Sematext Solr & Elasticsearch Training

Hands-on, interactive training taught by experts for beginners and experienced users alike

Sematext is known worldwide for our Elasticsearch, ELK stack and Solr consulting services and production support, and we are now helping others to become more proficient in these technologies via 1 and 2-day training workshops. In all workshops attendees go through several sequences of short lectures followed by interactive, group, hands-on exercises. There are Q&A sessions after each such block. All trainings are delivered by one of our experts — engineers who have written books, spoken at conferences and have many years of experience helping enterprise, medium and small organizations alike.

We provide three different types of training:

Public Training Workshops
Several times a year we organize public training workshops in Europe and North America.

For more information about Public Training see table above for upcoming training workshops. If you need any additional information about the Public Training Workshops please contact us at training@sematext.com or +1 347-480-1610.
Solr / Elasticsearch On-Site Training
If you’d like Solr and/or Elasticsearch training but don’t have the time or travel budget to come to us, then we’ll come to you! Sematext will bring all the necessary workshop materials to your site and our instructor will conduct the course, which can be adjusted to match the organization’s use case.

This program is ideal for organizations with limited travel budgets as well as those who need to train a number of their employees at the same time, but cannot afford to have so many of their engineers away.

For more information about On-site Training, contact us at training@sematext.com or +1 347-480-1610.
Solr / Elasticsearch Remote Training
We provide remote students with a learning environment that closely resembles the in-person classroom experience. Our primary goal is to enable students to attend our classes remotely while still maintaining the high-quality learning experience that occurs with in-person instructor-led training.

This program is ideal for organizations that wish to have customized learning experience with the same high-quality instruction that they would receive at a public training workshop. This form of training is also suitable for distributed teams.
