NEW YORK, NY – 11 December, 2007 – Future Media Concepts (FMC), the nation’s premier digital media training center and producer of educational conferences, announced the launch of a new event, the Mac IT Pro Bootcamp (MITPRO). Geared specifically to the needs of todayâ€™s IT professionals, MITPRO offers advanced training and certification for Mac OS X and OS X Server. The event runs from February 24-29 at the Deauville Beach Resort in Miami Beach, Florida.
This event is divided into two distinct parts; Certified Mac OS X Classes and the Mac IT Conference. Attendees have the option of registering for the entire week, or registering solely for the classes or conference. Keynote speakers and session presenters will be made up of Apple Certified Trainers, software engineers and system designers, as well as third-party developers and industry experts.
The first 4 days of MITPRO feature a variety of hands-on Apple Certified Mac OS X Classes, comprised of all Tiger and Leopard courses. Attendees are free to select whichever educational track they prefer. Upon completion, exams will be administered for Apple Certified Help Desk Specialist (ACHDS), System Administrator (ACSA), Technical Coordinator (ACTC) and Support Professional (ACSP) certifications.
The latter part of MITPRO is the Mac IT Conference, featuring two full days of sessions. Attendees freely move between some twenty informative and up-to-date sessions relevant to the present and future of the Mac IT industry. Topics covered include new features and difficulties in new finder development, UNIX and OS X management, differences in supporting PPC and Intel based disk utilities, setup and configuration of RAID setups with XSAN integration, et-al.
MITPRO is perhaps most notable for being an east coast Mac IT event which offers on-site Certified Mac OS X Certification Training and Exams. In addition to all the high-end classes and conference, MITPRO offers many exciting extras. Networking events, including group outings, afford opportunities to meet and mingle with peers, Apple developers and Conference speakers.
