Happy 2016! We have great things happening in 2016 and are starting off with a bang!
To kick things off with we have two classes starting in January and February - Salesforce Administrator Training and Cybersecurity Training with Palo Alto Networks.
The Salesforce Administrator Training will occur from January 27th-29th at Salesforce HQ - 50 Fremont St. in SF and the Cybersecurity Training will be held on Feb.8th-12th at Palo Alto Networks in Santa Clara, CA If you are still interested in either one of the trainings we need to know ASAP. Please hit "reply" and put in the subject line your preference - (either SALESFORCE ADMIN training 1/27-1/29 or Cybersecurity at Palo Alto Networks - Feb 8th-12th).
The Salesforce course requires basic knowledge of admin tools, while the Cybersecurity course requires an understanding of network security, such as basic terminology and components(IPS, End-Points, and URL-filtering).
Both of these trainings will require MANDATORY attendance throughout the entire session from 8-5pm each day. If you are unable to make any of the dates for Salesforce ADMIN or Cybersecurity, but you wish to take class at a future date (probably in the next 3-6months) please request that we keep you on the "interest" list.
Thank you to all our men and women and their families who have served our country - we salute you and are honored to give back for all you have given for our freedom.
