Mac and iOS Bootcamp 1-Day Course



Stay safe with virtual training during COVID-19

The well-being of our delegates is our priority during the COVID-19 pandemic. For this reason our trainers are now teaching this course via a virtual platform. There is no change to the course content, and we will resume classroom training when the public health situation improves.

Mac and iOS Bootcamp is a one-day course written by our own Apple master trainer. Delegates will get an overview of key concepts in managing Apple devices, with a focus on MDM, DEP, and VPP.
