Please note: Effective August 3rd 2018 this course has been renamed from 'Citrix NetScaler 12.x Advanced Topics - Management and Optimization' to 'Citrix ADC Advanced Concepts - Management and Optimization'. Course content remains the same.

Master the deployment and usage of Citrix Application Delivery Management with this two-day management and optimization course. You’ll gain the skills needed to automate and manage network services for scale out of application architectures, and to optimize Citrix ADC-managed application delivery traffic. The curriculum focuses on centrally managing multiple Citrix ADC platforms, orchestrating configuration changes, reporting on transactions, visualizing infrastructure and planning infrastructure expansion. You will also learn how to implement Citrix ADC features, including caching, frontend optimization, Citrix ADC web logging and TCP/HTTP optimization, to optimize traffic managed by your Citrix networking environment.

Is this course for me?
This course is designed for students with previous Citrix ADC experience, and best suited for individuals who will be deploying Citrix Application Delivery Management to administer a Citrix Networking environment or optimize Citrix ADC-managed application delivery traffic.

Citrix course materials are only available to delegates in e-courseware format. Delegates will be provided with instructions on how to access their e-courseware on day one of the event. Those delegates who are attending via either virtual or extended classroom will be required to provide either three monitors (to view courseware, labs and instructor demos simultaneously) or two monitors and a mobile device. Delegates will be required to have an active TCC (Training.Citrix.com) account in order to access course materials and labs.

Please set up Your TCC account up in advance of the course using the following link:

Please note: It is highly recommended that the delegate uses a personal email address (rather than company email) to set up their TCC account. If you do not wish to reference your company name when setting up your TCC account we recommend you use 'EDUCALC' as reference.

Should you encounter any issues in setting up your TCC account please ensure that you raise this directly with Citrix in advance of your event by visiting http://training.citrix.com then on the home page click, Help, then select Classroom Support, and submit a Critical or High priority request notifying Citrix of the course start date.
