As you know, earlier this week we launched our centralized learning management system. This has been a significant undertaking with this final phase seeing 20 thousand courses, 4.4 million transcripts and 4.7 million registrations being migrated.  We realize some of our users are experiencing access and registration issues as a result.


We have a support team working around the clock, around the globe focussed on resolving issues that have come from this project. We are currently experiencing a larger than expected case volume. Please continue to contact us via our support portal and we will reply to your inquiry as soon as we are able. 


We are committed to providing you with an exceptional education experience and ask for your patience while we work to resolve migration issues. 


We will continue to provide information and updates as we complete this project.

We recently announced that our Learning Management System (LMS) will be upgraded to provide a richer, more personalized experience for our learners. The new platform will go live on September 9, 2019. Please read the information below to prepare yourself for upcoming changes  as we prepare for the final phase of this project.


What do you need to know?

  • The Education Services portal and LearnDell, along with the training systems will be unavailable for use starting Wednesday September 4th, 8pm EST through Sunday September 8th, 8pm EST.
  • You are encouraged to complete any in-flight courses prior to the systems becoming unavailable. This will ensure you don’t lose any learning progress, since bookmarks will not be carried over. Completed courses within a Learning Path will be preserved.


  • There may be a delay of up to two weeks post launch for transcripts to be updated in the new system. This also includes any registrations, cancellations, etc. that take place between August 25th through September 4th.


Frequently Asked Questions:


What is happening to Dell Technologies Education Services’ Learning Management System? ( and

We are consolidating and upgrading the different learning platforms to bring all our customers and partners onto a single learning platform. This represents a major step in our journey to bring you a modern, personalized learning experience.

When does this consolidation take effect?

The consolidation exercise is expected to take effect on September 9th, 2019.

What are the benefits of this consolidation?

Bringing all learners to a single learning platform will provide:

  1. A more seamless and consistent experience for all our customers and partners.
  2. One central catalog of learning content.
  3. An enhanced new experience with more features and functionality, an improved portal experience, and a major step on our journey towards seamless, personalized learning.


Will I have to recreate my account when I log in after the migration?

If you use your account profile and training history will be migrated to the new learning platform. You can log in with your or credentials. If you have any questions, please contact us.

Should you need to create a new account the option is there to do so from the login screen.

If you use you may receive a notification from Dell MyAccount because your account has been migrated to a new system. The validation process will require you to follow the instructions provided in the notification.

  • Note: If you are in the middle of a learning path, any courses you have completed will carry over.


Will there be a period when the system will be unavailable before launch? 

Yes, there will be 4 days between September 4th, 8PM EST and September 8th, 8PM EST during which the system will be unavailable.


What if I am in the middle of taking a course when the migration happens?

To avoid losing your bookmarks or progress tracking, we encourage you to complete any course you are currently taking/plan to take prior to September 3rd. Note that bookmarks for any courses you are in the middle of consuming will not be preserved when moving to the new learning platform.


What happens to all the records of training I have already completed?

Your entire training transcript will transfer with you. Please note, however that training taken just prior to the migration date will take up to two weeks to be reflected in your transcript. If you are in the middle of a learning path, all courses you have completed will carry over.


What happens to all the records of certifications that I have achieved?

There will be no change to any of these records and you should be able to access them as you do currently, including printing out your certificates. Note that if you use the Education Services website to access your CertTracker records, the website will not be available during the blackout period when the migration is being done. You can access your badges directly through your account on the Acclaim site.


Will credit card purchases be allowed?

Yes, you can purchase items with credit card. For the best experience, purchase one item per checkout. If you are prevented from purchasing with credit cards for any reason, you can use training credits available in your account, or contact Education Services for help.


Training purchases, excluding training credits, that are made with a credit card will require a new step to complete the registration process and activate the order. Seats for scheduled training classes will only be guaranteed once these final steps are completed. You will receive an email containing specific instructions required to complete this important activation process.


Who do I contact if my account is not functioning after the transition?

With industry experts predicting an extreme shortage of skilled workers in the cyber defense fields by 2022, the opportunity for women to enter the field is growing larger every day. Now is the perfect time for women to close the gender gap that exists in the cyber security world and fill roles that male counterparts cannot.  This would not be the first time in the history that women stepped up to fill necessary job functions.



