As part of this course, students will receive the following materials:

  • Access to a lab environment for the duration of the course
  • Lab exercise guide
  • Access to final course deliverables once the course is available in general availability including copies of all official materials presented by the instructor with additional notes and references as well as videos with experts throughout Citrix around course topics and lab exercises


Students interested in learning how to implement XenMobile features using leading practices.


  • Administrators
  • Implementers / Engineers
  • Architect


Recommended pre-requisite courses:

  • CXM-101 XenMobile Foundations

This course is based on the Citrix XenMobile 10.3 product, but the skills and fundamental concepts learned are common to earlier product versions.

Preparatory Recommendations:

Citrix recommends students prepare for this course by taking the following course:

  • CXM-101 XenMobile Foundations

It is also recommended to gain a basic understanding of the following concepts and technologies:

  • Experience with Mobile Devices and Apps
  • Experience with Windows Server administration
  • Experience with Enterprise File Sharing and Sync
  • Experience with Citrix virtualization technologies, such as XenDesktop and XenApp
  • Experience with Microsoft SQL Server or enterprise database servers
  • Experience with Active Directory and Group Policy
  • Basic Networking including understanding of VPN concepts, SSL encryption and certificates

It is also recommended that students bring a mobile device (iPhone, or Android) to complete device enrollment and Worx-related exercises. This device should not be enrolled in another MDM solution, or would need to be unenrolled in order to use it to complete the mobile device-specific class exercises.

Course goals:
