The amount of training you receive will vary based on your job. Our field engineers, for example, receive comprehensive classroom and on-the-job training and are mentored by highly experienced engineers early in their careers. But how long it lasts and exactly when it takes place depends on the product service line you're assigned to. Generally speaking, training for field engineers can last anywhere from six months to one year. For people working in one of our support organizations, training, again, varies according to the position, but will, in most cases, take place on the job.
