Ten IT pros from a global professional services company recently joined identity guru John Craddock via Zoom for a private Microsoft Identity Masterclass.
For international companies with a geographically dispersed workforce, private training is a valuable team-building event – a chance for colleagues to come together and learn together.
In October 2021, co-workers from Germany, India, Sweden, the UK and the US enjoyed 40 hours of intense training together over five days, to gain an in-depth understanding of Azure AD functionality, workflows and protocols.
As always, feedback from participants was excellent.
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 on a private course 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!
Christian, a Senior Consultant in the UK, said:
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.
Sofia, a Senior Consultant from the US, said:
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.
Patrick, a Senior Consultant in the US, said:
The Identity Masterclass was excellent. Nice deep dive into authentication methods and use with Azure AD. I 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, and that made it easier to discuss items in terms of projects we may be working on. 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!
Chandramohan, a Cloud Manager in India, said:
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.
Max, a Nordic Modern Modern Workplace Security Offering Lead from Sweden, said:
Very intense, very relevant, 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!
Genady, a Manager in Security Consulting (Digital Identity) in the US, said:
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.
Anoop, a Manager in India, said:
A five star course. Thank you very much John!
