The Aruba Central instructor-led bootcamp is a lab intensive course designed to provide students the knowledge, skills and practical experience required to set up, configure and manage a network as a service offering. This 3-day course uses a combination of lecture and labs to give learners the technical capabilities of a Network Operation Center (NOC) staff and a Managed Service Provider (MPS) to support a cloud managed wired and wireless infrastructure. After completing this course students will be familiar with the Aruba Central management platform and have the skills to deploy and troubleshoot cloud managed devices.
