Prerequisites

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:

https://www.citrix.com/welcome/create-account/create-account-form.html

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.

Technical Pre-requisites:

This course requires little to no previous experience with the 7.x version of the platform; however, Citrix recommends completing the free XenApp and XenDesktop Introduction bundle at eLearning.citrix.com. Previous knowledge of legacy versions of XenApp or XenDesktop is also beneficial ,due to the faster pace of this course. For a less intensive training yet thorough training, Citrix recommends starting with the CXD-210 XenApp and XenDesktop 7.1x Administration course.
