The Palo Alto Networks Firewall 8.0 Essentials: Configuration and Management course is five days of instructor-led training that will enable students to configure and manage the essential features of Palo Alto Networks.

Why Online Palo Alto Networks Training?

The NextGen Group brings the Official Palo Alto Networks Networks Training online to make it more flexible while creating a more effective learning environment. Class-room Training has a high social factor as they bring people together in one room for intense study. However this comes at the expense of taken an engineer out of work for 3-5 full days and at the same time does not provide the most effective learning environment as a lot of information is taught at once without giving the trainee much time to process all of this information.

With the Palo Alto Networks Online Training, The NextGen Group is addressing these challenges to make the training more flexible and effective. The normal three day course is spread over one week by running five online seminars every morning from 9am till 1pm. With this, the trainee has more time to process all of the information which results in a more effective learning and better understanding.

At the same time it is flexible as the training can be taken from any PC with an Internet connection. The morning training sessions are also recorded so should a trainee miss a class, they can watch it in the afternoon which brings them fully up to speed for the next session. Trainees will also have access to a remote lab during the entire week which can be used for additional exploration and testing in the afternoons.
