As the name implies, ILT courses are led by a Varicent expert, and offered on-site at your location, in Toronto at our head office, and virtually through video conferencing. ILT courses combine theory and hands-on practice within the Varicent solution. The interactive Demonstrations and Exercises illustrate key concepts while teaching product use, so students can apply concepts learned to their own Varicent implementations.

Contact your Customer Success Manager or to book your ILT training.

Self-Paced Virtual Training (SPV)

These courses use the same materials as our ILT classes, minus the instructor. Materials include the course Student Guide, and a training environment in which to complete the course’s hands-on activities. Students are given 24/7 access to their training environment for 30 days.
