How frequently are classes offered?
With over two dozen offerings, the frequency varies. Several are scheduled once each month, and a few twice monthly. Others maybe only every other month. The individual page that details each course provides the next several available dates.
When do they start/finish?
Each course is different with respect to the day(s) of the week it is conducted and the start/stop times. So, for example, you may see a 2-day course scheduled next week Monday and Tuesday from 1 pm to 5 pm ET, but that same course is offered a month later Wednesday and Thursday from 10 am to 2 pm ET.
Are there scheduled breaks?
Yes, the instructor will announce the plan at the start of each session. In a 5-hour session, for example, s/he may decide to have three 90-minute sprints with 15-minute breaks between. Or, the plan may be to have one 30-minute break between two 2-hour-15-minute sprints.
How do I register?
The Cleo Solution Center is where to start. On the appropriate course registration page, complete the required information (be sure to note the days/times as they may differ for each session).
How do I attend?
All remote sessions are delivered via a Zoom training classroom, and access credentials are emailed to you by the Cleo Training team about a week before the class begins.
Some courses require attendees to perform work. In that case, in that same access credentials email there will be an attachment that allows for accessing an RDP session over an AWS instance where the classroom lab environment has been established. In fact, soon after the registration is approved, you will receive an email with an RDP attachment and instruction to test your AWS access ability.
How do I obtain the materials?
If the Cleo Training team has not emailed the PDFs, PPTs, and other files, you can access them from the Solution Center before the course begins and then save/print (if a hard copy is preferred).
What else is needed?
Two monitors! … this allows for watching the instructor’s screen (via a Zoom session) on one monitor and, on the other monitor, watch (via an RDP session) the work to be done by you in your lab environment. And if it’s a class for which no work is required, that second monitor can be used to view the PDFs, PPTs, and other files.
