Hi All

Has anyone done any desktop or portable technician training, macosx or pro apps training? what are your experiences? is it helpful

Last April, I did a MacOS X Support Essentials 10.4 and that was fabulous. Instead of stabbing in the dark trying to troubleshoot, I had learnt ins and outs about how to go about installing, troubleshoot and using Mac OS.

I wasn't able to do the MacOS X Server Essentials 10.4 bcos my management believes its up to the tier 3 guys to do that.

I am enrolled to do the Directory Services course provided by a fly in fly out Apple Trainer in late May to early June. I am excited to be learning Mac stuff.

I know there are pro apps training in final cut pro, motion or logic pro. Has anyone done them and are they helpful?

Hi Macfox,

I've done several Apple training courses in the UK courtesy of various dealers I was working with at the time. More recently I've been invited to several special "Educational Seminars" (free to edu users only) including AppleScript and Directory Services (DS by Michael Bartosh- very clever chap! he's done an O'reilly book aswell).

The Edu Seminars are only a morning or an afternoon, initialy I thought it would all be sales patter but they do tend to cram a hell of alot of techy stuff into 4-5hours! and Apple grub is good as usual Wink

The full-on courses are, well, excellent- I'm a mac person and admittedly biased but...

Check out the Apple website for free online Seminars (you have to register-its free!!)

worth every penny! Wink

Blimey! what a shock!
I went on a half-day overview of Directory Services in London about 3 or 4 months ago which was taken by Michael, his knowledge and passion for his subject and all things related was truely inspirational.
A great loss to the techy community.

My sympathies for his family
