Excellent. The instructor was incredibly engaging!
I thought the course was an excellent introduction to the EntraID platform, which covered the key elements of management and strategy. I will use specific examples of what I’ve learned in our environment as well as hold some of our people accountable for their choices with my new knowledge. The experience of learning via Teams was good. Being able to do it from the convenience of my home was nice.
This was by far the best remote/video course I have ever taken. Good combination of labs, instructor lead lectures, recorded lectures and written material.
This is a well-refined course that provides three full days of instruction. As a consultant, there was not a scenario left unexplored. Every scenario and question I had was answered within the training. If you don’t have the opportunity to attend in person, definitely take advantage of the self-paced training.
This is truly a Masterclass. Unlike so many other classes, you will be pushed to complete the labs in the allotted time. Some of the steps walk you through click by click, but most expect you to understand what you are looking at and what is needed to get to the next step.
Paul, the instructor, is superb. His professional experience and his training ability make for an informative, practical course that lets you come away from it being able to immediately apply the knowledge. Most of our customers don’t need the advanced capabilities but understanding how everything works, and the capabilities to look closer at the configurations and issues, has provided me with stronger skillset to make sure our customers are properly configured and troubleshoot the issues quicker.
If Paul and I find ourselves in the same city at the same time, I hope to have a pint with him.
Paul the instructor was very knowledgeable about MIM and set a great pace of learning. He was very engaging and didn’t read solely off the slides.
Learning via Teams worked great for me. I was in my work office so it felt like any normal-ish meeting..
Paul, the instructor was great, very thorough and helpful. It was lovely to be in his class.
Attending the class via Teams worked very well.
Paul was one of the best instructors I have ever had the pleasure to learn from! Very knowledgeable and very engaging as well as funny!
It was great to have my team member on this course learning at the same time and able to help each other. Attending over the internet was great!
Excellent training, packed with information.
It’s interesting to hear questions from others that you didn’t think of and expanding your knowledge that way too.
Paul was an excellent instructor and very thorough. He did an amazing job explaining the course material in detail. It was a great way to learn via Teams, with great documentation and demonstrations, as well as labs. I would highly recommend it.
We had a private course, and it helps that you are learning from the same source as other team members so you all have the same information.
Paul, the instructor was very informative and engaging throughout the live online training. You can really tell he is passionate and knowledgeable about the product and is dedicated to teaching all he knows regarding MIM. The format and fluidity of the course made this live online training really enjoyable. The labs were laid out well and if there were any issues they were addressed promptly.
One of the best live online classes I have taken! Mr. Captainino, the instructor, is a master of his craft. He dumped a ton of information on us in a short time and still made it fun and easy to follow. I feel much more comfortable working with MIM. Thanks!
Paul was a great instructor. The course was good for the overall operation of MIM. It shows a good understanding and the high-level view of who, what, why and where things happen in that environment.
Paul, the instructor, was wonderful, keeping the energy high and making sure to relate the materials back to our jobs. I really appreciated that the course was so thorough and in depth.
Excellent! The instructor is a master on the topic but still can explain things in a way where he understands that we are not, and we need small chunks of information in order to process it. Recommended!
Excellent training! I came into the course with little knowledge of Azure Active Directory and everything associated with it! Thank you very much to instructor Paul for making it engaging and hands on!
I enjoyed attending the training via Teams. An excellent instructor. I learned a lot on this course. Learning privately as a team is very helpful – we are all on the same page and can work together with organizational standards.
The class was very informative and I believe I gained a lot out of it. The instructor, Paul, did an excellent job.
As it was a private course, my colleagues and I were able to do quite a bit of collaboration.
I liked the calm voice of the presenter, it was pleasent to listen to him. Additionally the XtremeLabs were really good for practice, and the videos and labs were helpful. The experience of learning online, self-paced was very pleasant. I had enough time for the single modules, and to be independent with my allocation of time, and to decide which task I am about to do.
An excellent course over the past week. Paul was engaging and very knowledgeable. I definitely gained a lot during the course which I can immediately take back and use in our current MIM setup.
As always Paul, the instructor, was excellent! It never feels like you are being spoken to and he’s always engaging.
The course is very well laid out, easy to understand, and there are many different ways to learn – whether you prefer watching videos or reading the modules instead. Great demos, great labs and especially great staff who work at Oxford Computer Training who check in with you and offer support where needed. I like that you can keep the coursework too, this is very beneficial.
The self-paced course was much easier to navigate than I originally anticipated. It was well laid out, I felt supported and that I could get help whenever I needed.
I would highly recommend this course to anyone interested in learning MIM! 🙂
Excellent training. The course is very well structured and easy to follow through the labs. The information was very clear and easy to understand.
Paul, the instructor, is fantastic, incredibly knowledgeable and I learned a great deal. I enjoyed his demeanor and pacing. It was the perfect mix of lectures and labs. I came away feeling much more comfortable in supporting MIM.
Paul is a great trainer and a guru in MIM. I really enjoyed the training! Attending over the internet worked fine for me. The benefit in learning as a team is that you can discuss things about the product or solution with your colleagues.
The instructor was fascinating and showed deep knowledge of MIM. He indicated where we might have problems in the implementation and how to avoid them.
The course is very well prepared and gives extensive information for beginners. In order to understand everything, you have to be constantly focused. The lecturer, Paul, is well prepared. I liked how he joked, and then got students to concentrate again. He managed time carefully and correctly. We were a small group of colleagues all with same level of knowledge which led to a kind relationship between all. I’m glad I was on this course with this lecturer!
The course was very good – structured and presented in such a way that builds knowledge step-by-step and that the mind can follow. The training was well organized allowing us to rest and to concentrate. The instructor, Paul, maintained our willingness to learn throughout the entire course. And we always felt thrilled and excited what was next to come.
Learning as a team has its benefits. We were able to communicate and discuss things freely with teammates and the instructor. Paul’s knowledge made the course as its best. Thank you Paul for the great course, and hope to see you again on the MIM Advanced training!
A very knowledgeable instructor and a real pleasure to hear him take time and pride in showing his skills. The training assumes you know nothing about MIM so it takes you through all basics and makes you confident about executing daily tasks.
The course was very informational, and set out clear guidelines of the learning plan. It was easy to access and follow through labs. The learning was great, we could all ask questions when we needed to. Paul was a terrific instructor and very knowledgeable. Doing the course remotely from home was great – it made the learning process more comfortable.
Paul did an outstanding job in teaching us MIM to an advanced level. I would strongly recommend this course to anyone who needs to further improve their MIM knowledge. Remote attendance via Teams worked great!
It was hard to find the time initially – but once I got into the groove of focusing on the course material, I found the course really helpful. It being broken up into videos allowed me to work around other commitments, as well as pause if needed. The opportunity to then test out what I’d just learned in labs was invaluable as well, as having that no-consequences environment is rare, even in a dev environment!
Excellent. This is the second course I had with Paul and he is an excellent teacher, always happy to answer any question related to MIM and identities.
A solid course with a very knowledgeable instructor who can answer any questions you throw at him, even if the question belongs to the expert course! This course was well-rounded with plenty of time to do the labs. Learning online by Teams works very well for me.
Paul was a brilliant instructor and extremely knowledgeable. I definitely learned a lot.
Paul has a clear voice and is an instructor who can give a training vividly.
Learning remotely on Teams works well for me. I can see my colleagues on the screen, and communicate well with the teacher and the other students when necessary.
Excellent training. Attending the course via Teams was not a problem and in a private course we could focus on topics relevant to my organization.
Excellent training. The instructor, Paul, was engaging and funny!
Very insightful and, as usual, instructor Paul was outstanding!
The course was very good and has given me a good base to build my MIM skills on.
Even though I have been working with MIM for a while now, I learned so much on this course! Paul was an absolutely amazing instructor!
Learning remotely via Teams was a very convenient and pleasant experience.
I thoroughly enjoyed the course. It was very informative and allowed us to put to practice what we were being taught gradually. Paul, the instructor, made it a comfortable and relaxed environment for us to ask questions to ensure we understood clearly.
Paul was a great teacher, was full of knowledge, very engaging and helpful. This is the second course I have attended that Paul has been the instructor, and both were top notch.
The course was delivered perfectly using Teams.
I felt the course gave a comprehensive and thorough visual, auditory and hands-on learning approach. Paul’s paint skills are on point!
I got a great perspective on MIM/PAM and PIM/ PAM from an architecture, features and capabilities point of view. Learning privately together by Teams worked well and the Q&A/discussions gave us an opportunity to learn from each other as well. Excellent.
I enjoyed the training anchored by Mr. Paul Captainino. He backed up the learning with practical, real-life experiences. The training was innovative and mind-enlarging. Rather than teach us everything, we were encouraged to reason out the ‘why’ behind things and solve problems on our own. Even though the training materials were voluminous, the concepts about the training were very much detailed and self-explanatory. Overall thanks a lot to Mr. Paul!
Extremely detailed breakdown of MIM, explaining a number of concepts alongside a selection of labs. Paul was great – he definitely made understanding MIM much easier.
Excellent course – informative and well structured. Paul, as always, was an excellent instructor, highly knowledgeable and projected fun and enthusiasm throughout the course.
