Online training sessions on Adobe Connect - date and time schedule

This CCSK and Cloud Security course is a unique blended program. Part of that program is online instructor-led (synchronous) training. You will find a more detailed description of the program at If you have not registered yet, you can do so here.

This page has up-to-date resources for access to the live online sessions and is a great one to bookmark in your browser. As a reminder, you will have access to all sessions and all recordings for the life of your CCSK exam token (which is 2 years, and extendable).

Most sessions last 2 hours and start at 4 pm Central Europe Time, which typically is 10 am New York time. You should get messages well ahead with the proper time (if you don't, let me know). For recordings see below.

Session links

The Adobe Connect session links are as follows (Adobe login required, provided to learners):

Jumpstart / Sprint day 1 / Sprint day 2 / Sprint day 3 / Sprint day 4 / Sprint day 5.

All of these have multiple recordings. These can be found by logging into your Adobe Connect account and search for "CCSK 5days" (use capitals in the search box to defeat any '"spelling correcting" browsers). You probably want to sort that page by most recently created.

For CCAK sessions look here.

Session goals

The goal of the sprint sessions is to go through all the material top-down. It is NOT about reading many slides, but it is meant to be very interactive. You’d do well to go through at least part of the material in advance of the session and prepare your questions.

The goal of the focus sessions is to be a Q&A session between the sprint sessions, to keep you going and support you in your secure cloud adoption journey. You can think of these as 'mastermind' sessions. They are also accessible to students from some of my other programs.

The goal of the jumpstart session is to introduce you to the program. This is if you have any questions about how to get started on the program. There will not be much cloud security content in it.

In between those sessions, I will be watching all discussion areas and responding when needed.

Session timing

The next online sprint will take place July (between 2 and 11, by appointment only). The next focus/workshop session is on August 28, 2024. All events start at 16:00 CET, which is 10 am New York time, typically.

The next instructor led full sprint will be in September (17, 18, 19, 24, 25, 26 - 1 spare day), for two hours every day. This will be the first CCSK version 5 sprint.
