I enjoyed working at my own pace and being able to go over certain sections again that I didn’t understand initially. I liked the convenience of not having to travel for this training and the flexibility of being able to study either in the office or at home. My only difficulty was completing the training alongside my busy day job and trying to make time for it.

Excellent. Very happy with the training. Course work was well managed and easy to follow. The course took place in a conference room at a golf club instead of an office. This was a good idea and made a pleasant atmosphere.

This was the first time I’d followed a self-paced online training course and I must say I was very pleased with the quality of the material. The course is well-structured and it was easy to plan the training in different sessions and days to fit my agenda.

I started by working my way through the written manual and lab course material. After a couple of modules I decided to check out the videos, and I am very happy I did. The rest of the course I watched all the videoed lessons. I also starting watching the lab videos which gave a much richer explanation of the labs compared to the written lab instructions. The voice of the tutor was reassuring, and I liked how he explained things. I liked how the course built up with the various modules, to understand the key elements of the product.

This course has given me a great foundation to get started with MIM and I am now well prepared to learn a lot more about the product in the future.

Tim Peter E, Senior Consultant, Norway Attended MIM Foundation online self-paced, 2017

Just as with both the MIM Foundation and MIM Advanced courses, this was great – by far one of the best courses I have ever attended! I’ve learned so much about the possibilities in MIM, and I am looking forward to putting my new knowledge into practice in our MIM projects. The course materials, the instructor’s presentations and the labs are of great quality, I really enjoyed it.

The instructor can be summed up in one word: brilliant! Paul is such a nice guy with so much knowledge and experience. His teaching and presentation skills are great! He’s so helpful and he really wants us to learn. He is really humorous as well!

This was, by FAR, the best training I’ve received in years! I loved how ‘lab heavy’ the course was. I learned so much from working through the labs. The instructor’s training style was perfect. He didn’t just read from decks, he whiteboarded. he took the time to answer all questions in detail, demonstrating a staggering understanding of the subject matter. He stayed late each and every night working with people that wanted to linger and finish up labs. He was, in short, remarkable. I cannot say enough kind things.

Fantastic course – from how the initial concepts are described, to pulling them all together in the modules and backed up by good labs. Tutor was knowledgeable, entertaining and always good.

Paul L, Technical Specialist IAM Attended Azure AD course in the classroom, 2017

Just as with the MIM Foundation course,  this MIM Advanced course was great – I had a really fun time taking this course! Even though the course content was more demanding, it still worked great to study online at my own pace. The course materials were really good. Good structure and great quality content! I am really looking forward to the MIM Expert course!

Hanne N, System Engineer, Norway Attended MIM Advanced online self-paced, 2017

The classroom course was good, just a small group of colleagues and a professional teacher. Good theory with good labs.  It was very nice to have Paul as a teacher. He’s a real professional but also very good at making me laugh, it’s a pleasure listening to him talking. Sometimes a little too much text because this is not my native language!

The training materials were professional and clear. When you are able to take an online course and not think about the mechanics of the delivery until after the course, when you’re asked for an evaluation – that’s a good indicator of quality.

5

Wow – lots of detail in the advanced course. Thanks, Hugh, for patiently responding to my questions. I appreciated the quick turnaround and thoughtful responses! Overall, these courses were good and I am glad I was able to take them.

Kris K, IT Security Specialist, North Carolina, USA Attended MIM Advanced online self-paced, 2017

It was really easy to use the labs, exercises and pdfs remotely. The connection worked well, very doable with a remote connection. I don’t feel like I missed anything by not being able to attend in person. The instructor was a really clear speaker, very strong on MIM, good at teaching and supporting.

David L, Senior Support Escalation Engineer, Washington, USA Attended MIM Foundation live class in real time over the internet, 2017

Brilliant course format. It worked out great. I am doing the course at the same time as a co-worker, and this allows us to help each other when there is something we do not understand and discuss how things relates to our environment. Your staff in general are very attentive. I am impressed by your quick response times on all types of requests. I requested lab access late at night on a Sunday, to have it ready the next morning, but to my astonishment, it was ready an hour later. Way to go!

Jan Kåre L, Senior Systems Engineer, Norway Attended MIM Advanced course online self-paced, 2017

With a significant PAM project coming up it was critical that I skilled up in this space and OCG has provided me with all the knowledge I need to manage that and also some great ideas for how I might tailor PAM for my particular environment.

5

Very hands-on, easy to follow. Doing the course at my own pace was a double-edged sword, since I procrastinated a lot, but it allowed me to work over a lot of days, which was nice. The videos were separated into manageable portions (not too long).

