Technical Day - Aruba (Build a School)

With continued funding and time constraints, IT staffs seek succinct methods to gain hands-on experience with networking platforms. HPE Aruba Networking’s “Build A School” workshop aims to supplement participant's skill set by providing a replicated deployment scenario familiar to K12 environments. Attendees assigned to individual “schools” will create working networks integrated to a common district infrastructure. Each team will configure wired and wireless technologies based on validated solution principles. Our workshop condenses successful methodologies addressing the key guidelines to be covered in a single 4-hour session. Completing the workshop empowers each engineer with concepts and skills to aid in his current role, while also providing preparatory learning for Aruba Certified Network Technician (ACNT) certification.
