Paul Bergquist Fri 31 May


Class Availability: FULL


The class will be postponed if the minimum number of attendees is unmet.

DATES: The next cycle of SkySpark Essentials web-based training will start on Tuesday, July 16th. The training will be presented in eight consecutive 120-minute sessions:

  • Tue - Fri, July 16th - 19th from 11:30 AM – 1:30 PM ET (New York time)
  • Tue - Fri, July 23rd - 26th from 11:30 AM – 1:30 PM ET (New York time)

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 must plan to attend all sessions in a single cycle. It is not possible to mix students from different cycles together.

Attendance is limited to ensure the adequate ability of instructors to respond to individual students. Please be sure that you can be available for all sessions in the entire cycle before registering to attend.

COST: Web-based Essentials Training is $990 list per student.


In order to ensure the training goes smoothly, and everyone gets maximum benefit from the sessions we need to make sure everyone is prepared before the training sessions. Please review and follow these instructions in advance and confirm that you can achieve the requirements before registering.

Web-based Training Requirements and Instructions

Complete Module 1 – Installation of SkySpark Software and Review of SkySpark User Apps THIS IS SELF-DIRECTED PREPARATION WORK REQUIRED BEFORE ATTENDING A LIVE SESSION -

The goals of Module 1 are a) for the student to have SkySpark installed on their own computer and b) to have familiarity with all of the user-oriented Apps (Spark, KPI, Energy, and Historian). Follow these instructions to accomplish these requirements:

Requirement 1. Get Familiar with SkySpark. Attend a SkySpark Deep Dive Demonstration webcast to get a detailed overview of the Apps and core concepts. A schedule of our upcoming SkySpark Demonstration webcasts can be found here

Contact us for access to a recorded version of the Deep Dive if it will not be possible to attend a live session (which is preferred).

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 live, instructor-led training sessions.

Note: You will need a user account on SkyFoundry.com to access these videos (see requirement 2 below).

Requirement 3 – A Licensed Copy of SkySpark. Each student must have their own computer and be able to connect to a licensed copy of SkySpark installed on your computer with at least 200 points of available capacity.

If you do not have SkySpark loaded on your computer, please work with your internal SkySpark team, 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.

For students whose organizations own a licensed copy of SkySpark but cannot “bring it with them” to class, SkyFoundry offers a training license that is active for appx 1 week before class and 1 week after class.

Note: 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 (Chrome, IE 11, Firefox, or Safari). 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.
