webinar to offer recap lectures and to answer any questions.  Students will be required to have completed the elearning modules before registering for the lab.
 
The way this will work is that students will register on the LMS for the elearning modules and pay $2,100 either by credit card on the website or through their normal product channel.  Once they have completed all the elearning they can then register for the lab course for free.
 
Customers and Employees go here: http://inter.viewcentral.com/reg/aruba/accessmgmttrack and click on the "Schedules" link.  
 
Partners need to log into Partner Center and access the LMS through there to get their 50% discount.  Once they are in the LMS, click the Tracks button, then the Access Management link to get to the CP-E course.
 
Huge thanks to Kevin Hamilton and team for getting this out.  This is a huge change in the way we deliver training so please send us feedback good or bad.
  
Additional info...
 
The Aruba Certified ClearPass Professional (ACCP) 6.0 exam will be available in mid-August.
 
Additionally, we will be offering an Advanced Workshop in the mid-August timeframe.  This course will be modeled after the partner workshops that ACE and Austin's team have been running the last couple months.  Students will be given a stack of gear (including Cisco wired and wireless gear in addition to Aruba wired and wireless gear) and a customer scenario and will perform a complete CP deployment.  This course will also be delivered in the virtual format over 5 full days.  Pricing has not been finalized but expect $2,500.
 
Following the release of ClearPass 6.2 and Workspace at the end of July we will be updating the Essentials, ACCP, and Advanced Workshop courses to 6.2.  One benefit of the elearning model is that students who sign up for CP 6.0 training will be able to access the 6.2 modules when they are released.
 
Following the 6.2 release we will be updating the ACCP exam and also building instructor-led lecture slides for use by our Authorized Training Partners and if a customer wants us to come on-site to deliver the course.
 
This will become our new training model and AOS training will get the same treatment later this summer with the ArubaOS 6.3 update.
 
If you have any questions, feel free to ask.

Re: ClearPass Essentials course now available

It's a single lab session.  Think of it this way...  We took the 5-day CP Bootcamp, moved the 12 hours of lecture to videos, and left the 20 hours as an instructor-led lab session.  So the lab will be scheduled like any other instructor-led training and you only get the one lab session as part of the course fee.

Re: ClearPass Essentials course now available

Is there a timetable on when to take the lab after completing the e-learning?  I completed the elearning, however, I have scheduling conflicts for the last 2 sessions of the CP virtual lab.  Will I be able to take the Virtual lab when new sessions are announced?  I assume the answer is yes, but just making sure.

Hello,  is there a voucher to take the exam after you completed the course requirement?

Re: ClearPass Essentials course now available

Yes, you will receive a voucher for the ACCP exam when you sign up for the CP-E Lab session (it will come in your student guide).
