FAQs:

 

What are the different types of learning activities I can enroll in?

There are four types of learning activities you can enroll in:

  • Instructor Led Courses: Learning activities led by a live instructor. This includes both classroom instructor-led training (ILT) and virtual training (VILT). 
  • Self-Paced Courses: These learning activities are taken online at your own pace and include video tutorials, demonstrations, and simulations. Courses contain a pre-defined group of topics to be taken in sequence.
  • Tracks: Represent a series of recommended learning activities to support you in performing the duties associated with your role.
  • Certification Exams: Provide formal recognition that you have demonstrated knowledge and proficiency to perform specific jobs or tasks related to AppDynamics.

 

How can I search for a course?

To search for a course, first go to learn.appdynamics.com and log in to your subscription. Training is organized into role-based learning tracks which highlight the most important courses for your specific job: Implementer, Administrator, Performance Analyst, and Developer.

 

You can also search for individual courses using the free text field or filter the course catalog by training type, role, technology, product/feature, and activity.

 

I have a subscription. Where can I register for courses?  

Once you’ve registered for University following the steps outlined here, you can log in and access content at https://learn.appdynamics.com. Courses will be denoted with a Self Paced or Instructor-led label. Instructor-led courses are available with a Premium subscription.
