N4 Advanced Administration

Course Description

This course is designed specifically for individuals responsible for administering the SPARCS N4 TOS within the terminal. This is not an operations course. This course also does not include training on N4 APIs, extensions, or groovy code. Students that require that training should attend an N4 Extensions Workshop.

This 5 day course is intended for the serious terminal operating system user or IT manager. In this course, students will work with an industry expert instructor to cover the advanced administrative functions of the N4 TOS, including Gate Configuration, Advanced Report Writing, Advanced Security, EDI Mapping, and SPARCS Administration and Configuration. Through lecture and hands-on exercises, students will emerge from the course with a good working knowledge of how to administrate the N4 system.
