Training, Certification Available with Ingate & The SIP School

By Steve Anderson
Contributing SIP Trunking Report Writer

Ingate Systems (News - Alert), along with The SIP School recently  joined together to bring out a new line of training and certification courses, focusing on the Ingate Enterprise Session Border Controller and the Ingate SIParator Enterprise Session Border Controller. The courses will not only focus on generic topics around SIP, but will also delve into specific topics and products, as well as a full certification in managing and configuring the SIParator line.

The training can be found online at The SIP School's website, and is specifically geared to be a cost-effective alternative to more costly training courses while still offering up the level of knowledge required to get the most out of the E-SBC products that Ingate offers, as well as less specific, but no less vital, material on SIP in general. Included in the coursework are sections on setting up and operating Ingate products, as well as the SIParator certification course via the SSCA--SIP School Certified Associate--training program.

Ingate Systems president, Steven Johnson, described the courses as not necessarily meant to "...replace in-person training", but as being "...a cost-effective alternative for smaller businesses or for those who need a refresher course." He further elaborated: "The SIP School delivers a polished presentation for the students to review before taking the certification test. It is the perfect vehicle for offering this advanced online training."

The successful use of online training courses has provided a lot of value for a lot of people in the past. Used extensively by a variety of corporations, it not only allows a way for employees to get up to speed on the latest technology, but does so in a way that's minimally disruptive to a standard work day. An online training course allows employees to complete training on premises, where they're still available to do regular work, though possibly just a bit less of it on a training day. A less than nominal day beats a completely lost day every time, so it's not surprising to see more companies use online training materials to supplant real-time training methods.

It's seldom a complete replacement, of course, but for those getting started, those who can't afford full personal training, or those who have some experience in what they're doing but simply need that little extra reminder, an online training course like those offered by Ingate and The SIP School can be just the thing to get an organization started, or at least over the hump.
