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
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
Was at square one with Group Policy.
Knew that if you didn’t use Group Policy correctly, you could mess things up “really fast, in a big way.”
It will save time and money not having to go out to all the desktops to make all those changes.
I got great value out of the class...now I know a lot.
In the long run, we're going to save a lot of man hours.
Dennis Lorimor ESCO Corporation Portland, Oregon
3 years Group Policy experience
Wanted to refine techniques in locking down the desktop and centralize management
[I need] to take away local admin rights and bring them back to us.
The GP Preference extensions are awesome.
It was so, so awesome just to be here and learn what we did in these few days.
Mark Olszewski Technology Architect Great Falls Public Schools Great Falls, Montana
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.
Jeremy's classes are the best in the business.
Fred Woodbridge Office of the CIO State of Idaho
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
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.
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.
