At MOST, we offer a unique training experience:
Our Workshops are usually limited to between four and six participants
in a very informal, comfortable setting. We make every effort to
closely evaluate your needs and make sure that the Workshop content and
labs address real-life issues and scenarios. If you want to test
Authentication to Windows 2003 Server, Linux, or Novell eDirectory from
Mac OS X or Mac OS X Server, we'll set it up. If you'd like to configure a
managed switch, no problem.
We'll even help you repair/upgrade your Mac during a troubleshooting
workshop (if it's not under warranty). Our training room has an excellent mixture of current Macs and Xserves you'd likely find in most corporations or schools. We have the latest
Airport Extreme base stations for your MacBook Pro, MacBook, iBook or PowerBook. Why settle for a lecture or simulation when you
can have the real thing? Because we cap our attendance at six
for MOST Workshops, we can focus our energies on helping you achieve
real-world, practical, and cost-effective solutions for your work place.
One Participant to One Workstation: Although
some training companies advertise their sessions as "hands-on," they
don't make it clear in their brochures that you have to share a computer
with someone else or even two or three other attendees. At MOST, each
participant gets their own Macintosh (two for our Mac OS X Server Workshops),
as well as access to Active Directory Servers (if appropriate) or Fibre
Channel equipment (if appropriate). When we say Hands-On, we mean it!
Refreshments and Lunch/Dinner are included: We provide coffee throughout the day, bagels or donuts in the morning, as well as lunch for daytime workshops
and dinner for evening workshops. Soda is also
provided at no charge. Also, our traning center is located in one of the few commercial locations in Chicago with free street parking!
Post-Workshop Follow-up and Technical Support Plan:
After the Workshop, we'll be available over e-mail to answer any questions you might have. We'll also call you and drop you a line periodically to
see how you're doing. Any Workshop-related questions you might have will be answered by e-mail within 48 hours. We're committed to making sure that the solutions we
teach work for you.
Experienced, Flexible Instructors:
MOST Workshop Leaders are not only good teachers, they are some of the
finest Macintosh Administrators
in the country. With experience ranging from Advertising to large
corporate Networks, they've got the experience and cutting-edge
to help you achieve your goals. By evaluating your needs and listening carefully,
they tailor the Workshop to focus on solving the issues that vex you most.
Customized, Current Workshop
MOST, we develop our own curricula, not license it from another
company, nor do we print hundreds or
thousands of Guidebooks so that yours is six months or even years
out-of-date. We print our Guidebooks and burn our CD-ROMs on a
Workshop-by-Workshop basis. Updated
materials are available for a small fee at any time after you attend a