5

It was a very well planned course, and I never felt rushed or overwhelmed by the pace. I attended the UK session from my home office in Columbus, Ohio, USA. Even if I have to get up at 3am for the course again, I know it will be well worth the knowledge I’ll gain.  I was concerned about the time zone difference but the course flow and presentation made it enjoyable, especially the lab work. There were a couple of network issues but Paul (the tutor) stayed late to ensure I did not miss any information. I cannot thank Paul and the rest of the OCG Learning team enough.

5

I was a bit skeptical about the online format, as was my superiors, but in retrospect it worked out great. It was good to pause the video to take notes, ponder and look at my production. The training videos and courseware are exquisite pieces of work, in themselves worth the price of admission. The environment vastly enriches the experience, without resulting in me zoning out and missing an important section of the course. It also leaves ample room for reflection, and I guess I cannot blame the course for me playing with labs till very late at night! I am doing the advanced course next, and I will definitely schedule more time for that run.

Jan Kåre L, Senior Systems Engineer, Norway Attended MIM Foundation course online self-paced, 2017

Fantastic! The environment with a small number of trainees was the best experience for the hands-on approach to labs, and an opportunity to ask many questions about real-world implementations and challenges. The instructor was very friendly, informative and approachable to discuss particular issues in your particular live environment. Very informative and very approachable in your learning and the potential implementation challenges you may have.

Mario A, Programme Manager, London, UK Attended Azure AD course in the classroom, 2016

The course experience was superb. I had already taken the Foundation course and this [Advanced] course provided … enough enhancement on how MIM works that I am very confident that I can more effectively advance our enterprise-wide identity and access management system.

I appreciate being able to participate remotely. [live instructor-led but online in real time] This is the second course I have participated in remotely and highly recommend it. It was just like being in the classroom!

Paul is a natural teacher. He is articulate and knowledgeable. I especially liked how he seemed to intuitively anticipate what questions may arise. Time and time again he would clear up both verbalized and non-verbalized questions I had. I also found him very approachable, attentive to detail, responsive to questions and humorous as well. I would rate him as one of the best instructors I have ever learned from.

5

Thank you for an excellent course! Paul, the trainer, is very experienced. What I learned will be of great value to me for IAM planning, architecture and operations in the financial services organisation I work for.

Thank you very much for that outstanding course! Deep technical subjects and real world examples and recommendations. Instructor has strong teaching and presentation skills, he’s very friendly and helpful.

5

The training course covered a lot of material that was very helpful to better understand the product and be able to present it to Senior Management and describe the functionality. The labs made it very easy to follow and understand exactly what they were doing and how FIM works. The instructor was very knowledgeable and made the whole class fun and interesting with real world examples from his consulting work and humor. Overall the best training class I have ever had!

John C, Senior Identity Engineer, Virginia, USA Attended MIM Expert live class in real time over the internet, 2015

Very good structure, starting with overview and expanding topics. Language (balance of formal and informal) was better than any other course I have been on and very understandable. From previous experience of OCG, I had high expectations, which were fully met.

4_5

I learned relevant new skills and the ‘hands on’ makes the recall better when I implement this in the future – the solving of unexpected problems has to be hands on to work. This course is highest industry level for learning with valuable hands on lab.

4_5

I am a medium experienced FIM person. This course gave me a lot of technical depth, it gave me a lot of answers to why particular things are done in a particular way. It also helped me better understand the classic rules that I had inherited from a Microsoft Consultant and knew how to modify, but this gave me a whole new perspective. All the people on the OCG Learning team were extremely helpful and knowledgeable. Thank you!

Sylvester C, Solution Architect, Los Angeles, USA Attended MIM Advanced online self-paced, 2016

OCG’s courses are excellent at explaining how to implement and maintain the product. That their knowledge is clearly based on real world experience will prove to be very useful to me in my work.

Sean G, Infrastructure System Admin, Newcastle-upon-Tyne, UK Attended FIM Expert in person in the classroom, 2015

We were very impressed with the depth of experience and knowledge the instructor had. He actually had more experience than the consultants we engaged to actually run our project. Since our instructor had a decade long background as an IAM consultant, he was able to answer our deep technical questions and talk at length about the product architecture as it related to our environment. Let’s just say: we got more than our money’s worth!

We decided to opt for the private on-site course because not only was it cheaper, it allowed us to take the time and ask environment specific questions about MIM and our unique installation. This was invaluable to our learning experience.

The course materials were well written, logical and helpful. We are still referring to them. This training helped prepare us for our long and complex MIM project, we could NOT have succeeded without it! If any company is considering MIM, you do not want to proceed without world class training… this is what makes or breaks IAM departments.