Excellent course. Paul is very knowledgeable and is able to translate his knowledge in a fun and “exciting” way. Thanks again Paul.
Very comprehensive, detailed and interesting course especially useful for understanding how MIM works on a deeper level. Paul was very engaging and a fountain of knowledge as expected from previous courses!
Learning by Teams was fine, and good for collaboration, asking questions and screen sharing.
The course was very good, and Paul is an excellent instructor, very friendly and attentive. I went in thinking it was going to be an information/knowledge dump, but Paul, having understood I am a systems administrator and not a developer, worked with me and presented the coding topics from a non-developer point of view which helped me a lot! I am very grateful to him!
I had a very good experience learning remotely online via Teams. Up until recently I had some objections to online training. In fact, I had even turned down some training offers in the past because they were not classroom-based. I have to admit was completely misguided as they are as good as being classroom-based, which are very rare nowadays. This remote training worked well for me, and I have done both the self-paced and live sessions with OCT.
Excellent! This training has been the most interesting, complete and challenging I have followed in a very long time. The structure and usage of support media was impressive and a model to be followed.
Excellent course!! Thanks so much for creating this course. I really enjoyed the lessons and appreciate the quality of the teaching and depth of the subject matter.
Great course! Paul has a great method of teaching and I found it all very good.
A really good course for people who want to dig deeper. Taking the class online, self-paced was very nice and chill. I am very glad that course period is quite long – it’s a big plus for people whose schedules are very busy. Definitely a huge plus!
Five star training. The instructor, Paul, is very knowledgeable and presents the course material in a very digestible manner.
This course was very well laid out and easy to follow. I really appreciated the way later lessons built on earlier ones and the labs were an excellent tool to put the concepts into practice.
As my job involves me being ready to respond to issues as they arise, I was happy to have the option to take it as a self-paced course that I could spend time on when I had it available. The videos were very easy to follow and the manual is a very, very valuable resource.
Paul, the instructor, and the material were very engaging. Paul was excellent answering questions and he provided great assistance when needed.
Excellent. I enjoyed the interactions and instructions from the instructor, Paul. He provided thorough explanations and got us through the material rapidly. As this was a private course, it was good to be able to discuss with my colleagues how the material applies to our current production and test environments.
Wonderful course and instructor. The collaboration and white boarding with the team was great!
The course was good and informative. Paul, the excellent instructor, conducted the session very well and explained the topics in detail. Remote learning with Teams went very well.
Great! I was able to complete each module and watch each lecture at my own pace.
The course material was amazing, and very relatable to my situation at work. It covered all aspects of Azure AD Connect well. The lecturer was great and clear at explaining stuff. He sounded a lot like the David Attenborough of Azure AD Connect, so I learned a lot! The personal tutor was great support too.
A very pleasantly delivered course with real-world application. The instructor Hugh – as always – provides excellent explanations in an easy to listen way and the Oxford Computer Training portal presents a professional appearance with easy navigation.
The course significantly augmented my Azure AD Connect skills and filled in the gaps surrounding design/support scenarios along with providing a very comprehensive deep dive. The course is filled with tons of helpful tips, references, examples, demos, and labs.
In many ways learning online, self-paced was better than an in-person class, because I could review modules as I needed to as well as slow my pace during labs – thus achieving better retention. There was zero impact to my scheduled meetings, and work provided for a fluid progression of learning without scheduling conflicts which allowed for a flexible and relaxed timetable.
Paul, the instructor, is very experienced in this area. I learned a lot from this course. Very helpful.
Informative, professional and in-depth. We went through a variety of areas within Azure. A great course to understand Azure from the very beginning. Paul was talkative, engaging and an all-around brilliant instructor.
Attending over Microsoft Teams was an enjoyable experience and it did not take away from not being an in-person class. I learnt everything I would have expected to learn in-person.
Excellent. It is probably one of the most difficult subject areas I have done a course for, but the instructor covered all the course material very well. With our geo location, learning privately via Teams was really the only way we could get this course done together.
Paul was a phenomenal instructor and presented the material in a way that was entertaining and engaging!
Excellent! Paul, the instructor, was very helpful when needing to hit certain topics deeper that were important to our organization.
Very comprehensive course and advanced concepts around MIM were explained in a detailed but clear manner. The instructor Paul was incredibly knowledgeable and friendly – what else could you ask for in an instructor? Would definitely recommend this course to those wanted to expand their MIM knowledge beyond a fundamental understanding.
Paul, the instructor, was very knowledgeable and went above and beyond to meet my training needs!
The course was very informative, labs were great and Paul – the instructor – was incredible. I liked that the class was small. He was very knowledgeable and funny, and has the gift to keep you engaged even when your brain is overloaded. Well done! Thank you!
Well done. I gained lot of new knowledge. It was well structured and I feel like I picked up a lot of new information during the course.
Excellent! Learning remotely via Teams was surprisingly good! I normally prefer self paced to classroom training and this was the best of both.
A very positive experience. Paul is an excellent instructor. He is clearly very knowledgeable on the subject and is very helpful and patient with students.
A very insightful and useful course. The learning was clear and straightforward. An excellent instructor.
All good. The instructor took our environment into consideration as we worked through the course material.I prefer remote learning via Teams. The text chat allowed us to share comments without interrupting the flow and I hope the emojis gave encouragement to the instructor.
Wow! Paul, the instructor, was great! 10/10!
It was an excellent experience. Paul, the instructor, is a very knowledgeable person and he has the ability to teach people with patience and create a relaxed environment so you can learn. His jokes are great!How was my experience of attending remotely by Teams? We have to go with the times. Teams provides a good experience for remote learning.
Paul’s knowledge is huge! 🙂 The MIM course was very informative and I learned a lot from it. Learning live via Teams worked very well for me.
Paul, the instructor, was very engaging and knowledgeable. This course was very good in my opinion.
Excellent coverage and a great follow up to MIM Foundation. It’s very convenient to learn online, self-paced when still having to be available for work. Thank you for your understanding about time constraints – greatly appreciated.
The instructor Paul’s explanations were clear and concise throughout the course. The course material is ideal for future reference as it explains the reasons behind doing what you did in the labs, great for referring back to in future.
The course was very informative and well made. Paul is a great instructor, he has a talkative personality that keeps talking very enthusiastically about sometimes boring IT stuff. I am glad I took the course.
Learning live online via Teams is a very good approximation to being in an actual classroom and has some small advantages.
The assignments were very beneficial to the entire learning process. They clarified up some of the points that I had neglected to focus on, so thank you for an incredible class. I learned quite a bit in this course, and I also enjoyed myself… so that says something.Self-paced learning means you can learn in your own time and schedule. You don’t need to complete the same assignments or learn at the same time as others. Thanks for providing good online self-paced learning documents. Excellent.
Excellent. Comprehensive and informative.
Paul is by far the best instructor I have ever encountered. He explains things very well, is very patient and can also make the class entertaining and fun.
I prefer learning by Teams/Zoom. It allows for quick snacks and tons of privacy even though you are in a virtual classroom with other people.
The MIM Foundation course is a great way to really start understanding exactly how it works. Before the course, I had a rough idea from what colleagues had shown me and told me, as well as what I’d seen when looking around. But this training really expanded my knowledge drastically to the point where I’m now more comfortable supporting MIM.Learning live over the internet made it very easy to attend as it was flexible and accessible from anywhere.
Excellent course. Paul is a very good instructor with profound knowledge of MIM. Very friendly and really good teaching skills.
The class was very informative and the labs were a good tool to get familiar with MIM. The instructor Paul’s knowledge and experience were a tremendous help.
Excellent training. The instructor, Paul, makes learning topics much more interesting than simply learning from PowerPoint presentations or books. Learning live by Teams was great. Really convenient.
Excellent. The course was very informative and helped to explain some more intricate details of MIM. Attending remotely by Teams was a great experience.
Paul is a good trainer. He explained very well and addressed all the queries which we asked. I would like to take this opportunity to thank him and look forward to getting trained by him in the future.
Excellent training and trainer 🙂
Excellent course. The instructor Paul made learning live over the internet very easy.
Paul did a great job in teaching the course. I had never seen MIM prior to the course, and after the class, I do feel that I have a good base understanding. Thanks Paul!
Course coverage was good with ample labs. We had very interactive sessions with instructor Paul each day of our intensive training. A private course for me and my colleagues meant it was very interactive and we could get clarifications one-to-one that were relevant to us all.
A very good introduction to MIM. Instructor was very knowledgeable and helpful.
Excellent. It was well organized and the structure was good for someone starting with MIM.
Excellent. Great week, awesome course and instructor. Thanks so much!!!
For me it was a very interesting deep dive in everything happening under the cover of Azure Active Directory. As a Platform Engineer we facilitate application teams to consume all kinds of authentication flows and it was very helpful to actually see and understand how this works. We do not often get hands-on with application flows. The magic in the cloud explained so to say.
The level of detail that is explained during the course was really great. It feels a bit like: for my job I’ve been moving boxes around for a while, and finally I got to see what’s inside the boxes. It will definitely help with understanding the bigger picture of what is happening, and we also learned to use some concrete troubleshooting tools.
The content was really good – so much information each day! I liked the camera on/off way off working, as with the camera off at all times I tend to get even more easily distracted.
