Why our App-V Training Classes are Finally Upgraded to “Masters” Level

When App-V 5 was released two years ago, I blogged about how we were renaming our training classes as “Experts” level, rather than the Masters Level designation that we used for the App-V 4.6 classes.

The idea was that while I had been working with pre-releases for almost a year, I knew that we didn’t know enough about the completely rewritten product.  At the time, I was guessing it would take about a year of digging through the mud to uncover enough about how the product really worked under the hood to be comfortable enough to consider the product mastered.  Little did I know that it would take two years!

We are finally there.  While I think that we did a pretty darned good job with our training classes over the last two years (ask anyone that attended) we are now convinced that we can teach you more about mastering the product in one week than you can learn on your own working with the product full time for years and years.  Our classes, both those run by TMurgent and those run by Kevin Kaminski over at The Big Hat Group, will be designated  as “Masters Level” in 2015.
