Windows 2003 network, lots of types of servers, including Exchange.
Wanted to learn how to install software.
I feel like our systems will be a lot more secure after taking this class.
I liked the hands on of being able to do it and know that you were here to answer questions.
You've got to see Jeremy in person!
Tammy Forte Systems Administrator
Had “messy” Group Policy.
Were hoping to learn both desktop and server techniques.
Are both Microsoft Certified Trainers.
Had we come to the class sooner, we could have avoided buying a lot of unnecessary software and security tools, saved time and customer and user frustration.
I think this class outweighs anything we've taken his year.
Coming together helped us a lot...we've had plenty of a-ha moments.
Steve Maslin and Debby Bruce Desktop Support and Server Manager Tampa International Airport Tampa, Florida
2 years Group Policy experience
Struggled with Microsoft docs trying to create a Central Store.
Wanted to do a lot, but thought they needed third-party products.
The price is well paid for in the first couple of days.
We'll be putting immediately to use the GPPEs.
It took Microsoft 30 pages to do what took Jeremy a minute and a half.
Aaron Hagman Washington Mutual Bank Seattle, Washington
Was using Group Policy to its “least advantage.”
Wanted to come to class with the staff so he can understand the “total power of Group Policy” and be sure he was getting the “real answer.”
We'll pay for our time there in the first couple of weeks after we get home.
For me as a manager, the only way I knew I was going to get the real answer was to come and sit through Jeremy's course.
Duane Kellinger MIS Manager Mercy Regional Medical Center Durango, Colorado
1 year Group Policy experience
1,000 desktops, several hundred laptops, and 8 or 9 business units
Moving from Novel to Microsoft and from an environment where everyone has admin rights to limited admin rights.
The original course showed me what was possible and how best to go about it.
We go through a lot of information on how it works...and a lot of real-world experience.
There's a lot of things I'll be able to use right off the bat.
Dan Palacios Windows Admin Department of Consumer and Business Services State of Oregon
Has multiple customers and networks that he needs to manage.
He is trying to figure out how to control what users do.
Tried to read Microsoft documents and had “not gotten anywhere.”
Group Policy training is important...because it makes your workforce more productive.
This class is a special class for Group Policy.
Good for small businesses because it makes my life...easier.
Mike Reagan Partner O'Regans, Inc.
600 users, 125 servers, and 625 desktops.
Had a lot of issues in their environment.
Had a lot of “crafty” solutions in place that didn’t always work.
Day 1-3...3 or 4 problems with instant solutions.
The Advanced class...[taught me] how we can deploy lots of public terminals.
Thousands and thousands of dollars in return investment.
Brian Reers Tech Op Team Leader Lee County Clerk of Courts Fort Myers, Florida
5,000 users and workstations, 3,500 of which are at one site.
Does nothing but GPOs all day long.
Had some printer deployment problems.
The second two days [Group Policy Catch-up] were awesome.
I have about two pages of stuff I want to go back and implement.
I've been to Group Policy courses before...this one I got the most out of.
The Unknown Administrator Federal Government Agency
4 months Group Policy experience
800 users, 700 PCs
Needed to disable hardware, applications, and games.
I finally figured out how we would block out USB ports and games and lockdown users. This alone made the entire class an extremely valuable and fun learning experience.
I learned how to use Vistas event viewer to track a single event in group policy. so easy but powerful! I learned how to set up various restrictions on a PC for different users. A tremendously valuable feature!
I can not wait to get back to the office and implement what I have learned. I highly recommend the whole week to anyone who has anything to do with Group Policy. Nothing beats these classes, nothing.
Mark Latham PC Support Specialist Mercy Regional Medical Center Durango, Colorado
Didn’t want to spend months and months learning.
Tried learning with Microsoft Technet.
We were INSTANTLY heads and shoulders above every other IT department in the state.
People were now calling US for help with their Group Policy questions.
