Advanced Mac OS X IT Classes at the University of Utah
Starting this next month, the University of Utah's Technology Education department will be offering advanced Mac OS X IT classes. Â Currently we offer the the Support and Server Essentials classes which cover an introduction to the Apple Certified Support Professional and the Apple Certified Technical Coordinator certifications. Â On February 9th to the 11th we will be offering Mac OS X Deployment v10.5, which covers deploying your Macintosh systems initially, deploying the OS systems for various uses, and providing updates and maintenance for the Macintosh system. Â For any of you who manage large Mac labs or businesses that are migrating to or integrating Macs, this would be a great class for you attend. Â It is one of 4 tests required for the Apple Certified System Administrator certification.
