This course has now been replaced with the 4-day FortiGate Administrator course.

If you have any questions, please call 0870 251 1000 or email

In this course, you will learn how to use the most common FortiGate features, including security profiles and FortiGate networking and infrastructure features.

In interactive labs, you will explore firewall policies, the Fortinet Security Fabric, user authentication, and how to protect your network using security profiles, such as IPS, antivirus, web filtering, application control, and more.

These administration fundamentals will provide you with a solid understanding of how to implement basic network security.

For the Infrastructure part of the course, topics include features commonly applied in complex or larger enterprise or MSSP networks, such as advanced routing, redundant infrastructure, virtual domains (VDOMs), zero trust network access (ZTNA), SSL VPN, site-to-site IPsec VPN, single sign-on (SSO), and diagnostics.
