Are the times allready determined for these trainings? It's quite relevant to us given the time difference.

Yes, the sessions are taught live at 1pm EST. Let me know if you have any other questions.

This is great, I have been on the business side and know some things but alas there is more that I don't know.

Is there a study text accompanying this course that takes students a bit deeper into the material that's presented in class? Perhaps putting the information in varied usage contexts or expanding slightly into the nerdy side of the technology and how ubiquitous it's become?

Marjorie - thanks for your first comment!

Yes, the course will have reading assignments for each class that should be done before the live presentation. The reports assigned for class are derived from our testing and research.

The reading is followed by a live presentation on the content in the readings with two IPVM employees presenting, providing live demonstrations, monitoring chat for questions and comments and adding color to the information from the reading assignments.

I haven't taken this one yet, but I can assure you that there's nothing more thorough than an IPVM course.

Whoops. (can you delete this)
