ROOT CAUSE ANALYSIS TRAINING

NetAnalyst Spark

Intimidated by network packets? Do packets remind you of unrecognizable “goulash” from leftovers? Or maybe you’ve not yet seen a packet.  Packet Sniffing Skills gets you up to speed and comfortable getting results from using an analyzer to go deeper to diagnose slowness and problems from client to server, application and all points between.  Packet sniffing uncovers problems impossible to diagnose through typical methods – often in minutes.

Choose NetAnalyst Level I Training to learn network theory and initial network analyzer operation.

NetAnalyst II PACKET ROOT CAUSE ANALYSIS

NetAnalyst Level II Training to learn deeper theory and troubleshooting methods to solve more complex problems. A healthy mix of

to learn network theory and initial network analyzer operation.  This course plus significant on the job training and other vendor training and certifications prepares the student to take the Certified NetAnalyst Level I Test. Unlike other training and certification programs there is no guarantee that one will pass the test.  Passing the test requires immersion in the subject matter, with personal and professional diligence to troubleshoot real problems opposed to passing a test. The test requires study, work experience and applying one self to diagnose network problems.
