SolarWinds training from Loop1 is firmly based on practical experience and professional delivery. When not leading training classes, our instructors, all of whom are SolarWinds Certified Professionals, work on a variety of consultancy projects for clients, which has enabled them to gain a broad knowledge of the day-to-day challenges of implementing, configuring and managing SolarWinds systems of varying scopes and sizes. They bring all this considerable knowledge and experience to the classroom.
