Unfortunately this option is not available for version 7.3, 7.4 training. However, it was announced last week that now in addition to the cloud-based exercise environment, you now have access to a downloadable Virtual Machine (VM) for both the SAE and BAE version 8 courses. This additional option can be used as an alternative to the cloud option and will remain accessible to you once you have completed the course.
WHAT THIS MEANS TO YOU
There is a new lesson in the courses titled “Completing the Course Exercises” that includes information on both training exercise options. This new page has no impact on your existing work. The cloud-based exercise system is still available through the Open Exercise link on each exercise page. You can continue to use your cloud environment to complete the exercises.
For VM use, a button is now available for you to download the exercise system, along with instructions. If you choose to download the VM, you will have access to a fresh training environment. Work done in the cloud environment is not reflected in the VM environment, and vice versa. When you complete the course, and the cloud exercise environment is no longer available, your access to the VM remains.
