Computer Requirements
The hands-on practical exercises are intensive, critical to understanding the material being taught, and required to successfully complete the class. If your computer hardware does not meet the mandatory requirements listed below, your experience in taking the class will be less than ideal and may also impact other students while the instructors take time to troubleshoot hardware and software problems.

Mandatory Operating System Requirements
Operating system. Your computer must be running Microsoft Windows 10 or macOS v10.12 or later. Make sure your operating system is fully updated prior to class.
Smartphones and tablets are prohibited.

Mandatory Software Requirements
Google Chrome. The recommended browser to launch our virtual lab environment.
Webex Meetings. Required to enter our live online training environment, Webex Training Center.
Webex Chrome Extension. Required to launch our live online training environment, Webex Training Center, and works hand-in-hand with the Webex Meetings application.

Mandatory Hardware Requirements
Dual monitors . You will need one monitor to join the online classroom, view presentations, see the instructor’s shared screen, and interact with the instructor(s). The second monitor is needed to join and complete hands-on practical exercises. Not being able to see both interfaces simultaneously will make it difficult, if not impossible to successfully complete hands-on practical exercises. Large screen monitors, trying to run the two different interfaces split screen, will NOT work. Multiple computers can also work as a substitute to having multiple monitors.
Hard-wired, high-speed Internet connection. A wireless Internet connection may be sufficient, however, a wired connection will improve latency and buffering, and will also provide better connection speeds and stability overall.
Microphone and speakers. This is an interactive, live training class and a microphone is required to interact with the instructor(s), ask questions, give answers, and provide insights to help enhance the overall class experience. We recommend a headset, headphones, or earbuds to eliminate feedback and echo when using your microphone.
