VMware Lab Connect

VMW-LGO-PARTNER-PREMIER-TRAINING-CENTRE-UK-KVMware Lab Connect™ takes learning to the next level by offering real-world lab scenarios and best practices which are easily accessed outside the traditional classroom.

Studies show that hands-on practice improves the learning experience, with up to 75% of information retained. VMware Lab Connect™ provides on-demand access to a lab environment where users can:

  • Practice lab scenarios at a time of their choosing, 24/7;
  • Explore features more deeply than allowed during class time; 
  • Practice implementing VMware product functionality in a safe, non-production environment.

Access to this new web-based lab environment can be purchased together with selected coruses or, as a stand-alone product*. You will be given 30 days from when you register for the lab or 30 hours of active use (defined as non-idle time), which ever expires first.  

See list of VMware Lab Connect offerings below, at a cost of £300+ VAT each.
