Retired Course; no longer available


This course is intended for Solaris 10 Administrators who wish to quickly get up to speed with the new features of Solaris 11. It covers all the major new facilities, in a workshop environment, providing extensive hands-on practicals.

This course is similar to Oracle's Transition to Oracle Solaris 11 (ID: D73488GC10 ) but considerably less expensive. This course provides preparation for the Upgrade to Solaris 11 Systems Administrator (1Z1-820 [beta] and 1Z0-820) exam. If you are upgrading from a previous certification, there is no requirement to attend a compulsory Oracle course.

Our Solaris courses are suitable training for Solaris Certification.

During the course, the student will learn from many practical examples written for this course and supplied in the manual. Each student leaves the course with their own set of training notes for the material covered; around 120 pages per day of training.
