At the end of the program, you will take a hands-on practical exam to demonstrate your proficiency to a Gateway instructor.

When you enroll in the program, you will receive:

  • A one-year self-paced system administrator learning subscription, which includes a 19-course series on configuring and maintaining Galaxy
  • Practice resources
    • Practice test booklet with hands-on exercises
    • Galaxy database for use with the practice exercises
    • Galaxy evaluation license valid for 3 months
    • Gateway assistance with installing the practice database
    • 4 hours one-on-one with a Gateway instructor to review your exercises over WebEx
  • Instruction and testing at Gateway headquarters in Gilbertsville, Pa.
    • Day 1: Hands-on hardware maintenance and troubleshooting
    • Day 2: Certification exam*

You will need:

  • PC with the following software:
    • Windows 7 Professional or higher
    • SQL Server Express 2012 (free)
  • About 80 hours to complete all courses, the practice test and certification exam.

*Candidates not passing the exam must wait at least one month before retesting. Retests are not included in the cost of the program.

**The certification is valid for the current major release of Galaxy® (Galaxy 7) software. Significant changes within a major release may require the candidate to take a Gateway-provided continuing-education course to maintain their certification. In the event of such a change, the candidate will be notified and given six months to complete the course. Upon the next major release of Galaxy (Galaxy 8), a candidate already certified in the previous version can become certified in the new version by taking a Gateway-provided continuing-education course.
