MetaFrame XP 5-day Advanced Training Classes from Brian Madden

I wrote my first Citrix book two years ago, and ever since then people have been asking me if I teach any training classes. I didn't want to become yet another Citrix Certified Instructor to teach the same old Citrix classes that are available everywhere.

I wrote my first Citrix book two years ago, and ever since then people have been asking me if I teach any training classes. I didn't want to become yet another Citrix Certified Instructor to teach the same old Citrix classes that are available everywhere. Therefore, I decided to develop my own courseware based on my books and my consulting experience. The result? I now offer a 5-day advanced class that teaches students how to plan, design, implement, operate, and troubleshoot MetaFrame XP environments. In class, we work with live systems and break into groups to create real designs.

Each class is customized for the particular students that attend. About a month before the class, we create an email distribution list for the students so that we can discuss specific class goals, skill levels, and products used. And, since these classes aren't sponsored by Citrix (or anyone, for that matter), we can also talk about third-party products, like printing and performance solutions, or even about how Citrix compares to New Moon and Terminal Server.

All students are invited to attend a welcome reception on Sunday evening before the class starts, and in each city we're having a Thursday night tech forum the week of the class. (We invite the local Citrix community and vendors to attend the Thursday forum.)

I've scheduled classes for the following locations:

  • Boston, MA, April 19-23, 2004
  • Houston, TX, April 26-30, 2004
  • Tampa, FL, May 3-7, 2004
  • Chicago, IL, June 21-25, 2004
  • San Diego, CA, June 28-July 2, 2004

Registration is now open for these locations. I'll be scheduling Washington DC and Houston classes soon, and I'm looking for more locations if you'd like to offer any suggestions.

You can also download a PDF version of the class overview if you need to justify it to your boss.
