Unidesk Training FAQ

Why should I buy Unidesk Training?

Over the last 6 months we’ve had our top Solution Architects (Ron Oglesby and Jeff Pitsch) work alongside our dedicated training manager to build what we think is world-class software training. Over 2,000 man hours have gone into the content, design, and implementation of our Training.

Key reasons to purchase Unidesk Training include:

  • As a manager, you want to give your staff the resources to be successful.
  • As an architect, you want to get more of your team trained on Unidesk so you can offload day-to-day management responsibilities.
  • As an administrator, you want a deeper understanding of all that is possible with Unidesk to improve your day-to-day performance. Not only will you understand the how (features), but the training will also address the why (concepts of layering).
  • If you wear all three hats, all benefits above apply!

How is Unidesk Training different than the current Unidesk Learning Center?

Our Unidesk Learning Center is designed to streamline the process of getting Unidesk installed, creating layers, and deploying your first desktops. Our new Unidesk Training is a much more in-depth, structured learning including self-paced courses, interactive simulations, quizzes to test understanding, and the ability to track your progress.

How long does Training take to complete?

Unidesk Training is broken out into three series: Operator, Administrator, and Advanced. Run-time for the Operators series is around 3.5 hours, the Administrator series is 6 hours, and the Advanced series is 4.5 hours. Since the training is self-paced and interactive, it will take slightly longer to complete each series.

How often is Training updated?

We have a dedicated team assigned to keeping our Training up-to-date based on the latest releases of Unidesk. This might include new features in Unidesk as well as new platforms that Unidesk supports.

Do I automatically receive Training updates?

Yes. If a new course is added or a course is updated, you will automatically receive the updates as long as you have an active Unidesk Training license.

How is Training priced?

Unidesk Training is priced per named user. Pricing starts at $1,250/year per license.

If there is turnover, can Training licenses be reassigned?

Yes. We realize that IT organizations are agile and resources change quickly. After 90 days, a license of Unidesk Training can be reassigned to another employee at your organization.
