WSO2 Training & Certification

Open source is a way of living. One that’s all about freedom, flexibility and options. At the same time, the endless possibilities can be overwhelming. If you want to start using WSO2 or use your WSO2 products to their full potential, we have one word for you: WSO2 training!

wso2 training by Yenlo

A first class training

In our WSO2 trainings, we take the WSO2 learning materials as a starting point. Then, we top it with our own expertise and real-life customer cases, so you get the best of both worlds. Our lecturers are selected based on knowledge and teaching skills, to make your training days highly informative but pleasant. We offer private WSO2 training at your company, public classroom trainings and online classroom training.

Qualified lecturers

Training on WSO2 products provided by Yenlo have been carefully constructed by WSO2 and the WSO2 Community and are only carried out by qualified Yenlo lecturers. All training materials, such as documentation, reference sources, presentations and hand-on labs are developed or carefully selected by Yenlo based on our years of experience and real-life customers cases.

WSO2 Community and Events

The open source philosophy is all about sharing, and that’s exactly what we do. We host the worldwide WSO2 community so that every WSO2 user has a place to go and discuss WSO2 related topics. On the platform, people can share codes, ideas, solutions and best practices and ask questions. We organize community events on a regular basis, that you can attend for free.

WSO2 Aftercare Program

We all know training is just a starting point. Your business is out there in the real world, and you will run into problems eventually. We get that. This is why we started the WSO2 Aftercare Program. A service that does exactly that: taking care of all the real-life WSO2 related issues you come across after you’ve left the classroom.

  • A private online session of 4 hours every 3 months
  • A private WSO2 Development Support package of 20 hours
  • 2 free public training days of choice to expand your knowledge

The WSO2 Training Aftercare program starts right after your first training and takes one year. In this year, we’ll upskill and update you on the latest WSO2 products and features. Skills are your biggest asset, and they should be worked on!

Yenlo and WSO2 Certification

When you’ve successfully completed one of our trainings, you can take the Yenlo exam and when you pass you receive an official certificate that proves your WSO2 skills. This means you’re ready to start gaining experience in the outside world by working with WSO2 products within your own company.

When you have both skills and experience, you can start your WSO2 certificate program via WSO2. This may sound like a long journey, but when you put your mind to it, time flies and you’ll be a WSO2 expert before you know it. In the meantime, our experts are more than happy to answer all of your questions.

Frequently asked questions

Where does the training take place?

The training can take place at Yenlo’s headquarters in Schiphol-Rijk (Amsterdam) or on site at a client when there is a large enough group of people. In COVID times we offer training online. 

How long is the training?

The regular training (classroom) ranges from one day to multiple days, depending on the product and type of training (e.g., fundamentals / advanced). Online trainings are always multiday.

Can I have customized training?

Custom training is possible, however this will be priced differently since we need to change the standard training material. Please contact us if you have questions about custom training.

What is the difference between online training and classroom training?

Classroom training is a whole day or multiple days with the trainer in a physical location. The trainer helps you directly when you have questions and of course explains the theory.
The online training is conducted completely online and is a slimmed down version of the regular training to make it manageable for people to do it on their own. 

In an online training setting, you will have a morning session where we explain and discuss theory. The afternoon is spent on your own, in the virtual environment, with help from the trainer via Teams or other communication tools.

What kind of computer do I need for the training?

The computer (e.g., a PC) should be able to run NoMachine and be able to make a connection to our training environment. Several ports and internet access need to be open / available since everything is done in the cloud. The PC should ideally be running Windows. 

Note: In case of an internet connection not being available, we could revert to a local installation. Meaning that you install the environment on your local pc and work from there. To be able to install the ‘no machine software’, as well as the port openings, you need to have administrative rights.

What kind of operating system will we be running in the training environment?

We will be running a CentOS 7 Linux environment running on an Amazon with two cores and eight gigabytes of memory. This should be enough for the training in general.

Do I need Linux knowledge and capabilities to work with the environment?

Linux and knowledge of Linux is handy. However, within the training, the number of specific Linux commands that we are going to use, will be limited to some very simple commands that are also familiar for Windows users. Like for instance, moving within a directory structure with CD, and starting the scripts from WSO2 using the command line tool. 

I am not a developer, would I be able to follow the training for developers? (Either fundamentals or advanced)

You do not necessarily need to be a developer to attend the training and to be able to finish the training. The training often focuses more on configuration than on typical coding. In other words, most of the stuff that you are doing, will be done by clicking and typing. 

I am not familiar with the concept of message mediation, message transformation or concepts like the Enterprise Service Bus (ESB). Does this mean I would not be able to complete training?

No, knowledge of an enterprise service bus is something that is handy. But it is not a prerequisite. If you are not familiar with the concepts that are typically associated with connecting systems, you can always have a discussion with our training department / our trainer, to see if you can attend the training.

In some cases, we can give you some reading material. This is to improve your knowledge before the training. 

Having said that, we have had project managers, with almost no development experience or knowledge of the concepts of the enterprise service bus, and they were able to complete the training.

Is the training difficult?

Whenever you are learning something new, it is going to be a challenge for your mind. With that, we mean that you are going to learn new concepts, new interfaces, new tools. This will make the training require energy, but the training will be manageable. 

However, it is very common to be overloaded with information at the end of the day, that is why the training instances are often just shut down at night because of the need to rest for your mind, to be able to absorb the training material in a better way.

Will I be an expert after the training?

One of the most important things that we stress is that Rome was not built in one day. The training course that you will embark on will be the start of a journey as a developer or configurator of WSO2 products. Do not expect every aspect, every detail to be crystal clear from the first moment. It is very common to only have the pieces of the puzzle fall into place after some time, or some weeks. So, no. You will not be an instant expert.

How can I best prepare for a training like this?

The best way to prepare is to get a good night’s rest. Make sure that you read the prerequisites of the training material. And furthermore, have an open mind as to the things that you are about to learn.

Can I do the labs afterwards, again, or are they tied to the environment?

Most of the labs can be done on your own computer. During the training you will have the training material online (confluence environment), after the training the materials and training environment will not be available anymore. 

Can I make a copy of the training labs and give them to my colleagues?

No, it is not allowed. The training material is the intellectual property of Yenlo and may not be photocopied or duplicated in any form or shape.

What happens if I have questions during the training?

During the training you can always ask the trainer, directly in a classroom setting or using digital communication channels like Teams, WhatsApp, email when you have a question when doing the labs / homework. 

Can I get extra training materials?

For the API Manager and the Enterprise Integrator, there are advanced courses that will deepen your knowledge with regard to the two products. For Identity Server, an advanced course is under construction.

What are the languages in which the training is available?

The training material, as well as the training, is given in English. However, the training can be given in Dutch or German as well. All materials will be in English, the explanation will be in either English, German or Dutch when there is a homogenous group, i.e. all speakers are either German or Dutch, and they agree to the change of language.

When there is a mixed group of students, we will revert to the common spoken language, English.
