This training provides an overview of the concepts, processes, and procedures necessary to successfully design and administer the RSA Archer 6.



This training is intended to give new RSA Archer 6 administrators a foundation of knowledge that will equip them to build applications, set up access control, and create dashboards and reports for their users.


After taking this training, students will be able to begin planning, configuring, and managing the RSA Archer 6 environment.



This 4-day classroom-based training is intended to expand the knowledge of RSA Archer 6 administrators and equip them to leverage platform functionality not explored in the Administration I course.
