ExitCertified prepares businesses to use today’s leading IT technologies such as AWS, VMware and IBM. On Demand Training from ExitCertified makes it easy to upgrade skills at the students’ own pace. Available instantly, On Demand offers the same course content and hands-on labs found in classrooms, and the fully searchable lessons can be stopped, started, rewound or repeated any time.

“We are excited to have been chosen by Mirantis as the platform for their On Demand training solution,” said Mark McCreath, vice president of Education Services for North America at Tech Data. “Produced exclusively on ExitCertified’s On Demand platform, we’re enabling our customers with authorized training content that they can access anywhere, anytime, 24/7.”

Mirantis has provided training and certification on leading cloud technologies for years, offering career growth opportunities and giving businesses peace of mind,” said Justin Nevill, director of Global Learning Services at Mirantis. “These courses give Kubernetes and Docker users a chance to gain essential skills in a hands-on learning environment that’s been informed by Mirantis’ extensive experience developing and deploying these technologies at scale in production environments. Now with ExitCertified’s On Demand platform our students can gain these real-world skills online, whenever and wherever they want.”

Mirantis online On Demand training courses provide the same content as instructor-led training. Delivered in an easy-to-consume eLearning experience, the On Demand courses enable customers to learn Kubernetes and Docker Containers where, when, and how they want. Content includes one year of access to official Mirantis certified video content recorded by professional instructors, as well as up to 240 hours of hands-on cloud-based labs. Content setup enables easy search through materials, with the ability to start, stop, and rewind video lessons. Students also have access to technical and instructor support if they have any questions. Mirantis awards certificates upon successful completion of course work.

Currently three courses are available for registration, CN100: Docker Containerization Essentials, CN110: Docker Swarm Application Essentials, and CN210: Docker Enterprise Operations, as well as the CN250: Docker Enterprise Bootcamp bundle that combines all three courses.
