SharePoint Power User

I have had some experience in using SP 2007 and touched briefly upon using SP 2010 before my company was bought up by its sister company.

From then on I was delegated to utilizing SAP which is a nightmare for any casual user. I constantly tried to tell them about the benifets of SP over SAP or even how they can function together!

My company now is making a switch to implementing SP 2010 across the globe and I was asked to join the Share Point group to help roll it out.

This course was a great refesher for myself and a great prep class to lead into the administrator course.

The class size was relativly small and Robert was very good at answering questions and offering help to students. No complaints what so ever, he even tailored the learning to real world applications as we had a student who was developing a Share Point system with specific needs.

My only issue would be sometimes the speed of the class went faster then the resources we were given could keep up. My Virtual machine slowed down quite often and sometimes I would get so behind I would have to stop and just watch the instructors screen.

Outside of that no problems. I think its fantastic you get a copy of the recorded course for your personal use at a later date. This to me will be an extrodinary resource as there was a lot of material covered. I almost think it should be split into a 3 day class.

Anyway, thanks SPI. I look forward to the Administrator class in August.

Disorganized failure

Went through a mess trying to pay them for services. I was given a satisfaction survey a month before the class was supposed to occur. Then they cancelled the OnSite class. The entire experience was nothing more or less than a headache.

Great Instructor and practical labs

I'm a SharePoint Developer, started building apps from 2007, took the Administrator and Developer courses for 2010 online from SharePoint Innovations.

It was like an on-site instructor-led class – but at the convenience of my desk.

The session was very interactive, not like other “shut up and listen” online training that I have tried.

Bill was VERY responsive to students…It’s often surprising to have an instructor who can immediately answer questions and give relevant, practical information. I applied what I learned five minutes after the end of the class.

I'm very pleased with your presentations, labs and materials. They are by far the very best I have ever attended. Hands down.

Disappointing

I administer WSS3.0 for several years now and took SharePoint Innovations "Administrator Camp" in-person training, hoping that it will prepare me for proper installation, configuration and overall implementation.

It was a big, big disappointment. First, they don't tell you that you need to bring your own laptop, in my case – 2 days before a weekend and class start, and I had to scramble with a request to my IT department.

There were no printed course materials provided, only some general SPS features slides on TV screen. Had to watch instructor on TV do the lab and follow his steps.

Having read some materials about SPS 2010 before, I felt that this course was an introduction to SPS 2010, somewhere on power user level and not an admin level.
SPS 2010 installation and configuration was done via SPS wizard. I was expecting best practices, Powershell and so on. We didn’t even touch Powershell commands.

Many steps didn’t work/error and instructor didn’t know what was going on. Also instructor wasn’t able to answer many of my questions.
The only good part was there were three students in the class so we could ask questions easily.

Take away materials were couple of 3rd party e-books in PDF format and certificate of completion is just a PDF file, sent a week later.

At the cost of $1,685 this class it totally worthless.
You can learn more by reading Sharepoint blogs and creating/printing your own certificate.
