Is there any way to get my hands on the OS for labs

You can download a 30 day trail of the FortiOS from fortinet.com and install it on a VM.

I didn't know that. My previous employer had Fortigates deployed across our enterprise. Is there a license key associated with each OS installation?
And is it a simple VM creation.

I haven't tested it as yet but I guess their will be some kind of 30 day license. Not sure how it is done, might just be a simple .VHD download.

Just a quick question how many years/months experience do you have with Forti Products ?
I have been tasked with managing a few fortigates's , fortimanager & fortianalyser ? not sure where to start ?
currently i am watching some you tube videos on fortidevices ? and will be reading the Fortigate Cookbook
any other pointers or tips to ace the devices ( they look a bit complex even though many ppl say that these devices are easy to manage and setup )
