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.

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

  • "Equipment worked! Have been to other training where the equipment didn't work. Trainer knew his stuff! Nice to have a practitioner as a trainer rather than an instructor with book knowledge only."

  • "The instructor spoke with a clarity that made it easy to follow the courseware, he was not boring and just speaking from the book."

  • "I felt the instructor was thoroughly qualified and experienced in using the product so he was able to teach very clearly and effectively and use real world examples to make the material relevant. He was patient, methodical and had a great teaching pace."

  • "I learned approaches to configuring the firewall that I would not have known without attending the class."

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