Instructor-led in the classroom or live via Skype
We offer a regular schedule of instructor-led courses at well-equipped training venues in the UK, US, Germany and the Netherlands.
Courses usually take place in Pacific time, Eastern time, or UK or European time.
Join the class from wherever you are on the planet
At first, I was hesitant about doing the course remotely, but I would have no concerns now. I was in Pacific time zone, other students were in EST zone, the instructor was in the UK, and everything worked great!
Online self-paced MIM courses
Take our MIM Foundation and MIM Advanced courses self-paced online. Our students give them rave reviews!
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!
Learn anytime, anywhere…with the support of an experienced tutor
Our online training courses allow you to learn in you own time, at your own pace and with the support of an experienced tutor.
If you have questions or need advice, you can email your tutor for help. We pride ourselves on our speed of response and, depending on the issue, we will either reply by email or arrange a Skype session.
You’ll get 28 days to complete each online course – and this is plenty if you devote just a couple of hours a day to study, or set aside time at the weekends.
Course modules are split into lessons as MP4 presentations, and often include a lab demo for you to see before you try it yourself. Choose which lesson or demo you want to view – pause, rewind and fast forward as often as you like!

We can send our instructor to your premises – or wherever you choose.
There are many benefits to training privately:
- significant savings on travel and overnight expenses for your staff
- arrange the course on a date convenient to you and your team
- flexible course content – we can’t completely re-write courses but we can tailor the content to focus on the elements most important to you
- training with your colleagues means you can have discussions specific and relevant to you
- huge cost savings – train more than five people and you immediately save on the costs of classroom training
- keep your valuable IT professionals on-site – we’d rather they stay focused on the training, but we know emergencies happen
If you’re considering MIM, don’t proceed without Oxford Computer Group’s world-class training. This is what makes or breaks IAM Departments. Without it, our complex identity management project could not have succeeded. A US mid-west university’s IT team
Our private courses run in the same way as our public courses. Students get comprehensive printed course notes to guide them. Many of our alumni call this ‘their bible’ and refer back to it repeatedly.
The instructor takes the students through the modules and labs, and is on hand to offer one-to-one help.
When students have completed the course, they get a certificate of attendance as well as a time-limited login to access the OCG Training Portal, giving them access to course manuals, tutorials, course modules and self-assessment quizzes, so they can immediately begin to build on and put into practice what they learned on the course.
To host a private training course, our technicians set up the training VMs in the cloud. This means that delegates simply arrive with their own laptops and they can access the VMs through your broadband connection. This reduces the set-up to a minimum.
All instructor expenses, such as travel and hotels are charged at cost.
Keep on learning
If you attend a class in person or via Skype, you get free access to all online demos, quizzes and lectures for one month from the first day of your course. This will help you to consolidate what you learn, and if you found a particular section tricky, you can go over it again.
Need even more? You can extend your VM time to continue accessing the environment, enabling you to re-do labs and explore the product more deeply.
Everyone’s unique. We learn in different ways, and have different needs and requirements. That’s why OCG Learning offers a choice of training options. You can attend intensive classroom training (in person or remotely over the internet) or learn at your own pace online. You choose.
