Key Facts

Extreme Academy Live Participant Highlights

Satyend Appiah, Participant in Extreme Academy Live: Introduction to Future Networking, United Kingdom
"I started as a service desk analyst four years ago and worked my way up to become an infrastructure engineer. My goal is to one day specialize in networking, and Extreme Academy is helping me achieve that goal. It has been a highly insightful, informative course and I have no doubt this knowledge and content will help me excel in my future career."

Steve Burgess, Participant in Extreme Academy Live: Introduction to Future Networking, United States
"I love working with technology, so wherever I work I have asked to handle the networks. I am currently a systems administrator because I was the only one who volunteered! This class has been wonderful and has helped me refresh my foundational knowledge. I now understand why certain tasks are necessary, not just how to do them."

Chad Kietzman, Participant in Extreme Academy Live: Building Robust and Secure Wireless Networks, United States
"We are using Extreme Academy to build the bench in our technology department. Extreme Academy is giving my team the foundation to understand IT basics and helps me better explain in detail how our network works. We are all gaining knowledge and using it to build a better network and user experience."

Executive Perspective

Ed Meyercord, President and Chief Executive Officer, Extreme Networks
"In the highly competitive IT industry, having non-technical business knowledge in addition to technical skill is a hugely valuable differentiator. These skills are often learned through experience, but Extreme Academy allows us to give aspiring IT professionals insider knowledge and insights before they have to learn on the job. Extreme is proud to provide an accessible introduction to the technology industry and key skills for an even wider audience as we continue to expand Extreme Academy and inspire the next generation of technology leaders."
