Evan N, a Systems Engineer from Kansas, USA, recently took our Microsoft Identity Manager MIM Foundation training as an online course. Evan tells us how he discovered our MIM training series and why he thinks our MIM Foundation course is “awesome”.

We use MIM heavily in our environment to automate all of our account provisioning and business logic, but we didn’t have anyone operating it and were instead relying on an outside contractor. I was seeking self-study resources for MIM, but they are few and far between. Eventually, I decided to seek out formal training, and a former co-worker recommended Oxford Computer Training’s courses.
Actually, I did not intend to complete the training as quickly as I did. But the delivery and organization of the material was so smooth that, when coupled with my strong interest in MIM and desire to learn it, I found it very hard to stop once I started. The experience of learning online, self-paced was fantastic. The pacing was just right and the labs were very accessible.
It’s been by far one of the greatest training courses I have ever experienced. With a topic as deep and as wide as MIM, this course covers everything you need to know to get started with the product. At first, MIM is quite difficult to grasp due to a lack of clarity in most of the public documentation. But this course absolutely, 100%, solves that problem, and then some. Everything is organized in a clear and concise manner in the videos, and the labs are structured in such a way that they parallel real-world implementations and business needs specifically.
I will be able to use what I have learned immediately. I understand a lot of our existing MIM infrastructure a lot better now, and that will help me to build our identity solutions. I’d started out barely knowing how to navigate the portal. Now, I’m much more confident in knowing where to go and what to do.
More awesome training to come!
The online MIM Foundation training was awesome. Simply awesome. I’ll need some time to let the skills I’ve developed in the MIM Foundation course settle in, and then I’ll take the MIM Advanced online course self-paced as well. My plan is to space them out so that I can garner some real-world experience in between courses. I cannot wait to take the MIM Advanced course.
I can’t recommend the MIM Foundation course or OCT’s training more!
