Every training department in the world has the same foundational need–that is, to understand their audience’s needs. So, occasionally we use a survey to get answers to specific questions we have about how we are perceived by the customers we’ve trained. You’re input is very valuable to us, so we are offering a chance to…

I’ve always been interested in the PlateSpin products and a little while ago I sat down with Frank Moore to discuss his PlateSpin Migrate session at ATT Live. For anyone who does not know, PlateSpin Migrate decouples workloads from their underlying server infrastructure and automatically copies and moves them over the network – Basically you…

I am excited to be part of the team that is putting together ATT Live 2012 – ATT standing for Advanced Technical Training.  ATT Live 2010 was a great training event at a great location and Novell and SUSE users and partners told us, to quote from one of Todd Rossin’s post event blog post, what they learnt…

There are three online classes available over the next 5 weeks for Identity Manager 4 customers. No matter what level of experience you have with IDM 4 we have a course that’s right for you. These classes have the same hands-on labs that you would expect in a live classroom.

The product team wanted content that went deeper, technically, than the content we had previously released on the Protect product. In order to help us accomplish that objective, they gave us a lot of their time and wrote a lot of the content themselves.

We’ve got some new PlateSpin Protect training coming just around the corner. I mentioned not too long ago that this course was in development. Well now it’s in the final stages of operations . . . I’m talking about “Workload Management Administration with PlateSpin Protect,” Course 8017. By the end of this month, you’ll be able to buy this course for self-study or sign up to take the class at a Novell Training Partner.

Why am I writing about the coming of this course 2 weeks in advance? Why am I not waiting until it’s shipping before I start making noise about it? Because I’ve got something to show you.

Until now, my posts have been exclusively about training deliverables that come from my team of course developers. But we’re not the only game in town when it comes to delivering training on Novell products. Far from it. In addition to my team, which develops the courses that are delivered by training partners, we have two other teams of folks who not only develop but also expertly deliver training via Novell Online.

We have a couple Novell Online courses that I’d like to highlight here:

I feel like I’ve gone on and on about our new IDM 4 courses in previous blog posts. Possibly to the point of boring readers of this blog to tears. Can I help that I am proud of my team’s work!?

So at the risk of possibly boring someone even beyond tears, I feel obliged to mention that we’ve bundled these two new courses together. The two courses are available now as a self-study kit . . .

Earlier this month Novell Training Services launched a new certification, for administrators of Novell Identity Manager 4. It’s called the Certified Novell Identity Manager Administrator, or CNIMA.

The ideal certification is not about book learning–it’s about giving a person a chance to prove they can do a job. The CNIMA was created with that ideal in mind.
