Struggled with books for awhile, but “you can’t ask questions from a book.”
I learned a better way to roll out a new computer.
I got the personal attention I was looking for out of this class.
The money I paid for this class is going to be more than double or triple in value of what I got out of it.
Glen Davidson IT Operational Manager, Western Hemisphere An International Insurance Adjustment Firm
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
Had seen Group Policy in action, but needed more information to implement it.
Had been “banging his head” trying to make logon scripts work.
Had taken one of Jeremy’s classes before and returned to learn even more.
What I learned here...will definitely save time.
This was my second class with Jeremy...had a blast with [the first[ one...this one was even more beneficial to me.
Jeremy really knows what he's talking about...he keeps the class very entertained.
Chris Teston and Mike DeHeck Desktop Support Analysts Checkfree
Thought it would be a lot of refresher.
Needed to rework how he managed his test lab.
Turned out I learned a lot of new information, as well.
The GP Preferences were a big thing for me.
Applicable for anybody that is in a network management role at any level.
No comparison to [any] MOC classes.
Dennis Irvin Senior Network Administrator City of Lenexa Lenexa, Kansas
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 Vista's 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
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
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
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
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.
The GPanswers.com forum is closed now (thanks, spammers!)
But we encourage you to join us at LinkedIn in the “GPO Stuff” group.
Jeremy is regular there, and there is a reasonable system to prevent junk posts.
In all, we think it’s the right place to go for Group Policy-specific questions.
It’s a private group, but just JOIN it, and the owner should approve your request.
See you there !
-Jeremy Moskowitz, Group Policy MVP
