The netTerrain Developer certification program is the third track – in a series of three tracks. It is designed to validate the skill set in: development of scripts, reports and API modules to further automate your network and data center documentation and to create deep real-time integrations with third-party applications.
Process and Requirements
netTerrain certifications are available at our headquarters or on-site (upon request). Online certifications are currently not provided. Each certification includes class training, lab exercises and an exam.
For training at our facilities we provide all necessary materials. For on-site training Graphical Networks requires students to bring a laptop. In addition, on-site training requires a room equipped with a large monitor or space for a projector as well as an internet connection that does not block access to the Graphical Networks VPN.
Some preexisting knowledge of databases and experience with diagramming or graphical software is preferred.
