Bedrock Learning has introduced a new series of Advanced Courses featuring in-depth technical training.
“Network Security and Protection” and “Wireless Networks and Mobile Devices” are for professional systems integrators. Bedrock Learning’s Advanced Courses are in-depth, technology specific, 90-minute online courses designed to equip integrators with technical expertise and the industry’s latest and best practices they can implement in the field.
“Our new Advanced Courses provide integrators with the industry’s best real-world training on specific product categories and technology,” said Helen Heneveld, president of Bedrock Learning. “In addition to equipping integrators with the latest in advanced technical training, the online courses offer the benefit of accessing the materials from any location at a time that is most convenient for them.”
Bedrock Learning’s “Network Security and Protection” Advanced Course provides up-to-date methods to protect networks from security threats such as hackers and malicious code. Topics presented during the 90-minute course include routers versus firewalls, types and features of firewalls, and securing the network when multiple devices are connected. Virtual Private Networks are discussed during the course, including hardware, software and examples. Students will also learn how monitoring traffic on the network helps identify unwanted and malicious traffic, which helps to protect the network and maximize performance.
The new “Wireless Networks and Mobile Devices” Advanced Course details different aspects of wireless networks including standards, speed, bandwidth use and how these play out in the real world. Students learn how to install wireless networks, including layout and WAP placement, wireless bridge use, configuration and troubleshooting performance. Instructions on securing the wireless network are presented, including recommended security actions when configuring both the network and wireless devices, along with providing a ‘guest network’. Additionally, setting up mobile devices on the network is presented for numerous devices, including Apple, Android, BlackBerry, Microsoft, WebOS and others.
Bedrock Learning’s Advanced Courses each include a comprehensive test at the end, allowing students to demonstrate their newfound knowledge. Upon successful completion of the course, students receive a Certificate of Completion and are prepared to use what they learned on a job site.
Visitors to CEDIA EXPO 2011 and the Bedrock Learning booth (#4334) will have the opportunity to learn more about Bedrock Learning’s Advanced Courses. Courses will be available in September at bedrocklearning.com for $79/each.
