SharePoint Training day 3

So we have had 3 days of our SharePoint Training…. Bill is a great instructor and has adapted the course to our group very well.  His humor is a bit dry, but very entertaining… not to mention the songs he has written about SharePoint.

Here are some photos thru today..

SharePoint Training

Where did the Northwoods Staff Go? All 4 are missing….

Fady, working hard or Hardly working???

A few were hanging around after the service tonight so they came over for a little Stand up comedy by Jerry Seinfeld… There was a marginal drop in bandwidth at my house when all the laptops came out of the bags…


Well its time for sleep for an early morning tomorrow… Training starts back up at 8:30 am…

This morning Fady won a gift card to Best Buy (aka the mothership) in our morning door prize… it helps to be ‘In Your Seat’ at start time… (sorry ed… i really do feel badly).

SharePoint Training for Church Consultants/Vendors!

An update to our SharePoint Training we will be offering on January 7-11.

Bill English has extended a very gracious offer for Consultants/Vendors who serve the church.  Previously we had limited the training to individuals directly employed by a church or ministry and no-one in the profit sector, serving a church or otherwise could attend.  Well that has changed.  We are now able to welcome individuals or employees of companies that provide services to the church.

The news even gets better, Bill has discounted the training by almost $1000.  The cost of the training including all the courseware is $2495.