Great job John. There are only a handful of people in the world that can deliver a training like you did. Very clear and informative, and you are definitely an expert on this subject. I couldn’t find any glitch or anything you didn’t know 🙂 Awesome!
The course itself was also very informative and a truckload of information in a short amount of time. Awesome week and good job! Would love to meet you in person someday John. Keep up the good work 🙂
This training course is very helpful to understand the technology even for someone without much experience.
Good rapport by the instructor Paul and the course was well communicated. Thanks.
Excellent course. Learning live online from home is for me the best way! And, of course, private team training is always better, to discuss our experiences and compare our different points of view.
Very helpful, engaging presentation, deep knowledge, thank you. Learning live online was really effective, and it was good to have a private class for our organization to be able to ask specific questions about our environment.
Excellent instructor – Paul knows MIM inside and out. He is very thorough, and keeps a decent pace we all can enjoy and grow into. Paul has a very good personality, and has these classes organized and on point. Fully recommend his training to anyone wanting to get into identity management within MIM. Excellent. Five stars. Thanks.
Attending remotely was perfect. This class stayed on track, at a great pace, and was full of information about MIM.
As always, Paul, the instructor’s presentation was thorough with excellent examples and laced with humor. I appreciate Paul’s willingness to field questions both directly and indirectly related to the material in the course.
As usual, Paul, the instructor, is a wealth of knowledge.
Excellent! Great course. Five stars.
Awesome class! Each course just gets better and better on how to use MIM for the business. Paul, the instructor, knows his stuff. And he shares his knowledge and really helps us understand the inner workings of MIM. Best in the business for this type of training. This was an absolutely excellent course! Thanks so much!
The course was great. I started out with no real knowledge of MIM and now I have lots. It was a great start to the learning journey. I appreciate the way course was conducted and how much information was crammed into it.
Paul is a fantastic trainer. He covered the material in a very professional manner with his expertise, and ensuring we received the overview successfully, staying on point. I look forward to the Advanced and Expert courses in MIM, and hope that Paul will be our trainer. Excellent class. Thanks.Attending training remotely online is the future for technology training. The students don’t have the overhead of travel, and out-of-their-environment, giving them the ability to focus on the course, and not be distracted about travel. Highly recommend. I believe this is the “go to” future for training. This course was covered extremely well, and I don’t believe it could have been improved upon.
Excellent presentation of the concepts and reinforcement of core principles throughout the course. The instructor was always helpful and answered all questions. The labs were very good.
Both the course content and the instructor were very good. The way the labs and lectures were constructed made sure that we were glued to the contents every day! Attending the training remotely was great. The Teams call was seamless, and we didn’t have a single glitch for all those hours.
We had a private custom course in Azure AD and Azure AD Connect. Both the course material and, more importantly the instructor, Paul, made it easy to stay engaged. The labs were excellent and made it easy to learn and understand Azure AD Connect and Azure AD administration.
I am an app developer to support MIM. I use ECMA and I found that the instructor is very experienced in this and the course is informative. It gives extensive coverage of what MIM can do. It is a great exposure to me.
Paul the instructor has a wealth of knowledge and shared some tidbits that could prove very valuable in terms of implementation. Having a private course was great – it was nice to have my team members in the same class. Learning remotely was fine.
Paul the instructor is very nice and clear on his explanations. The private training was excellent as it helped the team to share the knowledge and increase our co-operativeness.
Excellent. We did a private customized class taking in both Azure AD and Azure AD Connect with the instructor Paul. He has an amazing amount of knowledge and his ability to maintain focus and keep the class moving is truly impressive.
Excellent. Very thorough course with good demo videos and labs to confirm information.
Overall I thought the course was very good. Paul has great sense of humor, and kept the class interesting and informative. Did learning remotely by Teams/Zoom work well for me? Yes!
Excellent. The instructor is really an expert in the field. He is very funny which helped me relax. Zoom/Teams learning is the way now and will stay for a long time.
Attending a private course worked very well for myself and my team. Paul was an excellent instructor, he was very knowledgeable and I loved his sense of humor. I would really like to have him as my instructor in the future. Thank you Paul!!!
As with every Oxford course, it was greatly rich in detail and the exercises cover all of the pertinent information needed to feel comfortable working with the technologies in Azure AD. Having learned from Paul, the instructor, before, I am reaffirming that he’s an excellent, enthusiastic instructor and takes the time to make sure you understand the topics. I have and will continue to recommend OCT. (I brought a friend this time!) Thank you!Have I any suggestions for improvements to the course? Maybe buy Paul a pint? Four days of talking must be dehydrating!
Paul the instructor was extremely precise, prompt, and knowledgeable. There was not a question he couldn’t answer! The Labs were extremely helpful and with Paul being there the whole time for questions, we were able to get over any hurdle. I learned a lot during these four days and hope to take more classes from Oxford in the future. Thanks!
The instructor, Paul, has a way of articulating complex ideas in a digestible way with little to no filler. The knowledge transfer was excellent. I am looking forward to future instruction from Oxford! Thanks again Paul. Learning remotely by Teams was good, and the questions my colleagues asked throughout the course contributed to my understanding as well.
This course was very insightful and in-depth on the inner workings of MIM. Paul Captainino, the instructor, is not only very knowledgeable, but is able to deliver a lot of technical information in a very digestible way. My experience o learning with Teams was great. There were no technical issues. It was great that the instructor could access our VMs and assist us on the spot with any issues.
Paul the instructor was thorough in his coverage of the material, he was knowledgeable in his response to questions and he brought humor to the course which helped students stay engaged.
Very informative, in-depth training. It greatly helped to increase my knowledge and understanding of the inner workings of MIM.
This MIM Advanced course is very good. It allowed me to see some of the features that can be applied to my organization’s MIM setup.
This training is exceptionally good! The course outline covers many different aspects but it does not prevent to go really deep in each aspect. John is an excellent teacher who can talk about complicated stuff in really simple terms. I would like to see more trainings like that!
A very deep dive. I really enjoyed the week, even if some topics were a little bit hard for me. The week has really helped me to understand all those things. 🙂
John was great and covered a lot of information in a clear manner. There was a good spread of subjects covered and each was given enough time and explained well. Top Class!
One of the better courses I have completed in the past few years with a decent level of technical depth and information that is truly valuable and comes from real experience as opposed to simple vendor functionality guidance.
Excellent course. Very informative, and the demos were par excellence. I enjoyed doing it self paced, there wasn’t any pressure.
Excellent. It was a very good course. Learning self-paced was a very good experience. I think a lot of efforts were made here to summarize a lot of precious information.
Excellent. It worked out well. While I normally prefer instructor-led courses, on this online, self-paced course, I could spend more time on the labs and “tinkering” than I would have in a classroom setting.
The instructor Paul was excellent during our 4 days training. He had fantastic patience and make everyone feel important.
Learning remotely by Teams was good. It felt like one-to-ones with the time Paul spent on everyone both as a team and individually.
Because it was a private course, we discussed scenarios that we see in our team, and it was fantastic that Paul was able to answer some questions that we had with regard to our daily tasks.
Very informative and the workshops were super to retain the information. In regard to my day job, having my colleagues on this private course was helpful, and when questions were asked I could relate to where I would be using and applying the information.
I felt overall the course was well covered, it was easy to follow and very enjoyable.
Another great course from Oxford Computer Training! I have taken several courses over the years and am always impressed by the depth of understanding that I come away with.
I thought the format and the pacing of the Modules, Labs and Exams was great. The fact that you provide the Module Videos, Module Docs and even a video walkthrough of doing the labs really re-enforces the content.
As with the MIM Foundation, the MIM Advanced course was well thought through and had real-world scenarios and tips. As always with OCT, the instructor was clear with not only the teaching but the purpose of the teaching.
Learning online, self-paced was good – I could run through as slowly or as quickly as I wanted, repeating any parts that I needed to clarify.
Excellent! I appreciate the instructor Paul’s knowledge and subject matter expertise. He was very quick to adjust the course pace and adapt to students needs.
This course was great! I love the hands-on training with the Labs. I like the private course with my colleagues because we got to go at our own pace. Attending over the internet worked well for me.
The instructor, Paul, seems to be an oracle of knowledge when we talk about identity management systems. He had time and patience to go through our queries and provide an insight and understanding. His sense of humour and ability to keep everyone engaged is commendable. Thank you Paul.
Excellent. The knowledgeable instructor made the subject easy to understand.
Very good course and instructor. Lots of useful detail generally pitched at the right level for me, that has left me confident to work with the synchronisation service in production. The instructos Hugh’s style was engaging and his pitch and tone kept me interested.
Paul is a great instructor and this is my second class with him (he taught my MIM Expert class in 2017). I appreciated all his expertise and patience with my questions.
Great content! I really appreciate how the instructor tailored comments and training content to my interests and training needs. Excellent. Thanks!
The course pace and materials were great. The real-world applications were shown well. Well done. My learning style would suggest that I absorb information better when applied, which means the labs were great for me.
Paul the instructor was fantastic. He did a wonderful job wrapping my head around MIM. He took extra care to make sure we have a good understanding of what we’re asking the system to do along with why we’d want to do it. He called out potential pitfalls to help us avoid issues. The course itself was very helpful.
