Joining a classroom experience
People learn best in different ways and one of our personal favorites is offering live courses in a classroom environment, open for public registration. Friends are made, experiences are shared and everyone learns a lot along the way.
Classroom training, our way
Why leave your office just to go to another office for a class? There are definite benefits of breaking out of your daily routine and environment and meeting other people working with SharePoint. Getting out of the corporate world for a week is refreshing and inspiring. Our public courses are held at hotels in destination cities across the U.S. You can spend the day digging deep into SharePoint, then take a breather and hit the sights that night with co-workers, family, classmates, or on your own! Or just relax with a good book and enjoy the peace and quiet and experience some YOU time!
What to expect…
It is an experience, not just a training course.
- Food! Our perspective on food is, “A well fed student is a happy student!” It isn’t that we simply provide breakfast, lunch, and snacks for our students, the meals we offer are actually events in themselves! We offer daily themed buffets, a large selection of beverages and all of the coffee you can consume. Meals are hosted on-site at the hotel and you can even munch while working if you so choose.
- Stuff! And who doesn’t like stuff? We will load you up with resources, links, materials, code samples and some cool goodies that are exclusive to our public classroom events. We are also quite fond of prize giveaway items that have a certain, special apple logo on it. 🙂
- One-on-one support! We take the time to make sure *you* get your questions answered and that you understand the materials. We are always ready and willing to review topics privately with you and provide support after class.
What to bring…
Every student is responsible for bringing his or her own workstation (typically a laptop). Each course information page lists what software should be installed on the workstation. No worries though, the software you will need is free, available as a trial or provided by us. We highly recommend that the workstation has Wi-Fi (we have a few spare Wi-Fi cards if needed). Oh, and there’s plenty of room at the table if you want to bring a mouse.
Each course has a different set of prerequisites and student workstation requirements. Please see individual course information pages, accessible from the Courses & Schedule page, for more details.
Depending on the venue, a discounted rate may be available for you to use at the hotel hosting our event. Check the Courses & Schedule page for a direct link to the event page that will have more information about the destination, including hotel location, airport information and local activities.
