ITS Training Services is committed to providing Penn State’s IT Professionals with the technical training they need. Here are some of the upcoming IT Pro training opportunities, including IT Pro Roundtables, vendor training sessions, and more.
Bringing in vendor training? We can help.
If your unit is planning on bringing a specific vendor training course to the University, we can coordinate the space for you, negotiate the contract with the vendor, and use our vendor relationships and ability to aggregate demand across a larger University audience to help bring down the price for you. Request vendor training and let us help you get the vendor training you need as quickly, easily, and at as low a cost as possible!
Upcoming Training Opportunities
No vendor training is scheduled at this time.
Use a Discount Voucher to Get a Great Price on Training
In addition to scheduling courses, IT Training Services offers special discount vouchers to IT Professionals for both Learning Tree courses and CompTIA exams. The CompTIA vouchers allow you to take a number of IT professional certification exams for very low prices, while the Learning Tree vouchers let you take one of their training courses at a Learning Tree training center or online via Learning Tree’s AnyWare program. You can use one of these vouches to take a course for only $1900 when the government price for a 5-day course is roughly $2600. It’s a discount that you just can’t beat! In order to find out more about about how to use these great vouchers, visit our IT Professional Voucher page and log in with your Penn State Access Account ID and password. Questions? Contact us!
Important Information about ITIL Test Retakes and Professional Development Units
Staff members who have taken an ITIL Lifecycle course provided by ProPoint solutions are able to retake the ITIL Lifecycle certification exam if they do not pass the first time. In order to set up a retake exam by ProPoint, the staff member must contact ITS Training Services within 30 days of his or her first exam.
Staff members who take an ITIL course through ProPoint can also earn Professional Development Units (PDUs) toward Project Management Institute (PMI) certification. Staff members wanting to earn PDUs for a Lifecycle class should contact Ken for details at firstname.lastname@example.org. Foundation class students desiring PDUs should simply fill out the PMI petition form stating that they have attended an accredited ITIL training course (location and dates) and attach a digital image of the Certificate of Completion they received from ProPoint at the end of the class.
Cancellation Policy for Vendor Training Sessions
Registration is complete when you enter your budget and fund number in the electronic registration system and click the Register button. You will receive a confirmation email after completing your registration. You may cancel your registration for a training session until twelve business days before the start date of the training in order to avoid being billed (unless otherwise noted in the class course description). You will be billed for the session if you cancel your registration within the twelve-business-day period preceding the training session or if you (or a substitute from your department) fail to show up for the training without having canceled your registration within the required timeframe. Refunds are not issued for these training sessions. ITS Training Services reserves the right to cancel any session due to low registration numbers. Email notices will be sent to each registrant if a session is canceled.
