Did you know that we run private, instructor-led MIM and Azure AD training courses for companies worldwide via Teams? And, in these unprecedented times, private training for teams of IT pros working from home is becoming increasingly popular.
This month alone, we have run two remote-only private courses for companies for whom we have previously run in-person private courses – one in Canada, one in the UK. And this week, our instructor Paul is teaching our MIM Advanced course to a team of eight IT consultants in Costa Rica who took our MIM Foundation online, self-paced course last week in preparation.
The private, remote-only Azure AD Connect Masterclass we ran earlier this month for a team of seven IT professionals at a UK company (for whom we have previously run several private courses) received 100% 5-star feedback.
Louis, Senior Consultant, said:
As always, Paul [the instructor] was excellent in both knowledge and delivery. Learning via Teams was very effective and convenient.
We also received great feedback from the five students who attended the private MIM Advanced course we ran for a company in Canada at the beginning of April, which was a follow-up to the MIM Foundation course we ran for them in Vancouver in January 2020.
Alex, Team Lead, said:
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.
We have also run many remote-only private courses for global companies with distributed IT teams. For example, we recently ran a combined MIM Foundation and MIM Advanced courses for IT professionals from a worldwide corporation who were based in the UK, the US and Israel.
Our instructor Paul Captainino said:
In consultation with our customer, we agreed the course content (in this case a combination of our MIM Foundation and MIM Advance courses). We chose the most appropriate time zone and everyone dialled in via Microsoft Teams.
The course worked really well as it enabled the different locations within the business to better understand specific local issues, as well as allowing us to address those issues while maintaining corporate standards.
There are many benefits to remote-only private courses at any time, but especially right now with so many people locked down and unable to get to the office.
Nancy, Senior System Analyst, from the US, said:
The course was excellent. Paul covered lots of information. He is very knowledgeable on the subject and I learned a lot from this training. It was great to have an instructor who is an expert in MIM and who could easily share his knowledge with our team.
The remote training worked well. All team members globally could attend and learn together. Being able to give everyone the training at once and hear others’ questions and comments was very valuable. Being able to combine parts of two courses (Foundation and Advanced) was also great as we could customize the training to be specific to what we needed.
Schlomo, Senior System Administrator from Israel, said:
The instructor was very professional. I found it very helpful for my work and hope I can come back for the MIM Expert course.
Learning remotely was a very good experience. Since we are working in the same company there were common questions but they all were regarding our environment from different views (SAP, Helpdesk, operations).
