Implementer Foundations Workshop


The 5-day Implementer Foundations Workshop is designed for IT professionals who deploy AppDynamics technologies in on-premises enterprise environments. Using a hands-on case-based format, students install and upgrade the AppDynamics platform. This training was co-created with our Professional Services team and is used to train our own internal consultants. This course also provides a consistent foundation for professionals interested in becoming an AppDynamics Certified Implementation Professional.

The main benefit of this course is the intensive hands-on training, individual feedback and the discussions with the trainer and the other participants of the course. The structure of the course is also very helpful as it depicts a real world scenario.
