ACE:L4 includes numerous hands-on labs. At the time of purchase, you will have numerous options for lab time with both the instructor-led and self-study packages. Most packages include 3-weeks of lab time. For the instructor-led courses, this includes the week of the course as well as two additional weeks to work on labs on your own. Every engineer is given their own dedicated environment and will not be required to share with others. The labs are built on the latest released vEOS and CloudVision codes and deployed in an AWS environment. This allows you to connect from anywhere and anytime. This is actual code and not simulators.
