FreeNAS Training and Certification

Accelerate the FreeNAS and ZFS Learning Curve


Why?

FreeNAS has a ton of features so it has a learning curve. We've designed these classes to accelerate your FreeNAS learning curve by saving you hours of trial and error.

Most training courses hold you hostage for up to a week, sifting through dry and often irrelevant information. However, these single-serving FreeNAS classes are no longer than 3-4 hours in length, are topic-specific, and cut directly to the core of the information you need to become an expert in FreeNAS and ZFS in no time flat.

Take classes à la carte or take all the classes to get Certified!

Where?

Wherever you want! All you need is a computer and decent Internet connection.

How?

Simply register for your class of choice through the Eventbrite links below. The Intro to FreeNAS class is free and is a prerequisite for any other class. We have a special registration page for this class, register now.
