How does it work?


The training sessions we offer include the following formats:

Instructor-led Online/Onsite (ILO)

These training sessions are available as either online webinars or onsite (on demand, on Clavister or customer premises).

Attendants benefit from a trainer’s expert knowledge when it comes to theoretical overview, insights, in-depth questions, and, where applicable, practical guidance and troubleshooting. Interacting with both trainers and other participants is a proven and engaging way to share knowledge and learn to solve problems.

Self-paced training

Self-paced training brings a great deal of freedom in terms of time management. Attendants are offered contents and applied exercises through an e-learning platform that weaves together text, visual aid and skill assessment. Access is available on short notice and it is also the most cost-effective solution. However, the benefits are much more dependent on each attendant’s personal commitment.


Attendants get remote access to a comprehensive lab environment consisting of a PC and a security setup (firewalls and servers) in which to complete hands-on exercises. A trainer can track progress and assist where necessary.


Various permutations of the above formats are available in the training sessions we offer:


Instructor-led training hands-on (ILO+LAB) is the most effective way to reach excellence.

You benefit from the trainer’s continuous presence and interactions to personally guide you through the contents and in-depth hands-on exercises.

It is also the most demanding format because these sessions are typically carried out over 1 or 2 days, and are known to be both densely packed and fast paced. Should you survive the ordeal, the upside is that you have the functional knowledge needed to start working immediately!

The number of participants is usually limited to eight for the best possible learning experience, but tailor-made training sessions involving e.g. bigger groups, specific time zones, language, hardware or adapted content can be arranged upon request. Contact if you want to know more!

Self-paced + LAB

As an alternative, self-paced education trades convenience and availability for overall speed.

You can join open sessions at any time and learn according to your pace and schedule, but the learning is autonomous. Extended LAB time with in-depth hands-on exercises is included, which involves trainer’s assistance and support.

ILO (no LAB)

These sessions only differ from the ILO+LAB version in that they do not include access to a lab environment. They are therefore not hands-on and of a more theoretical nature.

Self-paced (no LAB)

These sessions only differ from the self-paced + LAB version in that they do not include access to a lab environment. They are therefore not hands-on and of a more theoretical nature and getting all the benefits from them requires each attendant to independently set up their own environment and/or fill up possible knowledge gaps.


It is best to be knowledgeable in TCP/IP, routing and firewall basics. No previous knowledge of Clavister products is required for introductory courses.
The optimal setup is to use a computer with fast Internet connectivity and, for formats involving LAB, two monitors. A headset with microphone for easy communication with trainer and trainees is recommended for ILO sessions.
To participate in a training, purchase a voucher and book a time at your convenience. We have sessions all year round.


Most if not all sessions give you the opportunity to take an exam and get a certification. For each exam you pass, you will receive a shiny certificate and a badge you can boast about on social media. If you are part of a partner program, the more knowledgeable you are, the better your status and discounts! You get two chances for each certification exam. Should you fail both, it is possible to purchase additional certification events in case you need to retake the exam. Certifications are generally valid for 36 months.

For “tracks” (such as the NetWall track) which consist of 4 different certifications which together unlock the “expert” status, the validity of which extends from the date of the last acquired cert.
