Firefly’s Technical Education has a distinct engineering heritage. Through our involvement in manufacturer New Product Introduction (NPI) programs, we collaborate closely with the manufacturer to develop and launch the first technical education offerings for those products. As a result, our instructors, content developers, and engineers are among the first people in the industry to gain deep expertise across a variety of new technologies.
Our courses drive confidence, ensure successful deployments, and support accreditation plans and certifications. Technical Education courses are available across our technology portfolio, with constantly updated courseware and lab infrastructure that keeps pace with product updates.
Our areas of technical training expertise cover all next-gen networking, computing and storage technologies, including:
- Virtualization and Cloud Computing Platforms
- Data Center Networking
- Network Virtualization (SDN, NfV)
- Storage Area Networking
- Solid State Storage
- Converged Infrastructure
- Systems Management
- Automation and Orchestration
Our instructors and courseware developers maintain high standards of practical experience by spending time delivering not only classroom education, but also delivering on-site Mentored Services to customers who are deploying new technologies.
Firefly has one of the most sophisticated physical lab infrastructures available. Our Data Center center is located in Nevada, US, leveraging a worldwide web acceleration service to provide low-latency access from around the globe.
Technical Education classes are available through our education channel partners — as a private class, or as individual seats — and are delivered by Firefly instructors, on Firefly labs, with Firefly courseware.
||Firefly has formed a unique strategic partnership with Global Knowledge. We will be selling our Technical Education directly through Global Knowledge. Our partnership with Global Knowledge enables this curriculum to reach a much wider audience and the combination of our unique capabilities and Global Knowledge’s scale and reach will fundamentally give more students access to Firefly’s unique content, instructors and world class lab infrastructure.
