Proper administration of DDI is critical for the day-to-day operation of every network. But many NetOps teams have major gaps in their DDI knowledge.
Fill those gaps and grow your team’s skillset with training from BlueCat. Our curriculum covers everything from DNS basics to advanced functionality.
Learn at your own pace with our eLearning courses: a great choice for new users and administrators, or as a refresher for existing users.
Instructor-led training provides practical, hands-on instruction that allows you and your team to hit the ground running as soon as the course is completed.
If you’re a BlueCat partner, we can teach you to uncover value drivers, guide conversations at all levels about strategic initiatives, and upsell advanced capabilities.
