Class Enrollment Details and Course Pricing

Option 1: New FleX-Net Technician – One attendee, one key, and one cable kit

  • $2,575 + tax per person
  • For new technicians that have no prior FleX-Net Training and do not have a programming key or cable.

*Please note that the prices listed above do not include local state taxes which will be applied once an invoice has been sent to your employer.*

FleX-Net Activation Keys and MGC Cable Kits

Once training registration and payment has been received, Mircom will ship FleX-Net programming keys and MGC cable kits to the training attendee’s employer.  A few days before the beginning of the instructor led portion of class, all training attendees should ensure they receive a FleX-Net programming key in the mail to ensure they can properly take the training course.  All training attendees will be required to utilize the FleX-Net programming key to learn how to operate and program the FleX-Net configurator software.

Mircom will do its best to provide technicians with FleX-Net keys and MGC Cable kits in advance of the first day of the instructor led portion of class.  If unforeseen shipping delays prevent the FleX-Net programming keys from being delivered to the training attendee on time, we ask that arrangements be made by the ESD to lend an existing programming key they have in their possession to their employee for training purposes.  Delaying the delivery date of the training course until keys are received may also be considered.
