Synopsys Instructor-Led Training courses are developed and taught by experts at the forefront of the software security field. Instructors are certified security professionals who have hands-on experience working directly with clients on their security challenges.
Organizations can choose traditional instructor-led training in which instructors travel to the location of the client’s choice. Geared to engage the students through group discussion and interactive hands-on labs that simulate real-world environments, the curriculum is designed to best complement the needs, interests, and experience level of the participants.
For organizations with a distributed workforce, participants can avoid travel and time away from the office using Synopsys Virtual Instructor-Led Training. A cost conscious alternative for supporting employees’ professional development, Synopsys virtual training is delivered in short sessions to optimize participant engagement, and presented over consecutive working days or on a weekly basis, depending on the team’s preference.
“For Citi, virtual training wasn’t all that much of a stretch,” said Maides. “We already did many things virtually. In such a large organization, it isn’t unusual for team members to be scattered geographically. Few of us have all our teammates at the same location. Our application staff was a bit uncomfortable with extending the virtual concept to training at first; they were used to being in the same room with an instructor. So we spent time working on making sure the participants felt as engaged as if it were an in-person classroom. That’s what Synopsys helped bring to the table for Citi. They walked us through the training, ran test training sessions, and developed how we could do breakout sessions and use whiteboards virtually.”
