Last year, I took the 3.6.1 EPO Class and found it to be helpfull. I have since moved on to 4.0 and have been told "Unofficially" to wait until training for 4.1 is out. I guess the current 4.0 class is 3.6.1 with more emphasis on reporting. The class for 4.1 will be a rewrite.
Microtek in Downtown Chicago has a really nice facility and is withing walking distance to Trains and or Buses.
4.0 took some getting used to, but now I struggle when I have to look at a old 3.x epo box.
HIPS has just been dropped in lap and I am looking at that class.....Unfortunately it isn't offered in Illinois.
I took the ePO 4.0 class back in January 2008. You do a lot of basic things that you may already know. Install, configure, setup ePO. Agent wake up calls, installing agent, reporting, and so on so forth.
Yes 4.0 is different from 3.6, but if you know the fundamentals it may not be worth it for you. You may be better off buying some books on ePO 4.0 or 4.1 if possible and saving yourself or the company some money. I definitly do not think it is worth the 5k. I'd rather do some other technical training, perhaps SANS and get some better security training that can be used anywhere instead of ePO.
I took the 3.6 to 4.0 upgrade class. I thought it was great LOTS of hands on. You when thorught the console and did on upgrade. I give it an A. I learned a lot. To be fair when I took the class I have very little experience with ePO. I am more comfortable now.
Do you have any suggestions on this front? I had not thought about this actually, and I just did a brief search on amazon, but I did not find anything related to EPO.
I'm sorry but I guess the books actually may come directly through mcafee training since they look like they were made in office. They are not really text books. However, you may have success by looking up white papers on ePO.
