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
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

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
Was confused by Group Policy in the beginning.
Needed to lock down specific applications and desktops.
Took only the Group Policy Essentials class this time.
I learned a lot of things I didn't know about it.
Definitely worth sending someone...your people will work faster and smarter.
I will definitely be back for the remainder of the courses.
Cameron White IT Department Gate Petroleum Jacksonville, Florida
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.

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.
Chris Teston and Mike DeHeck Desktop Support Analysts Checkfree
Has been working with GPOs since Windows 2000 and wanted to learn more advanced information.
Had a slow log on time back at the home office.
I figured out why my [slow logon time] was happening. I VPN'ed in...and fixed the problem.
I'm glad I didn't skip [the Essentials class].
If you're on the fence about coming to this class, an deven if you've been doing GP for awhile...it would be well worth your time to make the trip.

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 about 4,000 users and uses LanDesk.
Wanted to get upgraded to Group Policy 2.0.
Has issues with HIPPA compliance.
A quick drag and drop Group Policy...will save a lot of money.
[Perfect for] desktop or server administrators.
