Hundreds of IT professionals from universities, colleges and schools worldwide have benefitted from our industry-leading public, private, and online MIM and Azure training courses over the last few years.
Providing a secure and efficient IT infrastructure within a tight budget is a key priority for education organizations worldwide. And with a fast changing user base including students, teaching staff and alumni, IT staff face particularly complex identity and access management challenges.
That’s where training comes in! Building the skills and expertise of IT staff is a very cost effective way of overcoming technical and budgetary challenges.
Our complex identity management project could not have succeeded without Oxford Computer Training’s world-class training, The private on-site MIM Foundation course we had was not only cheaper, it allowed us to ask environment-specific questions about MIM and our unique installation. Let’s say we got more than our money’s worth! – IT Team Leader, University, US
Private identity training for university IT teams
Private training has proved particularly popular with universities over the last couple of years, and courses regularly get 100% 5-star ratings. For example, in late 2018 a team of 8 from a UK university all rated the MIM course we ran for them as 5-star training.
And private course customers keep coming back for more! For example, in February 2019, we ran the Azure AD Connect Masterclass as a private course at universities in Ireland and the US Virgin Islands – both of which were repeat customers! It was our instructor Paul’s third visit to the Irish university (previously he had taught the MIM Foundation and MIM Advanced courses), and it was his second visit to the university in the US Virgin Islands (previously he had taught the MIM Foundation course).
Instructor-led identity public courses for IT staff from education organizations – in the classroom and via Skype
All our MIM and Azure courses are available as public courses. And, with the exception of John Craddock’s Identity Masterclass, all public courses can be attended from anywhere via Skype, as well as in our UK and US classrooms.
The Microsoft Identity Masterclass with John Craddock was stellar and exactly what I hoped it would be, a launchpad for remaking my organization’s identity and access management approach to be driven by Azure AD. The lab environment was extremely well designed and full featured. The mix of lectures to labs was just right. – IT Manager, Community College, US
Online, self-paced training for IT staff from education organizations
The online, self-paced MIM Foundation course was brilliant from beginning to end. The videos were highly informative, I genuinely enjoyed learning from the tutor in these videos. The delivery, information and explanations provided throughout were excellent. The high standard of tuition in the videos made the experience very enjoyable. – Platform Analyst, University, UK
