Instructor-led Classes and Scheduling
These courses are led by an OSIsoft instructor and are taught either in a training center or virtually.
When does class start? How long is the class day?
All OSIsoft classes begin promptly at 8:30 a.m. in the local time zone. Although some days may finish earlier, expect the day of learning to end around 4:30 p.m. The actual length of the class is more determined by the class participation. If there is a lot of interaction and discussion, the class may run longer.
Special Note: In the Frankfurt office the start time on the first day is always 9:00 a.m. The remaining days are the normal 8:30 am. The class will take short breaks throughout the day and a one hour break each day for lunch.
When does class end on the last day? What if I have to leave early?
Most of the OSIsoft courses have a small period of time designed into the end of the last day to reinforce the week's learning and to allow students to solidify their understanding of the material. Many customers report this as some of the most valuable time spent in class. We do not recommend an early departure.
What do I need to bring to class?
We provide everything you will need for the instruction - a capable computer, instruction materials, even supplies for note-taking and some snacks. Our learning centers and most regional learning sites also have student computers with internet capability so that you can check your web-based e-mail from the classroom. You may bring your notebook computer and/or cellular phone, but please do not distract others with your computer and please do not talk on the mobile phone in the classroom. At OSIsoft and in our classes you will be comfortable in the most casual office/business clothing. Jeans, tennis shoes, t-shirts are fine.
The class I want to register for is not on the schedule anymore. What happened?
The class is full or it was cancelled. Classes are most often cancelled due to low enrollment. Classes are evaluated a little more than two weeks before the start date to see if the enrollment is at the required level.
How do I know if I have been successfully registered in the class I want to attend?
Upon completion of the registration or cancellation process you should receive an e-mail notification from us. If you have not received a notification e-mail, contact email@example.com. You may have to ask your IT department not to block e-mails from our domain.
I sent in a Purchase Order (PO) for a course. Am I registered?
No, you are not. Each person who wants to take the course must register on the web site. Sending in the PO will not register a person for a seat in the class.
How do OSIsoft classes qualify for Continuing Education Units (CEUs)?
College and recognized "continuing education" courses virtually always qualify. Correspondence, televised, videotaped, or web-delivered courses may qualify. Attending (or presenting) professional seminars or workshops, or making presentations at professional or technical conferences may also qualify. OSIsoft learning is not an accredited program. Therefore, classroom instruction may or may not apply to a person’s Continuing Education Credit requirement. Please consult your licensing entity to determine whether OSIsoft classroom instruction qualifies for Continuing Education Credits.
Each class description page contains the entry, "This class provides xx classroom hours of instruction." We use 6.5 hours per day of instruction.
OSIsoft Learning Group is preparing documentation to obtain IACET accreditation to offer Continuing Education Units (CEUs). Upon successful completion of IACET assessment, the course description will be updated with CEUs instead of classroom instruction hours.
