Training & Certification
Knowledge is power.
Aegis understands that a system deployment can only be successful if the customer end users have a deep understanding of how to properly use the software.
An effective training and certification program must:
- Objectively measure how well the trainee learned the system (exams)
- Allow users to focus on content areas directly applicable to their job functions
- Permit users to proceed through the program at their own pace
- Contain options for how and where courses are taken
- Keep users up-to-date with the latest features and functions as the product evolves
- Give Managers and Stakeholders assurances that their investment in Aegis software is being maximized
The FactoryLogix University program accomplishes all of these goals and more with a comprehensive offering of instructor-led and self-guided certification courses. Here are some of the highlights of the program:
Who better to train users on Aegis software than Aegis trainers? Our highly-qualified training staff are available to deliver our courses at your facility, at one of our corporate training centers, or over the internet. In all cases, the instructor will administer and grade the certification exams throughout the sessions and at the end of the course. Utilizing our direct staff allows for customization of the curriculum and flexibility of course hours while providing plenty of opportunities for interaction and questions.
For customers who wish to learn at their own pace or need a low-cost training option, Aegis offers an online library of videos to learn the software and prepare for online exams. Customers under a valid annual service maintenance contract may watch the videos as often / as many times as they like, then register to take exams through our online training portal. The videos remain available to all customers as reference and refreshers.
Aegis certifications are tied to product version. Our exams will be updated with each minor version release of our software. A minor version release occurs every 9 – 12 months and is denoted by the version’s second octet. (Example: 8.3.X to 8.4.X is a minor release). This is to ensure that users remain current on new functions/features/changes in the software.
The certification program and courses are broken down such that users can focus in on content directly applicable to what they need to do their jobs.
