UCCXA Training

UCCXA (Cisco Unified Contact Center Express Advanced) v4 is a five-day training course that teaches students to build on the knowledge and scripting experience gained in the prerequisite UCCXD course by exploring more advanced techniques in scripting as well as the overall Cisco Unified Contact Center Express (CCX) v9 functionality. Students will learn to implement features that extend the functionality of Unified CCX using many of the tools available in the Premium version of the product. Students will also invoke behaviors that involve web-based applications, such as Web Callback Option and Leave a Message in Queue.

This training course has a major focus on hands-on labs so that the student can fully grasp scripting and best practices as well as troubleshooting and repairing broken scripts.
