Training

Our goal is to teach and enable our clients to solve their problems without having to rely on us.

Why Choose Sun Management Training?

Our training classes are created with the goal of teaching and enabling our clients to solve their problems without having to rely on us. In short, we want to work ourselves out of a job. We believe that is our ethical calling. We welcome your participation and hope you not only learn, but pass on your knowledge to others.

Palo Alto Training Classes

Our dedication to student success and engineering excellence led Sun Management to become not only the first of four Authorized Training Centers in North America to earn Palo Alto Network’s “Elite ATC” designation in 2014 but also the first organization on the continent that is both an Elite ATC and a Palo Alto Networks Certified Professional Services Partner (CPSP). There is presently only one other organization in North America that possesses both those credentials.

Please follow the directions here on registering for a Sun Management Palo Alto Technology class.

Below are just some of the comments received from students who have attended our classes:

  • "The labs reinforce the material and serve as a great guide for later employment. The labs examples are simple enough to complete and get the concept down before trying more difficult concepts."

  • "The instructor did a very good job explaining functions of the palo alto firewall I have a much better understanding of the device. Really liked that the instructor said that we could contact him even after the class. Bill was very helpful and could tell he knew the system very well."

  • "The real world examples and analogies used by the instructor. The amount of material was significant but the instructor was superb in keeping the flow of the course moving so it was not just lecture but interactive discussion and labs."

  • "I particularly enjoyed the advanced level of knowledge the professor had. Every question asked was answered in detail with real use-case examples"

  • "When the instructor is very knowledgeable, they can move the group through the course very smoothly. Bill has a great delivery and I greatly appreciated his willingness to discuss experiences (both professional and personal) to align with the material."
