Course Outline


For this advanced administrative course, you should have experience performing basic CUCM administrative tasks, including IP Phone moves, adds and changes and as well have some familiarity with the CUCM Administrative GUI. An understanding of router configuration is not needed.

ACUCW1 - Administering Cisco Unified Communications Workspace Part 1 (v12.5): Basic Administration for Multisite Deployments
CLFNDU - Understanding Cisco Collaboration Foundations v1.0


The Global Knowledge companion course to ACUCW2 is ACUCW1. This latter course focuses on “Moves, Adds, Changes and Deletes (MACDs)” for a Cisco Collaboration Solution in a multi-site deployment. The pre-configured environment used as the starting point for ACUCW1 is created from scratch in the ACUCW2 course. These two courses together provide coverage of both multi-site deployment and administration.

Interested in some parts of ACUCW1 and ACUCW2? Contact us to discuss course customization: we can design a custom course for you covering the material you need covered in the time you have available. Taken the previous version of ACUCW1 and ACUCW2? Consider the new ACUCW Lab workshop: a whiteboard-based workshop focusing on the ACUCW1 and ACUCW2 labs.


Why Take ACUCW2 from Global Knowledge?

Global Knowledge is the only training partner offering role-based training on a real-world multi-site lab topology specifically designed for the needs of North American students. No other training partner offers a course, like ACUCW2, designed to address the needs of advanced or senior administrators in North America and specifically targeting multi-site deployments:

View the enhanced Global Knowledge real-world topology 

  • Many Cisco Collaboration Solution administrators are focused on application administration and do not configure routers: router configuration is not included in the class
  • Labs are based on real world multi-site network
  • Accompanying follow-on courses provide an excellent track for career development.

I would never take another course that starts at 11AM and goes to 9PM again. The way the course was laid out really took away from the capturing of what was presented as it was 5-6 hours of watching a screen before getting to the actual labs. There has to be a better way to lay out this particular course. In my previous course, the lectures were broken up by labs which worked out fantastic and kept you engaged in the course. There were days when in order to actually complete the labs, would go over the 9PM day end time frame. Was able to get the primary labs done, but if you want to get all the content completed, you cannot complete it in the window of this course, you will need to come back on your own time.

Wasn’t as advanced as I thought it would be. There was an issue when the day my course was the first time they used a new platform.. from adobe to something called zoom; I had to call support line cause it stated our instructor wasn’t present. Thankfully I called cause everyone online was in the adobe virtual classroom waiting for what looked like a teacher who didn’t show up for class (IT didn’t get anything resolved until 10mins after start time). I felt like he was really getting hung up on very basic knowledge for the first half of the course (talking about how to create tabs and drag formulas as an example). I completed files a few times before he was done explaining. There was a scheduled fire drill for them (roughly 30mins)that also cut into our time, which wasn’t deducted from the hour lunch break or the two, fifteen min breaks. I also really wish he touched base more on the automating workbook functions portion which we barely did. I'm happy there were/are those study guides (learning videos) and exams to take on my own time that I hope after I've had the class are still available for me to learn from.
