Learn Citrix products with hands-on training


Get a jump on evaluating and understanding Citrix products and solutions—before they are released—at the Summit hands-on learning labs. These instructor-led and self-paced labs are organized around practical use case scenarios and are an ideal way to learn best practices for implementation and deployment.

Instructor-led Learning Labs

Learn about Citrix technologies directly from Citrix experts in the Instructor-led Learning Labs, designed for collaborative engagement with the instructor and participants. Ask questions relevant to your environment and engage in discussions on the finer points of new Citrix solutions. This pre-event activity is held on Sunday, to allow you to focus on learning about new products and solutions before the main Summit activities officially begin on Monday. Your conference pass includes two Instructor-led Learning Labs. Be sure to arrive at Summit early to take advantage of this opportunity! Seating is limited so register early. Instructor-led Learning Labs are BYOD – bring your own Windows or Mac laptop and power cord (See system requirements below). We provide external monitors, so be sure to bring your HDMI, VGA or DVI adapter if your computer doesn't have a port for these connections.

Self-paced Learning Labs

Learn about Citrix products and solutions at your own pace in the Self-paced Learning Labs. Self-paced Learning Labs feature the latest computer-based training on the newest Citrix products and solutions. In addition to the new courses, you can browse and take courses from the full catalog of Citrix enablement training. These labs are available Monday and Tuesday. No scheduling is required. Simply come in and out of the labs at your convenience between breakout sessions. You can take or retake as many self-paced labs as you'd like. 

An overview course allows you to preview the training so you can choose the courses most relevant to you. Self-paced Learning Labs are BYOD – bring your own Windows or Mac laptop and power cord (See system requirements below).
