Over the past decade, these groups have contracted Skyline-ATS to develop numerous certified classes, for public open enrollment and private, end-user specific audiences. The classes we have developed span the entirety of Cisco technologies, disciplines and formats, including: Cisco Unified Communication, Contact Center Express, Security, Storage, Data Center, Wireless, Route / Switch and Cisco 3rd Party technologies. 

Skyline-ATS Course Development Advantage:

No other Cisco Learning Solutions Partner can offer the following:

  • Professionally trained course developers who focus, solely, on Cisco products, yet have a broad range of internetworking skills and knowledge base.
  • Our developers have "hands on experience" implementing Cisco hardware and providing real-world solutions, to corporate clientele.
  • Developers who not only author Cisco courses, but maintain leading-edge skills by delivering Cisco Instructor-led classes, directly, to a wide customer base, which enables close interaction with customers supporting production applications.

Skyline-ATS provides tremendous value-add for all Cisco-based networking education. From the depth and expertise of our instructors, to the quality of our labs, we provide the finest training available.

Our Instructors

  • Chosen by Cisco to develop and exclusively deliver the United States’ ACCELERATE Voice Training Program - For this four-week, in-depth program, we were tasked with quickly bringing Cisco Systems Engineers up to speed on new, complex voice technologies.
  • Possess considerable depth and knowledge in all aspects of Cisco Advanced Technology products, as well as all aspects of data networking - Our personnel average over 15 years of experience delivering Cisco solutions, and even more for data networking technologies.