Consider the jobs explosion during World War II when American military men shipped off to Europe to defeat the Germans. Women stepped in to fill critical factory roles to keep the war efforts equipped with everything from uniforms, to ammunition to planes. But it didn’t stop there, women filled multiple roles that kept the home fires burning strong, too. Women served in the armed forces, learned how to fix cars, worked in offices and farms. Many local economies remained active because women stepped into roles left vacant by men serving in the military. In 1944, nearly 38% of all American adult women were employed outside their homes and the female labor force grew by 50% overall. 



Today, we are also at war, but the adversary is much different and perhaps more difficult. The modern adversary is smart and knows that cyber defenses worldwide are understaffed. Cyber thieves are banking on the fact that cyber jobs are going unfilled. The rate at which a hacker deploys a new scheme is nearly 4 times faster than a cyber defense worker can be deployed to thwart it. Currently, only 11% of cyber security workers are women so the opportunities for closing the gender gap is quite large. Remember last month when I noted that by 2022, an estimated 1.8 million jobs will be left unfilled? Imagine if those roes were filled with women entering the cyber work force either with college degrees or industry certifications in hand.



What can women bring to the cyber table? First, diversity. Bringing a woman’s perspective to the table brings different viewpoints of business, process and leadership. Diversity is simply good for business.  Cyber criminals have disparate backgrounds and experience, so the wider variety of people and experience we have defending our businesses and networks, the better the chances of success. Second, with a recent push at high school and college levels to bolster enrollment and break down gender stereotypes, women are entering STEM fields more than ever before. The pool of talent is growing deeper every day. 



            The same explosion of female workers we witnessed during World War II can happen again in the cyber world today. Wouldn’t it be great to see a 50% increase in female workers again? I think so.

A recent article in Cybersecurity Ventures suggests that every IT position today is also a cyber security position. This could not be truer in a digital world where data breaches are all too common and the skills gap among IT workers widens.  According to some analysts, as many as 1.8 million cyber and tech jobs could be left unfilled by 2022 because of a lack of qualified workers.



What is the answer?



Training and certification.



It is estimated that 41% of IT professionals hold an average of three (3) industry certifications and even more are seeking to add more skills to their resume each day. Juggling daily duties with learning time is a constant challenge. Finding the right learning modality is critical to success. 


Instructor led training (ILT) is accepted as the most comprehensive method offered to obtain and sharpen cyber skills. Complex issues are shaped in the classroom in hands on environments where a student is fully engaged in the learning process.  An alternative to ILT is the virtual delivery where the instructor is live but reaching students via tele-presence technologies. Both ILT and vILT immerse the learner in the subject matter for the fullest learning experience. 



e-learning or On-Demand Classrooms (ODC) are viewed as cost effective and more convenient when it comes to bolstering specific IT skills. ODC is viewed as an alternative for shrinking budgets but is also known to fall short of providing the full training experience becuase the student misses the interaction with a live instructor.  Dedication of the students to absorb and apply skills offered determines overall ODC success. Still, ODC can help fill skills gaps in the IT world and should be considered critical to bolstering skills. 



RSA University offers all three learning modalities with over 200 course offerings currently in Associate and Professional certification tracks.  Each RSA product features a recommended learning path, exam guide and Practice Test to help prepare students for certification. After completing the courses in a learning path and acquiring professional experience with the product of choice, students can schedule time to take an exam at a local testing center through Pearson VUE, our vendor for proctored exam administration.

EC-Council and RSA Security announce partnership



EC-Council and RSA Security have teamed up to offer EC-Council certification and training programs to RSA Security's vast range of clients, partners and employees


EC-Council and RSA Security have partnered to offer information security skills-based training to professionals globally. The deal was constructed to allow RSA to offer EC-Council courses to RSA clients and partners to address the widening gap between the skills required by corporations to fend off cyber-attacks and the labor pool.


Companies of all sizes are struggling to hire qualified network defenders and security analysts who are integral to staffing their SOCs and to keeping their infrastructure and data secure. EC-Council’s line up of certification programs are tailored to prepare the kind of professional that corporations need to reduce risk and ensure both security and compliance.


RSA will be offering EC-Council training and certification programs including for example Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH), Computer Hacking Forensics Investigator (CHFI), Certified Network Defender (CND), EC-Council Certified Security Analyst (ECSA), EC-Council Certified Incident Handler (ECIH), Certified CISO (CCISO). Students will be able to choose from a variety of modes of learning including live online (virtual) and live in-person. Along with the programs themselves, and the opportunity to earn a new certification with each, is the cloud-based cyber range where students develop their tactical cybersecurity skills. This hands-on tool provides students with an opportunity to apply the program concepts to real world scenarios.