I find learning by Teams/Zoom to be just as effective as learning in person learning so long as you can keep yourself focused, which I can.
A great course to understand the foundations of MIM. Learning remotely via Teams was great experience and everything went smoothly.
Overall it was excellent. I learned a lot in just 4 days.
Excellent video courses that dive deep, covering all aspects of the technical make up of Azure AD Connect.
Paul is a very good teacher. I can really say this: that he is an expert on MIM! Thanks again. Learning remotely via Teams worked perfectly.
Excellent. The instructor was engaging and did not just talk off the slides. I’ve taken many live courses online now and learning remotely works for me.
Paul was a great instructor. He provided a lot of details on how Azure AD is configured as well as security aspects. I feel like that I have gained a lot of knowledge after this training. Attending the training via Teams was great.
Excellent training. The instructor Paul is witty and gives a good understanding of the contents of the course.
As we are all now accustomed with online meetings and remote working, attending a class via Teams is not a problem. We were lucky that our group for this private training was small, so it was easy enough to interrupt for a question.
The benefit of learning privately as a team was that we could ask questions about things we all need to know as a team.
The course was up to the usual excellent standards and flowed nicely through some complicated topics. Thoroughly enjoyed it. I always enjoy doing a course in my own time.
Excellent training. The instructor was very thorough and knowledgeable, and always willing to assist in queries and resolve issues. I enjoyed the sessions and interaction with the tutor and other participants.
Course was well paced and the instructor was knowledgable and personable, a great experience and extremely efficient way to learn. Learning as team was great because the different disciplines were able to bounce questions off each other, and that deepened the learning experience.
An incredible course that I would recommend to anyone in this field. John Craddock is an exceptionally knowledgeable instructor with decades of experience and delivers this course masterfully.
There’s so much content here, it could easily be a 10 day course, and I would definitely attend it.
Thanks John for this course. It’s the best course I have done in many years.
Best course I ever attended! It was an intense week but every chapter was very interesting and very well prepared. As an online course, it was executed perfectly! The lab environment was great for putting the theory in practice.
John is a fantastically knowledgeable instructor and this course was amazingly useful.
Well designed and interesting hands-on labs. The course is also well-structure. Learned a lot from this Masterclass.
Paul, the instructor, did a stellar job of delivering a lot of technical content in a short space of time, and the whole team has improved their level of confidence. Learning remotely via Teams was flawless throughout and with the chat etc, it was very engaging. I think having a private course works well and is so much more flexible for teams spread out across geographical distances.
Excellent. Five stars. A very useful training program which has helped me understand the flows of MIM and different implementation approaches. Doing it privately by Teams worked well for me.
Excellent. I enjoyed the class and have a much better understanding of how MIM operates. I look forward to putting what I have learned during this class into action with my day to day work activities, and attending the MIM Advanced training in the near future. The class worked real well in this remote format. I enjoyed having this private class with my fellow associates. This, by nature, resulted in questions that were specific to our instances and topics where we do have a shortage of collective knowledge.
Overall, I thought the course moved at a good pace for us being all virtual, and the content was very detailed and enjoyable. The instructor Paul continuously demonstrated his expertise in the subject matter through his passion about technology and kept the course interesting.
Learning remotely was a good experience – I prefer it to traditional classroom settings because it is easier to interact and have questions answered in my experience. I think the benefits of learning privately as a team include gaining a comprehensive understanding of what the team knows and doesn’t know. It’s important that each team member is aware of what knowledge the team has and doesn’t have.
A very enjoyable course, well presented in a relevant and interesting style by Paul. Learning remotely by Teams worked for me. I was much more refreshed each morning than when I’ve stayed in hotels to attend courses.
This was a training that exceeded my expectations by far and was definitely the most challenging I have attended. Even notions that I thought I was mastering were challenged by ‘professor’ John. Every minute of the 5 days was intense, and the course pushed me to go beyond my technical limits and learn and challenge more.I am really grateful for being able to attend this class and will continue to strive for excellence in my job due to this participation.Learning privately worked for me. It made me connect to my colleagues in ways and tech-discussions that we usually do not have time for at work.Special thanks to John Craddock again and again!
Excellent. A five star course. Thank you very much John!
I really enjoyed the class. John is great instructor and very knowledgeable. I would definitely take other courses with him. The benefit of learning with others from the same company privately is getting to meet new people and live troubleshooting.
Very intense, very relevent, and a lot of information covered in a very short period of time with an excellent level of depth. John is very knowledgable and passionate about the topic that he teaches. I don’t know where he gets his energy from in such a long week!
The course was excellent. Nice deep dive into authentication methods and use with Azure AD. Learned some valuable troubleshooting methods for app authentication. I liked that it was a private course – just people from the same company. Several of them I have worked with on projects before, with and that made it easier to discuss items in terms of projects we may be working on. The course was great and having the hands-on labs really helped to understand the material being presented. Learning by Zoom worked great. I am used to working from home and using collaboration tools, so this was like a regular day for me!
It is a great course. I learned the hidden features of the identity platform. I learned many new things through detailed labs, and John is really knowledgeable and guided us to learn well. During the pandemic, learning through Zoom is the best way one can learn. It worked really well and it was great to meet colleagues in the same company from different geographies and get acquainted with them.
John is clearly a total expert with great way of explaining things. The labs and material work very well, and incremental approach helps to build and solidify knowledge. Learning by Teams works – I miss meeting people though.
Excellent. The course provides great value to anyone who is looking for in depth understanding of Azure AD functionality, workflows and protocols. John did fantastic job of furthering my knowledge.
Excellent. Learning via Teams worked for me. It was nice to see my colleagues on a private course and hear what their questions were.
Paul is a great instructor and has an enormous amount of product knowledge. Learning by Teams worked great for me. I had no problems whatsoever, the small course size and knowledgeable people were very efficient.
It was a really well structured course, I learned and enjoyed it a lot. Paul was a excellent instructor with a lot of knowledge about MIM.
I have some years of experience with MIM, through installs to administration to even provisioning, but I decided to opt for the foundation course to help me better understand how to mitigate bad data. I’m happy to report that I learned far more than I thought I would, and developed the skills to manage exactly what I was hoping to learn more about. Paul is an excellent instructor and with his extensive knowledge and passion for MIM, paired with the intuitive labs, I was able to absorb a ton of great knowledge on MIM in only a matter of 4 days.The remote learning experience, via Teams, worked perfectly for me, even better than in person.
An intense, in-depth course. Paul the instructor knows the content inside-out and provides excellent examples and explanations of every element of MIM covered. Personally, I prefer in-classroom learning, but due to the pandemic situation I appreciate that it is not possible. All the content was thorough and well explained.
Excellent. The course was really well laid out, with a few modules each day. The VMs worked really well and it was good to have the snapshots for each point in the course. The PDFs were well written and easy to follow along with. Paul (our instructor) was well spoken, enthusiastic and happy to help with any questions.I didn’t mind learning via Teams as we could still see Paul via his webcam and he was sharing his screen. We could also use the chat feature and put our hands up or thumbs up about stuff, etc. It was good to learn with a colleague on the same course, as we could speak to each other or ask questions about MIM specific to our organization.
Paul, the instructor, did an excellent job, always postive in what must have been difficult circumstances running a training course over Teams. Course was informative.
Learning remotely by Teams was great. Everything worked very well and because it was a private course, the team was able to ask questions and collaborate via chat.
Learning online self-paced was excellent. A very good experience.
Paul the instructor was very knowledgeable and informative. He laid out the best practices and processes of MIM, and went into details if/when we needed additional information.
The private course with my colleagues went well. It might have been better if we were able to all be in person in a conference room together but that’s not possible with circumstances as they are in the world. Paul is a great instructor and made the very best of the online situation.
The instructor was organized, well prepared, and used class time efficiently. His teaching methods aided my learning, with the ability to remotely connect into the class VM and discuss the issues that I encountered. What benefits me most is the instructor’s feedback – it was helpful and improved my understanding of the material.
As a newbie in the identity world, I really enjoyed the course pace and hands on. Hats off to you & your team!
Excellent. John explains all the complex topics very nicely and it was a pleasure to attend the five day training. The presentations were prepared very well and the hands-on labs were prepared perfectly so that I was able to follow along without issues.
Learning via Zoom was a very good experience. No interruptions, good audio and good video quality. Training as a team worked well. It is interesting to hear what others say and generally in Covid times it is nice to see other people 🙂
The training was very comprehensive and detailed! It showed all the aspects of the identity lifecycle and what’s happening within both Active Directory and Azure Active Directory. Excellent delivery, and recommended for those who work with identity and security! Training has been fantastic! Thank you John for sharing your learnings with us!
John Craddock engages each student directly by name. The Identity Masterclass is exceptional even for seasoned professionals. The breadth of the scope that is taught is massive, but John makes the learning experience reasonable and you will come away with a great amount of retained knowledge.
I’d recommend learning remotely. I feel that in this case remote learning via Zoom is better than a classroom.
It was a great experience from every point of view! Deep dive into the topic, great examples, very kind and helpful attitude from John during the whole course and hands-ons. Big thank you John!
