After much planning & taking into account the feedback from the SMB Servers pre-day at TechEd, I'm happy to announce the first round of SBS / EBS hands-on labs has been released:
Microsoft Australia has subsidised these sessions, dates & cities below. Cost is $399 for 2 full days of training & with limited spots available before Christmas I urge you to sign-up today.
They will be delivered by experienced Excom instructors & Wayne Small will be conducting a week long train-the-trainer event in late October to ensure they're up to speed on the latest curriculum from Corp. He's been in Seattle for the past 3 weeks boning up on the same content that our product support teams goes though & so hopefully the content delivered at these sessions will be at the level you need.
Wayne & I will be also be coming to each capital city in November (mostly but not always co-inciding with the SBS user group meeting) & so watch this space for details. We'll also soon provide an update on all the self-paced, online training that's coming down the pipe.
Cheers & please let me know if you have any troubles signing up.
PS - these are just the first batch of HOLs - many more in 2009!
