Our expert staff deliver robust trainings providing your team the tools it needs to manage your directories. Depending on the training we may be able to offer remote or onsite trainings. Every training package comes with documentation.

Everyone in the class felt our trainer was technically brilliant, that her understanding of OpenLDAP was impressive and that her knowledge was immensely valuable. It’s difficult to describe how quickly she established credibility with our technical resources.  I can say that we’re glad we picked Symas and we’re incredibly happy with the LDAP class.
