Need VMware Training?

Did you know that VMware vSphere 6 Small Business Essentials Plus (SBE+) is the most popular vSphere license sold based on the number of licenses purchased. And, that VMware vSphere Standard Edition (Standard) licenses provide (almost) the same set of vSphere features in a more scalable licensing package? Despite this fact, VMware does not offer training specifically tailored to the needs of this large customer base. Instead, VMware offers a one-size-fits-all course (vSphere 6 Install, Configure, Manage) that is not only very expensive (over $4,000USD for 5 days), but it teaches features and capabilities that are not available to SBE+ and Standard customers. Why pay high prices for training that covers features and functions you are not licensed to use?

Now, with ESXLab, you get a complete video-on-demand training (with optional course books and remote lab rentals) that covers the major features of your vSphere licenses. With video-on-demand, you train on your schedule... for a lot less.


What Do I Get?

ESXLab is pleased to offer VMware vSphere 6 training specifically tailored to vSphere 6 SBE+ and vSphere 6 Standard customers. This class bundle gives you 14 chapters of training offering you over 22hrs of recorded lectures that contains all the information you need to install, configure, administer and troubleshoot all of the major features offered by your vSphere 6 license. You get unlimited access to this course with no expiry date and no time limit.

This class bundle gives you:

  • 14 chapters of training offering you over 22 hours of recorded lectures - the equivalent of over 5 days of normal instructor led classroom training
  • All the information you need to install, configure, administer and troubleshoot all of the major features offered by your vSphere 6 license.
  • Training on higher end features like High Availability clusters, vSphere Replication, VM Backup and more
  • Unlimited access to these course topics with no expiry date and no time limit
  • Optional access to the full course Study / Lab Guide (769 pages of slides and notes) that includes all slides and slide notes and detailed how-to instructions to install, configure and use all major vSphere 6 features
  • Optional access to a full, remote hands-on lab environment so you can work through practical, detailed labs to build your familiarity and experience using vSphere 6
  • Optional lab access includes full support during the length of your lab rental

Feedback on ESXLab Training

Below is some of the unsolicited feedback we have received on ESXlab VMware vSphere training...


One of my friends showed me your vSphere 6 VMotion lecture. I am amazed with the level of detail you provided. I've seen PluralSight.com and CBTnuggets.com's training and yours is the most informative.

Rajesh Sood - Sr. System Analyst


ESXLab is outstanding. Their platform isn't a contrived lab build. They gave us access to a Win 2008R2 Server and to a complete lab environment. They also supply a setup manual, lab manual, student guide (that could easily replace a Sybex book) and responsive help desk for instructors. This is a complete solution. I'd use it in the future for this class without reservation."

Wanted to say thank you for teaching our vSphere class. I have had good and bad experiences with training, so I always go into these classes hoping they will be worth it. Your class definitely was. I learned quite a bit and will apply it immediately to my current VMware environment. And the new VMware environment I am working on soon will benefit even more.

K. Etter - Architect at MSKTD & Associates


Instructor was smart, patient, and well organized. He kept the class interesting and kept the students engaged and participate. He is one of the very best instructors I have encountered in my 18 years in HPE.

I just wanted to thank you for teaching a great class. I got a lot out of it and have already put many of the things I learned to use.We had to upgrade our environment and your class made that much easier. It was wonderful having the hands-on lab experience before our upgrade so that we could practice in a safe setting. I also passed the ECVS certification exam. The course did a great job in preparing me. I feel that the exam is very relevant to our real world challenges.

Get VMware vSphere & View Training... for less!

What do you do if you need to learn VMware but can't afford the $4,000 - $6,000 charged for authorized training; or you can't find a training event that works with your schedule? Now, you can enroll in my equivalent VMware vSphere 6 and Horizon View video-on-demand training... for less.

I have created courses that together offer over 36 hours of VMware vSphere 6 lectures (about 8 days of instructor lead training at 4hrs lecture per day normally offered in live instructor led training). With Video-On-Demand training, I can provide more insight and detail, without the time constraints that a normal instructor led training class would impose. My goal is to give you a similar or better training experience than classroom training - at about 10% of the cost.

Run This Class At Your Office

ESXLab maintains a pool of high-scoring, experienced instructors who would be glad to lead this event at your place of work. If you have 5 or more people and would like to run live instructor led (distance or on-site) training, please contact me for a quote.

About Me

I am an Information Technology consultant / trainer with over 25 years of experience in system administration, networking, security, infrastructure and security.

I worked for 10 years as a UNIX programmer / consultant before moving to Linux in 1995. I started working with VMware products in 2001 and decided to focus exclusively on VMware in 2004. I earned my first VMware Certified Professional (VCP) designation on ESX 2.0 in 2004 (VCP #: 993). I have also earned VCP in ESX 3, and in vSphere 4 and 5.

My VMware Work Experience

  • I have been providing VMware consulting and training for more than 12 years. I have lead literally hundreds of classes and taught thousands of people how to use VMware. I teach both introductory and advanced VMware classes.
  • I worked for VMware as a senior contract VMware Certified Instructor (VCI) and consultant for almost 5 years. One of my regular duties was to help mentor new VCI's - helping them prepare for and successfully deliver vSphere classes.
  • After leaving VMware, I launched my own training business focused on VMware virtualization in 2008. In 2013, VMware called me back to help them ramp up support services for the upcoming vSphere 5.1 product launch.
  • Prior to VMware, I worked as a contract consultant / trainer for RedHat (I hold RHCE, RHCI and RHCX), Global Knowledge, Learning Tree and many other training and consulting companies.


I hold a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science and Math from the University of Toronto. I also hold numerous industry certifications including VMware Certified Professional on VMware Infrastructure 2 & 3 and vSphere 4 & 5 (ret.), VMware Certified Instructor (ret.), RedHat Certified Engineer (RHCE), RedHat Certified Instructor (RHCI) and RedHat Certified Examiner (RHCX) as well as certifications from LPI, HP, SCO and others.

I hope to see you in one of my VMware classes very soon... If you have questions, please contact me directly.
