With virtual classroom training, your global team powers success

How We Deliver Virtual Classroom Training

Virtual classroom training is for remote teams of administrators and developers who require a rigourous, hands-on, instructor-led learning experience that aligns with both real-world job performance and professional certification.

  • A virtual classroom training course runs for three consecutive sessions.

  • Each session is about 3 hours in duration.

  • A MemSQL Certified Instructor leads each virtual session. In each session, your instructor introduces new topics with live demonstrations. Topics align with specific learning objectives.

  • With each new topic, your instructor makes available the related education content and curriculum materials in your course player.

  • After the end of each session, you spend one to two hours completing student labs.

  • You and your instructor connect virtually for the duration of the course. Your instructor is available to answer question and resolve technical issues.

  • At the end of the virtual training, you take a course exam.

  • To achieve certification, you complete the course and pass the exam.

Answers to common questions

  • How does MemSQL create virtual classroom training?

    We employ the ADDIE model to design and develop our education content. We Analyze needs, Design the learning, Develop the curriculum, Implement the virtual classroom training course, and Evaluate the performance. We also employ an agile methodology for curriculum and courseware development. Based on student feedback and success, we regularly improve our virtual classroom training courses and education content.

  • Do the virtual classroom training courses align with the latest version of MemSQL?

    Yes, MemSQL virtual classroom training courses align with the most recent major and minor version of MemSQL. Because of the varying speed and cadence of maintenance releases, we are unable to update education content to support maintenance releases entirely. In other words, we deliver virtual training on the most recent major and minor version of the general availability release of MemSQL.

  • What do I need to participate in virtual classroom training?

    We run all our trainings as BYOL, Bring Your Own Laptop. Virtual classroom training requires that you simply install a WebEx meeting client. You also need to be able to SSH into an Amazon EC2 instance using a provided pem or ppk key and public IP. MemSQL supplies the pem and ppk keys, student license, and Amazon EC2 hosts that you use for student labs. Using either Chrome or Firefox, you access education content and curriculum materials for the virtual training course from a web-based, digital course player.

  • Is the certification exam separate or part of the course?

    We bundle the certification exam with the course. The exam can only be taken with the course. You can learn more about certification here.

  • How long do I have access to the course content?

    After enrollment, you can access your course for one year. Most students complete virtual training within one week.

  • Are there recordings of each session made available for virtual classroom training?

    Yes, after the end of each session, we make available the WebEx recording. After the session ends, the file is usually available within 15 minutes. Playing the file requires a WebEx Network Player. It should be noted that we are unable to guarantee the quality or completeness of a WebEx recording. When possible, we also make available a MP4 version of the WebEx recording available. MP4 files typically take up to 48 hours to be released.
