Advanced Microsoft Training
We focus on knowledge and being able to transition knowledge to ensure our customers are successful in the long run. This can include one-on-one training to formalized classroom settings. Designing and implementing is the easy part, ensuring that everyone is familiar and comfortable with the solution afterward has almost as significant of an outcome to the solution’s implementation.
Big Hat Group offers customized training options for Microsoft technologies either as stand-alone training or as part of a consulting agreement. Our offerings are based on customized courseware not authored by vendors. The intent with this approach is to make a more in-depth courseware that focuses on real world scenarios and more closely tracks product updates making scenarios more relevant.
Currently we offer courses in the following technologies:
- Microsoft Application Virtualization
- Microsoft User Experience Virtualization
- Windows Azure RemoteApp
Big Hat Group is hosting two new public classes for App-V 5.1 using our expert level training course maintained by App-V MVPs and taught by App-V MVPs known as Gridmastertraining.com. Using live virtual environments, the student is immersed in building their own virtual infrastructure, sequencing and deploying applications. Our courseware is designed to go over many real world scenarios so the student can get a better understanding of what considerations need to be accounted for when packaging and delivering isolated applications using App-V 5.x. Since the product is almost a complete re-write of the software we recommend this course to anyone who has worked with App-V in the past that wants to quickly understand the new product capabilities and behaviors. With practical examples you will see how these new features are implemented and managed. Since integration with Configuration Manager 2012 is a hot topic you will be introduced to application model fundamentals and insight into how to build a fully functioning App-V 5 application model.
The following public courses have been scheduled with a guaranteed to run status so you can be assured that the course date is not changing. We require a company P.O., credit card or cheque to reserve a seat and the cost is $3000 a seat regardless of classroom format.
Registration for the online class is limited to North America to ensure the quality of the online environment.
Classes can be hosted online using our custom built Hyper-V classrooms. Both courses will be taught by Kevin Kaminski who is a five time Microsoft MVP for Application Virtualization.
If you are booking the Calgary class we will be using the Best Western Suites Downtown Calgary (1330 8th Street S.W. Calgary, Alberta T2R 1B6) as the teaching facility. Contact kevin.kaminski [at] bighatgroup [dot] com about booking rates for a room or other recommendations in the area.
Private courses are usually viable for customers that have three or more students and want a more private and tailored experience. For example there might be a need to focus more on Configuration Manager 2012 scenarios or the implications of managing applications in a Remote Desktop Services environment opposed to a traditional desktop delivery of virtual applications. Feel free to contact kevin.kaminski [at] bighatgroup [dot] com to tailor a class to your needs today.
