    Solaris Web-based Training

    SoftTech provides instructor-led, Web-based training. It is the next best thing to traveling to our training center. You will receive the same live interaction, without the travel, and at a substantial savings over an onsite course.

    With this self-study program, you will receive the same training materials that we use in our classroom course and we meet on-line in our virtual classroom twice per week at a time that's convenient for you.

    At our Virtual Training Center you will meet on-line with your instructor and a maximum of four other students. You will get the same course we teach in the classroom - with a live instructor, an active PowerPoint presentation, live demonstrations, and plenty of opportunity to "raise your hand" and ask questions.

    You will be able to interact with other students, while listening to their comments, questions, and instructor's answers. You will also be able to contact your instructor at anytime throughout the duration of the course.

    This course provides 30 days of access to our E-Labs at no additional charge. Your labs can be completed online by logging into our network of Sun Ultras over the Internet. You will be given your own system to work on with full administrator privileges to practice what you've learned.
