A comprehensive two day training course is available. The course covers hands-on usage of the FB2900 and coverage of the ISP/FB6000 series. Generally, with just eight attendees per course, we are able to tweak the syllabus to ensure it covers the usage cases of all attendees.
The cost is normally £750 (+VAT), including buffet lunch on both days. There is a £250 discount for existing accredited FireBrick FB105, FB2700 or FB2500 dealers.
Contact us for details of when we are running the next course. We generally run several per year, but this does depend upon demand. Finally, should you have a number of staff you wish to attend, contact us and let us know your requirement, as we may be able to schedule a course specifically for you, on dates you choose.
The course is aimed at anyone who administers and deploys FireBricks, whether an SME IT department, a broadband ISP or a VoIP carrier.
In order to be become an accredited dealer for FB2900 and FB6000, your company must send at least one person on the course. Accredited dealers are expected to provide first line support to their customers, and so should ensure a sufficient number of support staff have been on the training course.
The course assumes a good understanding of IP - if you are unsure of any aspect of IP then we also run a one day IP4&6 introduction course.
The accreditation process includes the training course. On completion of the process a newly accreditted dealer can request a credit on their account for the dealer margin on products purchased at full retail price in the previous 3 months. In the case of FB6000, the dealer prices only apply to units purchased for resale. The credit can be used towards future purchases.