Learning by Zoom comes with the times, you know, after almost 2 years of home office, you just take it as normal. And a private course means team spirit is there for sure, with competition, humor, short chats and all those nice things 🙂
The training was great and John is an amazing instructor. I love the training delivery format, very engaging and interactive. Highly recommended!
Learning by Zoom was good, I find it effective and huge credit really goes to the instructor and the delivery format.
Excellent. I especially liked the balance between hands-on and theory. Attending remotely by Zoom worked great! It was also a good session to get to know your colleagues.
John knows his stuff, there’s no question about that. I can honestly say that this course is among the top three I had the chance to attend in the past decade.
Having already taken the MIM Foundation and the MIM Advanced, I feel that this is the course I needed to fully enhance my confidence in the product.
A virtual class is always fine. There is a lot of flexibility and it removes the rigors of a commute. It worked well for me.
The course was good. The labs are great to get hands-on experience. Paul, the instructor helped us in doing labs which is great!
Learning by Teams was great.
Instructor Paul is very knowledgeable, and has in depth understanding of this technology. I am looking for another training with Paul. Attending remotely by Teams was seamless.
Paul, the instructor, is machine with lot of ammunition for MIM. Glad to have a chance to be taught by Paul.
Excellent. The instructor Paul is very knowledgeable and experienced.
The course material was fantastic! I had no idea that there could possibly be so much content to cover for an “appliance” like Azure AD Connect. I look forward to my next course!
Paul was a fantastic instructor for us. It must be hard work teaching a class remotely and not seeing or hearing your class. But Paul made it look effortless, and was very funny. I know we all enjoyed the class. Learning by Teams worked really well for me on our private course, which all went really well to learn with colleagues as you’re able to discuss matters easier and more openly.
Very good detail and Paul, the instructor, did a great job of making sure all points were covered, and he was personable too. It was no problem to learn via Teams.
Paul, the instructor, has been amazing and highly knowledgeable, I’ve learnt a lot from him over the past few days and was very impressed with his approach to delivering the course. The benefits of private training are that you are doing it together as a team and can share experiences. Attending over the internet worked well.
One of the best online certification courses I’ve completed due to the no pressure, self-paced environment. The instructors and administrative staff made completing the course a breeze. I cannot recommend it enough!The experience of learning online, self-paced was fantastic! The air around the course meant I could do it in my own time, with no pressure with deadlines or quotas to reach. I was training at work at the same time so being able to do this outside/inside of work hours has been so amazing.
Overall great class and the instructor, Paul, covered it very nicely. He has outstanding trouble-shooting skills. He solved and fixed every issue we had with the labs. Very impressive! I also appreciate Oxford holding the class with only two students – I really needed this for my work and I’m grateful you held the class. Over the years, I’ve taken just about all of your courses.
It was intense but I like the fact that Paul, the instructor, was willing to adjust the course time and pace according to my need. I absolutely recommend taking the course series for overall and deeper understanding of MIM. Learning via Teams worked for me.
Excellent. The material was good and the instructor Paul did a great job explaining MIM/PAM. Learning privately as a team with colleagues means we all understand the complexity of our own environment.
Excellent. This course was a better explanation about identity protocols and standards that I had access to until today. The base used by Microsoft Identity Solutions is so more clear for me now.
The biggest benefit to a private course is to establish a global network of people from the same company who work with the same type of technology.
Fantastic advanced content with unparalleled depth of explanation. John is very knowledgeable and helpful and is able to explain very complex concepts. Overall, a great experience!
Learning privately and remotely by Zoom was a very positive experience. Being able to see colleagues from around the world was very beneficial. It allowed for much more comfortable environment. It is great to get additional questions and input from colleagues, as this provided a much better real-world perspective for many of the topics discussed.
This course was excellent, insightful, and a must for any identity professional! John is a fabulous instructor who is well versed in Microsoft Identity and passionate about the subject which he demonstrates in his instruction and preparation of this course.Additionally the post class materials were an unexpected bonus value to be able to reconstruct the learning experience in our own environments. Thank you! Attending remotely by Zoom was excellent, convenient, comfortable, and cost efficient.
John is an awesome instructor with deep knowledge on the subject. He explains the concepts really well and keeps you engaged, especially the labs which are very well built and help in understanding the concepts. This is one of the best online trainings I have attended. This is an awesome course.Learning privately as a team works for me as I enjoy online learning especially with the team, as you are able to share your experience and learn as a group.
John has a lot of knowledge both technically and as a teacher. His way of teaching makes it possible that people with different technical backgrounds can participate and everyone gets the attention he needs. Definitely a must if you want to learn more about how Azure really works in the field of Identity Management, B2B and B2C.
While prefering the more personal way of teaching, Zoom is a very good alternative especially considering you’re working with all kinds of colleagues around the globe.
Excellent. It was a great course, John is an excellent instructor with a lot of detail in his explanations of the topics, and his expertise was really helpful. Learning privately as a team helps to create and expand our network at the company.
Everything was handled in an excellent way. Very clear also for people with low Azure knowledge. The benefit of learning as a team on a private course is we can share experience and working scenarios.
The training was absolutely superb and I genuinely enjoyed each and every moment of it. The content was extremely informative and incredibly useful. I have attended several trainings before but I can’t recall any of them having such a strong impact. John’s knowledge and experience in the identity space were extremely helpful and intuitive.I will surely recommend this training to all my colleagues and friends. I, myself, would love to attend future training organized or featured by John. The course was perfect.
John is excellent in all areas and the content and labs are great and up-to-date. I highly recommend!
Learning via Zoom worked well. As an IT team doing a private course, we connected afterwards via MS Teams.
Great course and instructor. Paul did an excellent job instructing and making the material interesting. Great mix of humor, help, and teaching.
Instructor Paul did a great job explaining MIM, and his knowledge of the material and real world scenarios was excellent. Having a private course helped all attendees understand our environment together.
I found the course great. It provided clear and concise information while letting me have a hands-on approach with the use of the VMs. Learning online self-paced worked well for me as most of the time I studied this course outside of work hours. It allowed me to go back to previous modules that I needed to work on more. As MIM can get quite complicated with many “moving parts” at times, the images created to explain certain processes and information were incredibly helpful.
The course was logically organized for real-world examples, and insights from the instructor, Paul, made that more applicable to our environments. Paul was always available for questions and assistance in the labs with clear and concise explanations for whatever arose in the class. Learning remotely was seamless and there were no distractions of a in-person class. This allowed focused concentration.
Paul was a fantastic instructor! He was very entertaining and made the material more palatable than it probably has a right to be. The course material was spot on. The experience of learning by Teams was great and learning this way is my preference.
The course was wonderful and the trainer (Paul) was fantastic too. The training relates to my current role at my organization and it will help me in performing my daily activities more efficiently. The lab modules are very good and gave me hands-on experience to learn the stuff seamlessly. I would highly recommend this to anyone who would like to learn MIM in-depth.
Due to the changed meeting methods, it was good to attend by Teams and take the course from the comfort of my home. I did not face any issues.
This course was incredible. Just what I was looking for. The modules directly pertain to my job and day to day.
The lab environment was perfect. Being a hands-on learner, it gave me the opportunity to work out of my comfort zone without worrying about potential impacts to my organization if I made a mistake. Paul was a fantastic instructor and very enthusiastic about the content which helps greatly when listening to lengthy lectures. I would highly recommend this to anyone, and am excited to pursue other training opportunities with Oxford Computer Training.
The class was run fine remotely by Teams. No complaints.
Paul was an excellent instructor and was super knowledgeable about MIM and all it encompasses. He answered every question that I had along the way before I could even ask, and had a lot of patience with the questions I did ask – and the MIM portal I ended up breaking! He made the 8 hour days entertaining (as entertaining as you can make MIM) and I would recommend him to anyone.
Learning live via Teams definitely worked for me because Paul was very engaging and consistently checked to make sure we were following.
Excellent instructor. The course was informative and very advanced. It has helped me to get some points clear and get an overall picture of MIM. The labs were clear and documented. Overall a nice experience.
Excellent. The course was very well structured and very infomative. The knowledge I gained will allow us to administer our MIM system.
Course content was excellent and clearly delivered by Paul, the instructor. Any issues we had with labs were discussed transparently so the rest of the group could benefit from the solutions. The experience via Teams was great.
Excellent. The instructor, Paul Captainino, was great! He kept the training interesting and was very detailed when covering the course material. Would definitely recommend this course to colleagues.
Excellent. I liked the experience of learning by Teams, Paul (the instructor) makes it very interesting. I think attending the course privately with my colleagues will make it easier for us to help each other in the future.
Paul (the instructor) was very engaging and definitely made me want to take more of the online classes. I’d definitely recommend learning remotely live via Teams. Thank you again! It was great and I appreciate Paul keeping his camera on to keep us engaged.
Paul is a top notch trainer and the MIM Foundation course was a plethora of highly valuable knowledge-share! I would recommend learning remotely by Teams. As a Pacific user, the Eastern start times were difficult, but the technology for delivery was easy and made it very flexible.
Excellent. Great course, full of content, sometimes it was so much information constantly flowing it was hard to keep up! Learning via Teams was great.
