Training at Venafi

There are several options for gaining more knowledge at Venafi and about various Venafi products.  The focus of this article is to introduce you to the various "Training" options available to you.  Some of the other options include (but are not limited to) Professional Services custom education, Documentation, Various Venafi Web Sites, and Venafi conferences.

The focus of this article though are on the actual training courses we offer you here at Venafi.  Our current official classes being offered are:

  • Crypto 101 (brief introduction to certificate security - self-paced only)
  • VSP (Venafi Security Professional - See below)
  • VSA (Venafi Security Administrator & Official Venafi Certification - See below)
  • SSH (Introduction to managing SSH with Venafi TPP - See below)

We have two training methods: In person or "Instructor lead" courses (held either online or in a live classroom as opportunities exist) and "Self-Paced" courses.

 

Instructor Lead Classes

Self-Paced Classes

  • An instructor teaches the materials - live - with the help of a PowerPoint slide deck.

  • Labs are Provided to compliment the course with instructor assistance.

  • Questions and open communication is welcome.

  • Courses are scheduled for 1-3 days, each with planned breaks including lunch.
  • Courses are pre-recorded by an instructor with a slide-deck and product demonstrations.

  • Labs are currently unavailable but are being developed to be worked independently.

  • No instructors are available for questions, but you are welcome to open support tickets.

  • Courses are available for up to 1 month (when they will expire) but you can take them at your own pace.

 

Registering for, and Taking a Class

Instructor Lead Classes

For instructor lead classes, you should:

  1. Go to Success.Venafi.com and sign-in.  If you do not have an account, use your business email to register, and then sign in.  Classes will be available immediately for those who register!
  2. Select the "Training" option.

  3. You'll be given an option on what type of training you want.  Select "Instructor Lead"
  4. From there, you will see a list of available courses.  There are 3 types of courses:
    1. Open Enrollment - this is the ones you are looking for.
    2. Private Courses - these are restricted, generally to a specific company.  If your email domain is not correct, you will be rejected from the course
    3. Other courses specified by name.  Those courses require special approval to be admitted into and should be avoided unless you receive instructions to sign up for them specifically.  All others will be rejected.
  5. Select an Open Enrollment course.  At the right, you can enroll in the course.

What to expect next:

  • An Email will confirm you have registered.
  • 1 week before the course, the instructor should reach out to you to confirm the course and your ability to attend.
  • You will then receive in the time leading up to the course information on how to attend.

 

Self Paced Classes

For our Self-Paced classes, the process is different.

  1. Go to Success.Venafi.com and sign-in.  If you do not have an account, use your business email to register, and then sign in.  Classes will be available immediately for those who register!
  2. Select the "Self-Paced" option.

  3. Go the Learning Library.
  4. Select a course and begin.

NOTE: Many of the Self-Paced courses require that you complete - 100% complete - the video portion before it will allow you to continue!

NOTE: Any special instructions for you to complete the course will be IN the course materials themselves.

 

Good luck!
