Citrix NetScaler Essentials and Traffic Management (CNS-220)

Course Description Schedule Course Outline

Course Overview

Designed for students with little or no previous NetScaler experience, this course is best suited for individuals who will be deploying or managing NetScaler environments.

What’s New? This course has been completely redeveloped and improves upon its predecessor CNS-205: Citrix Citrix NetScaler Essentials and Networking in the following ways:

  • Improved course structure and flow to focus on Citrix NetScaler Essentials for the first three days, and Citrix Traffic Management for the remaining two days.
  • New lab environment redesigned and built for enhanced performance.
  • Incorporated enhancements based on feedback gathered over the last year.
  • New content introduced throughout the course.

This course is based on the Citrix NetScaler 11 product, but the skills and fundamental concepts learned are common to earlier product versions.

Students looking to expand their knowledge around NetScaler Gateway functionality should take CNS-222 (Citrix NetScaler Essentials and Unified Gateway) instead of this class.