My instructor was very thorough and every question that I thought to ask was addressed and answered. I completed the online self-paced course – it was great, everything was very clear and could not have asked for anything more. I want to especially thank Mark, Moth and Julie for all their hard work through all my questions.
I really liked the structure of the course. I liked to watch the lessons in 1.25 speed which worked pretty good. I loved the labs and I did those with the pdf and then watched the video to see if I did it right, and to see if they added any information to the steps.I really appreciate that my personal tutor sent me an email at the beginning introducing himself and telling me how I could get in contact if I needed help.
When I was enrolled in the course I was afraid of not learning due to language, but the instructor Paul was generous and patiently explained. After a year of pandemic, studying remotely via Teams works well.
The course was engaging and the huge amount of information was communicated in such a manner that I was able to follow and understand – not an easy task considering the subject. I liked learning remotely by Teams better than classroom courses – if anything, it was better online, since conversation between trainees is limited. For me the course was just perfect.
The training was an excellent opportunity to hear, learn and even have a hands on experience with MIM. The instructor, Mr Captainino, is an excellent teacher. His preparation for the course was outstanding. His knowledge on the subject is of a depth I could only admire. His capacity to keep us concentrated on the subject even if not in the same classroom, was remarkable. It was amazing to experience online training at this level.
The course was well presented and easy to follow. The labs cemented the learning. A big thank you to Hugh and Andi for answering all my queries in a timely manner and at unsocial hours too (the joys of late night studying).
Excellent. Learning online didn’t feel any different from a classroom – we have had the instructor Paul onsite for live training before and I didn’t feel that learning remotely was any less useful. I’d recommend learning this way.
The content of this course far exceeds that of the official documentation, and the labs demonstrate the content. Paul’s ad-hoc diagrams are gems!!! Can we get Paul’s diagrams published formally?! The course worked well remotely via Teams. Using Azure VMs also helps so no VPN usage – big bonus.
Paul delivered a nice course. Thanks a lot.
Paul, the instructor, was great and did an excellent presentation. He also helped me through the labs and gave us many tips.
As the third course in the MIM series, I was looking forward to it. Paul is an excellent trainer and I find the content and pace of the course is just right for me. I prefer in person courses as a rule but the online experience was really good, and well supported by the trainer. And definitely the fewest (0) technical problems I have had on an online course!
Very pleased with course. As someone who hadn’t even heard of MIM several weeks ago, I feel like I now know my way around enough to begin learning more how MIM at my company is implemented. The self-paced learning was particularly beneficial to someone like myself with no background. I was able to read through each lesson prior to listening to it, and then re-play sections as needed.
The quality of information was amazing and it gave me a deeper understanding about MIM. Paul did a great job in teaching all things!
This is one of the most impressive classes I have ever had the pleasure of taking. John takes the time to go into a significant amount of detail, covering every major scenario for each identity topic. The labs are extensive and allow the student to truly breakdown and understand each step of the process. The training experience is further enhanced by the ease at which John takes complex topics and simplifies them for all participants. Great course, John!
Instructor is extremely knowledgeable in course content (and beyond) and is able to take student real-world questions and answer questions and demonstrate solutions. Very much impressed with course labs. Labs challenge without spoon-feeding you every little step. They give you a chance to think about the answers and apply what you have learned. Also appreciated not wasting time, with extended lunches or quitting early. Really got our money’s worth.
Top notch instructor and course. Well done.
This class was very well-handled. The small size and interactivity makes it easier to follow along and interact with the class. Usually online training is just power points, large numbers of users with unmuted lines and nothing but talking avatars.
I like the labs and I like having the ability to setup our own after class, even if just for a baseline reference when troubleshooting more complicated real world scenarios. I suspect I can look back in my lab and see what I need to find when troubleshooting.
Everyone is different, and for me the online class in this format works much better than having to travel. And it’s opportunity to train more of my team, because if we had travel we probably would only have had one engineer attend.
The course was great. It connected several gaps that I had in my knowledge of OAuth2 and OIDC. Also very insightful for the AD Connect and Azure piece as I do not manage that area. The course exceeded my expectations, very helpful.
Enjoyed the class, I found it very beneficial.
The course was a very refreshing deep dive into some of the more technical details of authentication and Azure AD. Looking forward to reflecting back on some of the material as I implement better security in my work Azure AD environment.
Very good, high quality course, with an instructor knowing his stuff and very good in explaining the content. Very recommendable for others, with identity as work area.
John is a great instructor and knows exactly how to deliver the training and is brilliant at diving in to fix issues also.
Intense pack of information about different authorization and authentication protocols in 5 days. How to implement and troubleshoot them in different scenarios. John has done huge work with the labs which are working perfectly. Really enjoyed the course and now I know much more than before.
The best that you can have is that the instructor is far on top of the content. This is what I’ve seen here – John is absolutely on top here. He not only knows what he is telling, he stands for! So he provides a full trust about his content. Exercises are well prepared and also fit what he has explained just before. To my mind, definitely one of the best courses I’ve ever joined. Fantastic week! Thanks a lot!
John is very knowledgeable in the subjects he undertakes. I have to admit that this course was the most in-depth I’ve ever attended. Sometimes way deeper than I ever imagined but somehow John manages to keep it simple to understand.
The course is fast-paced as there is a lot of material to cover, but the instructor, Paul, has been exemplary in tackling this challenge and successfully explained the underlining flows of information, showed practical examples and assisted with lab materials when required. I managed to understand and learn all the points which I had targeted at the beginning of the course. The experience of learning remotely by Teams was good.
Learning online, self-paced was a good experience as it allowed me to attend a course most of the time, but not be completely offline. The content of the lessons is explained in a very good way without the need of reading too much in the manual.
Excellent. Paul is an informative instructor that knows the MIM tool better than most people. I would highly recommend taking any course from Paul. Learning remotely by Teams worked well for me.
Excellent. Instructor was excellent with a lot of knowledge.
Well paced and well designed training. It creates a solid expectation early on and goes through teaching how to reach those expectations. Learning through Teams was great and easily accessible.
Excellent instructor. We were just with two in class, but the instructor Paul kept teaching like he was for a huge audience. I felt very comfortable with that, all aspects of the course are touched and there was plenty of room for questions.Learning live via Teams works fine, I can do the labs on my own machine, with plenty of screen real estate. I watch a lot of YouTube tutorials and this is kind of the same but with the possibility to ask questions right away.
Excellent. Paul was a great instructor, very knowledgeable and with excellent delivery. I would highly recommend this one-day course. It was my first time learning by Teams. Worked perfectly. All good.
The MIM Expert course is the perfect finishing touch to the other two courses, and definitely leaves you feeling empowered to solve much more complex identity problems. Beyond this point, there isn’t anything in MIM that scares me anymore.
I really appreciated that this course had a lot of “assumed knowledge”, which gave me every opportunity to demonstrate to myself that I’d overcome some steep learning curves along the way.
I can’t recommend Paul highly enough as an instructor. He has an incredible grasp on the more complicated concepts in the product, and his experience shows in his delivery of the information. I don’t think there’s any one concept that I didn’t understand how to use as an expert would.
I recommend learning live via Teams. It gave me plenty of time to stare-and-compare details in the lab environment to my own production and dev environments.
As usual, Paul dumped tons of useful information in 4 days with efficiency. He’s truly one of the best instructors I’ve ever met.
The course was an excellent way of gaining in-depth knowledge about MIM. Paul Captainino’s knowledge of the system and of the course materials is first class and his explanations are excellent. The labs are detailed and well put together and give excellent hands-on experience with the system.
Learning remotely by Teams worked extremely well. The presentation was clear and easy to see and hear, help was available immediately whenever needed, and we were even able to work around a couple of other commitments in my calendar.
The class was extremely packed with info. It really de-mystified MIM to at least a manageable degree. Paul was a fantastic instructor, extremely knowledgeable in the product and very good at helping us to paint a mental picture of what is actually happening with MIM. I’d absolutely recommend learning remotely.
5-star course and 5-star instructor! Nothing to add. Instructor was teaching us – not just presenting the “knowledge”. Definitely recommended!
Paul, the instructor, is beyond excellent as usual. I’ve learned a lot this week. Excited to apply it to our MIM!
Very good, well worth the money. I enjoyed it. Studying self-paced allowed me to break as and when I needed to or wanted to and to go back over anything where I might have missed something or perhaps ‘tuned out’ for a while. Excellent.
The online course was excellent and allowed me to stop when needed to review topics more in-depth and do the labs at my pace.
In my roughly 20+ years in the IT industry, this was by far the best class I have taken. Typically, a lot of classes marked as “advanced” in any way, don’t always meet everyone’s expectations. The level of detail on everything was fantastic, and all of the material being kept up to date to even include recent preview features was greatly appreciated. The labs were all set up in a way that you were given enough information to succeed, but you had to actively engage to complete them. This by far helps with retention in learning new information.
Not only did the class meet my expectations in content provided, it far exceeded it.
The masterclass is excellent. It is the most in-depth content related to the management of identity in the Microsoft arena that I have seen around. I am very satisfied!
I’m new to almost all of it, so found it challenging to hold onto all the terms, but the course has offered me the foundation I need to help me explore and learn about our implementation of MIM. The one-on-one call with Hugh was very helpful. Thank you!
