MAC OS X Bootcamp


Our MAC OS X Bootcamp  is a combined delivery of the El Capitan 100 and the El Capitan 201 courses. The OS X Support Essentials 10.11 Exam is included with the class.  This five-day hands-on course provides an in-depth exploration of functionality and troubleshooting on OS X and the best methods for effectively supporting users of OS X systems.

This course also gives technical coordinators and entry-level system administrators the skills, tools, and knowledge to implement and maintain a network that uses OS X Server. Students learn how to install and configure OS X Server to provide network-based services, such as file sharing, authentication, and printing. Tools for efficiently managing and deploying OS X and software updates are also covered.

This course is designed for help desk specialists, technical coordinators, service technicians, and entry-level system administrators who implement and maintain networks using Mac OS X Server or support Mac users, technical support personnel in businesses that use Macs for general productivity or creative design, and technical coordinators or power users who manage networks of computers running Mac OS X — such as teachers and technology specialists who manage classroom networks or computer labs.
