This expert-level course is an immersive five-day assessment-based bootcamp used to give attendees the opportunity to cement their knowledge in working with the Splunk core platform effectively and at-scale using Professional Services (PS) best-practice techniques. This course represents a significant step-up in difficulty versus earlier courses in a Splunk consultant’s learning path. Passing the course is only possible if the required preparation and practice is put into place before attending.

In-person (or virtual) instructor-led training will cover how to make Splunk Enterprise run efficiently in large clustered environments and will give a more in-depth understanding of the inner-workings of Splunk.

Attendees will apply best-practice techniques in an attempt to complete a number of practical assessment labs (individually — with no peer and minimal instructor technical assistance). These labs pose various technical challenges in simulated distributed customer environments.

To be successful during the assessed labs, candidates will need to demonstrate a masterful grasp on how to manage configuration at scale, troubleshoot problems, perform environment discovery, and ultimately understand what is necessary to make Splunk Customers successful, all under time pressure. This includes being able to engage with customers with an instructional and collaborative PS mindset, to fully clarify requirements before planning and implementing solutions.