The course covered what I expected: the foundation of MIM and maybe a bit more. The instructor was very enthusiastic and helpful until the very end of the last day.
Amazingly thorough course, and a very engaging instructor. He was always ready to answer questions and keep the subject interesting even after 6 hours of information overload. The switch between working the labs and receiving information helps in keeping focused doing the course.
Paul, the instructor, was at his best. Great to hear all that knowledge and the excitement. Love the MIM courses.
A very interesting course with real life examples in the labs and a great instructor. For me, it would be better to attend the course in the classroom but during these days attending via Teams is a great experience. Learning together privately and working as a team is beneficial for everyone. We can share our experience.
Excellent training. Instructor Paul is amazing. He speaks very clearly about techniques, he’s confident and knows what he teaches. And he has great sense of humour 🙂 Private training was worth it for me and my teammates. I’ve learned new things, we got an opportunity to deep-dive into the Azure AD Connect and Azure AD identity.
Excellent instructor – knowledgeable and enthusiastic. Remote learning by Teams works well. Having a private course gave us the ability to discuss company specific settings and configuration.
A great course which was brought every day with incredible energy.
Great information and great teacher!!!!! I really enjoyed the training. Paul, the instructor, was able to keep us focused on the course details with his energy. Having a private course with my colleagues was great! Together we learned a lot.
Great! I finished all the courses in the video training series. Lots of in-depth details, well presented and explained. Easy to follow. Thanks!
This is a great course led by a fantastic instructor. The course is well structured and all labs run flawlessly. It helped me understand the fundamentals of MIM. Most importantly, Paul (the instructor) makes the learning experience fun and engaging. He is knowledgeable, funny and always willing to help. I can’t wait to take the Advanced and Expert courses.
The experience of learning live via Teams was good. I had zero issues and I could do it at home.
Great examples of how this complicated product works. Excellent instructor – no question was too small…
Learning live via Teams was great. It was just like as in the classroom except at my house!
My online tutor, Hugh Simpson-Wells, was excellent. I like his courses, he is well informed and provides the extra information I need to make it click in my head. Learning online, self-paced works for me. The course itself was well done and laid out.
Excellent. I really like the way the instructor teaches the course – he tells a lot, but also leaves enough room for questions. This was the second time I attended training using Teams and for me it works very well.
The self-paced online Azure AD Connect Masterclass is a really great option for those who cannot spare the time to attend a traditional classroom style course. I have been dipping in and out of the course material for the last few months now and re-capping on certain aspects of the course.
The great thing about this option is it saved me from having to rely on using my own personal notes. The course content was spot on and a great eye opener into the mechanics behind how the AAD Connect tool works. Anyone who uses this tool would benefit from this course.
Lastly, there were two instructors who delivered the content. Both were very knowledgeable on their subject areas. I will look forward to seeing some of the new material that OCT release!
Paul was an excellent instructor. I gained a great deal of knowledge from this course. Learning by Teams worked very well.
This was excellent, Paul (the instructor) is great and I would highly recommend him. The course materials were spot on.
Excellent! Paul did a great job of keeping the course interesting, which is a hard task considering it was a MIM course :). Overall, a useful learning experience. Everything was organized and scheduled perfectly.
Paul, the instructor, has a very motivating manner, takes the time to answer questions, and is happy to help with problems during the lessons. For some time now we are used to working remotely, so learning by Teams is no problem. I would recommend it.
It was a very interesting course and I learned a lot. The instructor was very good, very clear and helpful with everything. Working with Teams went very well. Also the VM online were a great way to do the hands-on exercises.
Excellent! It was weird in the beginning to learn via Teams, but after a while I got used to the remote course, and for me it worked well.
Paul, the instructor, did a great job! He has a great understanding of the material and did a wonderful job assisting with the labs, which are quite involved! It was very convenient to learn live by Teams and to not need to worry about traveling (true at any time, but especially now, of course). There were adequate breaks and the pace of the course worked well.
It gave me a great overview of Azure AD Connect and practical experience of the system’s capabilities far beyond the official Microsoft docs.
Great! The course was a very informative one and packed full of useful content. I really enjoyed the course and I think it gave me a nice portion of knowledge about MIM.
Once again Paul, the instructor, has been extremely informative and clear and has provided a great view of the components of the MIM in the Advanced course.
Great trainer- I had him for both the MIM Foundation and the MIM Advanced course.
Course ran well remotely. This was the best training option during Covid.
Paul was excellent as always, and presented the material in an energetic way. It was great to get a full picture of everything MIM offers.
Paul was great in explaining the core concepts and walking through some of the most complex concepts. I especially loved how he re-iterated the core concepts thereby etching it in memory. I learnt a lot that I didn’t know about Azure AD Connect, and will highly recommend it to my colleagues.
Excellent course delivered by an instructor with intimate knowledge of the product and extensive real world experience. Learning by Teams worked just as well as sitting in dedicated classroom.
The course was great, and learning via Teams was great. The instructor Paul was awesome too – he really knows his identity.
Great instructor!! Animated and keeps his audience engaged. Very Knowledgeable! Attending the course via Teams worked very well.
Paul is a very knowledgeable and engaging instructor. I thoroughly enjoyed the subject matter and Paul’s instruction. Attending the course via Teams worked perfectly.
The course was a great overview of all the different capabilities and features of Azure AD, and the instructor Paul was very entertaining.
The experience of learning via Teams was good; I encountered no problems.
As usual the instructor Paul was great and very knowledgeable when answering questions or if I had a problem.
It is the first time I have done a course remotely via Teams. I would definitely attend a course remotely again and, in fact, it would be my preference.
Excellent Teacher. I like that he explained in simple words. It was very easy to learn. Learning via Teams worked perfectly.
Perfect, the course is amazing. The content, the instructor is really professional. Really the best course.
Excellent experience. The instructor was great, he went over every little detail needed and answered every question we had.
I am very pleased with this course. Labs, videos and the other course material were very good, and easy to follow and understand.
I really liked the experience of learning online. It was very good to be able to do the course at your own pace, and to go through the labs and videos more than one time if something was not clear the first time. So I would recommend it.
The course was so good and the instructor was excellent. I learned so much about Azure, and the content was so clear. Learning remotely was good – no problems.
This course is so good, and I think Paul is the best!
Paul is a dynamic instructor who clearly knows his trade. He makes the lecture sections entertaining, and lends lab assistance in a very friendly way.
This is my second course with Paul, and I hope to be able to take at least one more with him! I enjoy listening to his instruction, and the experience he brings to the teaching helps a lot.
Wonderful instructor, very knowledgeable on the subject matter. Learning via Teams was not much different than in-person learning.
Paul [the instructor] was great. There was a lot of information in a very short period of time but he really helped me. I am very new to all this but he made me feel comfortable as best as he could.
I think learning via Teams is great – it lets you communicate with one another if you want to, and I really enjoyed having someone there to always help me.
Thanks to Paul for being an excellent instructor and for shifting your hours to make this class work for us.Did learning by Teams work well for you? Yes, this worked well for my situation. I have attended remote courses before.
Excellent experience! Very informative and deep course! I am full of useful information and my neurons and synapses are dancing foxtrot now!
Excellent! 5 stars.
Excellent! 5 stars.
Excellent! 5 stars.
As always, Paul [the instructor] was excellent in both knowledge and delivery. Learning via Teams was very effective and convenient.
Excellent! 5 stars.
As always Paul [the instructor] exceeded my expectations. Thanks for your patience and the four days. Learning via Teams worked great.
Very detailed, techniques in visual studio benefited me a lot. The instructor delivered concise explanations with very little waffle and varied the four days well.
Excellent! Five stars.
The instructor was very knowledgeable about the course. He was there to answer all our questions and did a fantastic job in explaining/demonstrating scenarios.
Excellent Teacher. I like that he explained in simple words. It was very easy to learn. How was the experience of learning via Teams? Perfect.
Paul’s a great instructor and my co-workers and I noticed the level of knowledge he had as he explained all the course. How was the experience of learning via Teams? It was clear and the lag or technicalities are almost non-existent.
Paul [the instructor] was extremely knowledge and made certain to focus on areas he thought especially important. NOT Boring!
Thank you Paul, your knowledge and delivery of the material was excellent! The course was relevant and insightful and can definitely be used to improve our infrastructure and future migrations.
It was easy to engage with Paul whilst sitting in the comfort in my own home. I would recommend remote internet learning to everyone because it was easy to interact either by asking questions directly or utilising the chat feature in Microsoft Teams.
The course was very enriching and the instructor was excellent. Private training worked well as our team members have different opinions.
Training was well worth the cost no complaints here. Website was fantastic, video quality was top notch. Teachers were well spoken and easy to understand.
Great course and, as always, [the instructor] Paul was on usual form. Solid technical detail and banter.
As always, Paul [the instructor] was excellent in both knowledge and delivery. Learning via Teams was very effective and convenient.
Paul [the instructor] clearly knows his MIM, and he makes the subject entertaining enough so as not to lose attention. Private training seems like a better experience as you can have open discussions about your current implementation or plans.
Excellent course. Really helped me get a better understanding of MIM and what it can do/how to configure it.
The course was great. I am in the process of re-installing Azure AD Connect to replace a very old version, and the information from the course has caused me to make significant changes to how I configure the new implementation.