According to Lisa J. Zeena, Sr. Director, RSA University, “With the growing cybersecurity skills gap, companies (in both public and private sectors) looking to recruit personnel with the required expertise to protect sensitive company information are extremely challenged. The partnership between EC-Council and RSA helps address this challenge by offering the necessary skills-based training using state-of-the-art solutions to manage digital risk.”


With the escalation in cyber threats globally, organizations now recognize that an investment in security is a must. Hundreds of thousands of cybersecurity positions are unfilled in the US alone due to a shortage of cybersecurity experts. The partnership between EC-Council and RSA addresses the need to provide the required training, skills, and experience to address the cybersecurity skills gap.


“In a digital world where everything is at risk of being compromised, it is critical that we produce world class cyber security talent to help curb the manifestation of "cyber insecurity” in large organizations. EC-Council's partnership with RSA is a testament to the collective commitment of both organizations to bring high quality "hands-on" cyber security training into the heart of global institutions. This exciting alignment of RSA and EC-Council cyber training will result in a scalable approach in creating world class cybersecurity teams with the hands-on skills and ability to perform their job duties from day one.” Jay Bavisi, CEO, EC-Council Group and Chairman of the Board, EC-Council University

Veterans Day is a day in which we honor United States veterans and victims of all wars.  It’s a day where many of us take the time to say thank you to anyone who has ever served in the US Armed Forces.  It’s also a day where many US military members take a moment to reflect back on their time in service and think about the brave men and women who battled next to them, some of whom are tragically no longer with us but their legacy lives on.  I’m proud to be a veteran, and in the most sincere way possible, thank you to all of the veterans out there.


RSA Global Services employs a large amount of veterans from all branches of the military.  Many of our employees still serve in the Guard, Reserves and have been called back to Active Duty for deployments.  This Veteran’s Day is a special day for RSA Global Services.  We’ve made a decision to give back to those who served.  We are offering exam vouchers for any of our product certifications, at no cost, for any United States veteran. 


RSA has a product certification program for the RSA Archer Suite, RSA NetWitness Platform and RSA SecurID Suite.  The product certification training itself remains for-fee, but with this announcement the $150 certification exam will now be free for US veterans.  This will be ideal for any veterans who are customers or users of RSA products who may already be familiar enough to pass the certification exams or for those who already took the product training and would like to take the certification.


The process for a US veteran to request a free product certification voucher is simple. The two steps required are shown below: 

  1. Go to our product certification page to view our available certifications, find the one that is right for you, review and complete the recommended training (if applicable), and complete the practice tests. Once you feel you are ready to proceed with taking the exam, proceed to step two. 
  2. Open a case with the RSA University support team to request your free exam voucher.
  3. RSA University will issue you the exam voucher which you can then use in your checkout process while scheduling the exam.


While this offer is currently only valid for those who have served in the US Armed Forces, we sincerely thank everyone who has served their country as well as their families.  On behalf of RSA Global Services, we wish everyone a very happy and safe Veterans Day.

With today’s ever growing threat landscape, the volume, sophistication, and potential damages of attacks is increasing. It is becoming increasingly harder to stop attackers from entering your system networks, isolating their motives, and most importantly removing them once they are there.  A typical security environment uses multiple disconnected technologies, supplying an immense amount of information.  Prioritizing a specific piece of data is important to responding quickly to attacks.  At a higher level, however, there is a need to understand if the security strategy is really effective for the business.  In summation, businesses need to change their security strategies.


The solution?  RSA provides a top down approach strategically linking business risk management with security events and priorities

  • Make security teams operationally more impactful
  • Strategically manage business risk

By bringing different practices together, linking security incidents with business context allows security teams to respond faster to protect what matters most.

The RSA suite of tools

  • Keeps the bad actors out, but allows entry to those that have legitimate need to easily access the system
  • Enables visibility and analytics to view the big picture to provide insights into specific attacks
  • Provides business context linked to contextual intelligence for a more informed approach
  • which can then be translated into action

The video in this eLearning discusses how RSA’s tools provide both the detailed information linked to the business context to protect the most sensitive assets.
