  • IT Engineers
  • Infrastructure and cloud engineers

Our trainers are highly qualified to make sure you get the right personal attention in training.
We provide official Zabbix training, which means you’ll be officially Zabbix certified after finishing our training.

Our services are provided worldwide, either online or in-house.

Not only do we provide Zabbix training, but also other Zabbix/IT services. Check out our main page here.


The 3 days Zabbix Certified Professional course provides information technology professionals with the knowledge and skills necessary to configure and use Zabbix proxy and distributed monitoring for your network and application monitoring needs. We also discuss a variety of advanced Zabbix topics.

This  training  program  is  intended  for  IT  administrators  and  auditors,   system  integrators,  and  other  personnel  that  deals  with  IT  infrastructure   monitoring.  No  prior  knowledge  of  Zabbix  Software  is  required,  but   all  trainees  should  have  advanced  computer  literacy  and  knowledge   of  Linux  OS.


Before attending the Professional course, it is mandatory to attended (and passed!) Zabbix Certified Specialist course and taking some time to get familiar/ comfortable.

The course will include an official Zabbix exam to obtain the “Zabbix Certified Professional” certificate.

We provide hosted trainings on scheduled dates, online training and also in-house training. If you are interested in, in-house training please contact us.