Thank you Paul! I am so glad to have taken this course with you. I learned a lot.
Attending over the internet worked well for me. I was well connected with my colleagues and the instructor while attending remotely.
A good course. I learned exactly what I was hoping to learn and where to look for items such as scripting that will need a little more work as I work though some use cases for clients.
Good course, diving into more complex features of MIM. Very good to be able to study at my own pace and being able to focus on the most interesting/relevant parts of the course.
An excellent course that helped me understand MIM. It’s cool that you get a tutor in case of any questions. I loved the fact that course is split into 8 modules. Videos are very helpful also.
The MIM Advanced course provides great information on how to further configure MIM using either the MIM portal or the MIM service. Both of these are very beneficial to my new position since we will be working on enhancing and maintaining our MIM services.
Paul was our instructor again. He provides a lot of information that was not mentioned in the documentation that is very beneficial. During our classes, I asked multiple questions and he provided great insight and knowledge in answering them.
The instructor Paul is awesome and really knows his stuff! Learning live by Teams really worked for me, I did it from home so I was not distracted at all.
Paul is a great instructor. He knows a lot about the material, and if you ask him a question about how you want to implement it in your environment, he can give a good answer, what you should and what you shouldn’t do. He’s a great speaker. I had a good laugh and lots of fun in the world of MIM.
When I come back to the office we are going to start implementing MIM, and in this Foundation course you get more about the configuration, the MAs, and the rules you want to apply. I would recommend this course.
We have an implementation of MIM. The people who look after it at the moment have very little knowledge. We sort of click here and click there and hope we’re doing the right thing. I’ve really picked up a lot this week.
Paul is a great lecturer, he delivers his lectures well, he knows his subject. You get that feeling that there’s nothing he can’t answer. He’s been around the block with this particular product. Very good, very impressed.
Absolutely, now we can definitely start expanding on our current implementation. Now we can go the next step. Oh, definitely I would recommend this training, there’s no question.
Now I know the fundamentals about how MIM functions, and this will greatly help me in the future as I build my capability with MIM. Learning online was great. The course material is easy to follow and to understand.
Very informative and engaging with good pace. The instructor was friendly and patient with helping when I had issues with the labs.
Excellent. It was my first time learning remotely via Teams, but it worked well, and I could focus. I was comfortable and in my own space. I did not need to rush, and could review things as many times as I wanted.
The MIM foundation course gives great insight on the basic configuration of MIM and how all of the pieces interact together. Since I will be working with MIM for my new position, the knowledge provided in the course will be very beneficial. During the training, our instructor (Paul) did not just lecture about concepts but provided schematics and a demonstration on how these functions worked – both of which are great methods of teaching.
Learning online, self-paced was excellent. Excellent support during the Christmas holidays to get my online course up and running. Thank you again Mark and Andi! The lab environment worked very well, and the material was well composed. Also a huge thanks to Julie who made a refund when I accidently overpaid.
A great course covering the fundamentals of MIM, which gave me the foundation to continue with more advanced topics on MIM. I’m very satisfied with being able to take the course online at my own pace at hours suitable for me.
Paul is an excellent instructor and answered every question we had. Learning with colleagues on a private course was great as we had a few different groups represented.
A private course seems like a better experience as you can have open discussions about your current implementation or plans.
Excellent. A very broad topic so it’s easy to be overwhelmed. The instructor Paul’s high level of comfort with the course and product meant he found any errors I made in the labs in seconds – he clearly knows it inside and out.
Excellent course. Really helped me get a better understanding of MIM and what it can do and how to configure it.
Paul, the instructor, was awesome. He explained how AD Connect works in details with diagrams that were easy to understand and flowed. When I ran into a lab issue, he worked off line to help figure it out.
We are looking at implementing MIM and we needed to get some more knowledge in-house. So my UK colleague Googled ‘MIM training’ and found you and here we are together training this week.
I was really confused at first about how MIM synchronization works, and being on this course helped me understand in which order things are synchronized, what the difference with exports, delta import, full import – those sorts of things. It’s been really an eye-opener.
Paul talks a lot, but that’s great! He’s good, and funny with how he presents stuff and very helpful when you get stuck. It’s a great course – it’s really great being here. The facilities are great, and the food is great.
Excellent course. Attending remotely via Teams worked well – just as good as attending, except I had to provide my own food!
I found the information was exactly what I needed to learn. The instructor Paul was flexible and willing to go the extra mile in answering questions. It was useful to have real world examples in the course.
Great. This course gives me a great understanding of the product and how it works, and will assist me to manage our MIM environment.
Excellent. I enjoyed being able to go at my own pace and in my own time.
Course was very good and gave a good understanding of the MIM product. The documentation is very good and the labs are easy to follow. It was good to have the videos of the labs to refer to when issues arose, and to use as a review tool as well.
The course was awesome!
Excellent. A great class and great instructor.
Excellent course. Learning online, self-paced worked very well for me. I liked being able to pause, take a break and not have to keep up with everyone as I would have had to in a classroom-based course. I only needed to contact my instructor once when I got a little off track with the labs. Andi replied promptly and reassured me that I was on the right path.
The instruction was great. I liked the explanation of the more complicated topics. I really like self-paced learning and the ability to go back and review a video on the more complicated modules.
The course content was spot on! Paul is an excellent instructor and makes the course interesting and keeps you engaged with his brilliant humor. I have thoroughly enjoyed it!
New coffee machine is great!
Thoroughly enjoyed this class. A good mix of lectures, labs and banter.
Classroom and facilities were great, with a nice selection of drinks. Thanks ‘Captain’.
Paul is an excellent instructor. Very knowledgeable, and has a great personality. He deserves a new bike!
I was my first time doing a course remotely. It worked perfectly fine.
The labs were great. The instructor Paul was clear and very helpful. He would park unrelated questions well, and continue with the training – those parked questions were answered during lab time. Great.
We are implementing MIM in our organization. One of our partners had done this MIM training in Oxford, and he suggested I should come here, to the source of the expertise, to be explained in detail how MIM works. It’s a difficult system to understand how it works. The instructor is a very experienced guy, there is so much material to get through. He’s joking sometimes and showing explanations very well – an excellent lecturer. I have learned so much I can carry into our MIM project. It’s a very worthwhile course.
I like to take this course in the classroom, I like to be able to ask questions directly to the lecturer.
Excellent. Very full information provided by a trainer who clearly knows his material well. Good venue, excellent food.
Great content and great instructor. Complex topic, but the instructor managed to explain it in a way that makes it all understandable. Great classroom and facilities.
Great course, knowledgeable instructor and very personable. Location was relaxing and a great environment for learning.
A good experience and great information. MIM is such a complicated product to try to pick up by yourself, so having someone lead you through it, step by step to give you a good grounding is probably essential. The tutor, Paul, is engaging, energetic, and keeps the momentum going. Now I’ve done this course, I’ll be able to more proactively keep things running and fix problems when they occur.
Best value course I have been a part of recently. I’m determined to come back for Advanced course. Paul is the best instructor I could come across.
The course has given me ideas as to how I can change my environment in the future for the better. It’s opened up my eyes in an area I thought I had a really good grasp of; John has clarified the nooks and crannies. John is thorough and complete in his answers.
A really great experience, a worthwhile course and worth the investment.
Excellent class. John covered everything I wanted to know, and did a great job of explaining all the details and nuances.
John Craddock is extremely knowledgeable on all sorts of legacy and modern authentication protocols, and is able explain them and their advantages/disadvantages with real world example scenarios. I highly recommend this class for anyone that is interested in the subject, beginner or veteran.
Excellent! This class was well put together, and right on the money as far as problems we are facing. It helped tie together several loose ends regarding how the new cloud infrastructure and the old on premise infrastructure can be used together to create a both secure and user friendly environment.
Excellent content and very thorough. The course shows the background mechanics for application and session management in Azure. It fills in a lot of grey areas.
The course was excellent. John is extremely knowledgeable, and takes the time to understand his students and some of the pain points they are going through.
This course is great, just what I needed to know. If you need MIM training, you need to go to Oxford Computer Training because they are the MIM trainers!
The course gave me a good overview and understanding of even more of the stuff I need to fully understand.
Doing a private course with my colleagues it felt more comfortable asking questions, and it was nice to do it in a familiar environment.
A good course – engaging and detailed, providing a good operational understanding of the product.
Learning with colleagues on a private course meant we had personalized targeted training.
I’m glad I did this course online as there was an opportunity for me to review the presentations to help me really understand the material.I have time constraints but I was able to do it over several weeks.
Paul is a great teacher, really enthusiastic and knowledgeable about all things MIM! He’s happy to answer all questions and explain in detail not only why but how to implement the solution. It was very helpful to work through labs with colleagues on this private training.
Excellent. Paul is a fun instructor, he moves quickly but he explains in a way that’s easy to retain information and makes a dry topic fun.
Although I have spent some time working with Azure AD Connect in certain scenarios, I found it extremely useful to look at and find out about other features in Azure AD Connect that I haven’t used before. Lots of useful extra info as well, even in the areas that I thought I already knew!It was quite straightforward to use the online presentations and tutorials. The labs were good and all worked for me as described in the notes and demos.
