BMC Footprints Asset Core and Inventory Manager Training

This 3.5-day training class has been designed for our Foot Prints Asset Core customers who need to learn how to configure Foot Prints Inventory Manager to automate their inventory process, but do not need instruction on Foot Prints Patch Manager. This hands-on training class will teach you to effectively discover, inventory and maintain a comprehensive hardware and software inventory of your complex IT environment. This is accomplished via in depth configuration and best practice instruction. Given the compressed time frame and the volume of advanced content covered in this course, students must already be able to perform system basics such as navigating the interface, viewing an asset, and creating user accounts. This course is followed by the Foot Prints Asset Core Administrator Exam. A passing score of %80 or better is required to become a certified Asset Core Administrator.
