#5118 Web-based SkySpark Essentials Training - Next Cycle Starts May 11 - Registration Now Open

Paul Bergquist Wed 22 Apr 2020


We are excited to launch the next cycle of web-based SkySpark Essentials training.

SkyFoundry Certified Instructor and Partner - Building Fit will host the next cycle of training starting on Monday May 11. The training will be presented in one 90-minute session per day scheduled from 12:00PM – 1:30PM ET (New York time), Monday – Thursday over two weeks.

The Web-based Essentials Training class price is $990 list per student.

With the courseware divided into 8 sessions a full training cycle will utilize two weeks of calendar time. Because this is live interactive training, students registering for a class need to plan to attend all sessions in a single cycle. It will not be possible to mix students from different cycles together. Please be sure that you can be available for all sessions in the entire cycle before registering.

Registration is now open for the next cycle starting on Monday May 11. The registration form is available at this link

The following information provides a detailed review of requirements to attend a web-based training course. Please review to confirm that you can achieve the requirements before registering.

Web-based Training Requirements and Instructions

We want to make sure the training goes smoothly, and everyone gets maximum benefit from the session. To do that we need to make sure everyone is prepared before the training sessions, so please review and follow these instructions in advance.

Module 1 – SELF DIRECTED PREPARATION WORK - Review of SkySpark User Apps and Installation of SkySpark Software

The goal of Module 1 is for the student to have SkySpark installed on their own computer and to have familiarity with the use of all of user oriented Apps (Spark, KPI, Energy and Historian).

Follow these instructions to accomplish that goal:

Requirement 1. Get Familiar with SkySpark. Attend a SkySpark Deep Dive Demonstration webcast to get a detailed overview of the Apps and core concepts. Contact us for access to a recorded version if it will not be possible to attend a live session (which is preferred). A schedule of our upcoming SkySpark Demonstration webcasts can be found here

Students are expected to utilize the information presented in the live demonstration and the training videos shown below to practice the use of the various SkySpark Apps to achieve competence with the product as a “user” before attending the web-based training sessions. In addition to attending a Demonstration webcast, students should review the selected training videos shown below. Note: You will need a user account on SkyFoundry.com to access these videos (see requirement 2 below).

The training is conducted with the latest version of SkySpark. All students should have the current version installed. The computer should be relatively modern with a current browser (IE 11, Firefox, Safari or Chrome). You must also have local admin rights on your computer to do some of the exercises. We also recommend that students have two monitors connected during the training sessions.

Requirement 4. Installing SkySpark - Please read and follow the instructions in the Module 1 document found at this link

This document includes instructions for installing SkySpark as well as some pre-session work which will accelerate your understanding of SkySpark and help you get the most out of the class. If you do not have SkySpark loaded on your computer or are not able to connect to a running copy of SkySpark that you will use for the training, please work with your internal SkySpark team or your SkySpark provider, or contact SkyFoundry to get the software loaded on your PC. We are not able to address software installation issues in the live sessions.

Modules 2 through 5 – Live, Instructor Lead Sessions Modules 2-5 are delivered as live webcast sessions. We recommend having the training materials on your computer ahead of time. The materials we will be using in the web-based instruction sessions can be found at this link
