Advanced Computer Training for Virtual Server Administrators
Training for advanced Citrix certifications, such as the CCA or CCEA, requires a longer period of study and a familiarity with industry standard computer networking practices. Since Citrix virtualizes other software and operating systems, like Windows and Linux, many technical schools and computer training centers now offer the option to add Citrix administration to their roster of available learning modules. By including Citrix in course offerings, training centers can help prepare students for tech jobs that rely on virtualized software to increase security while minimizing downtime.
