SharePoint School will be running our highly successful and popular MOSS/MLG administration and installation course aimed at the education market.

This will be our 4th course of the year as our previous 3 courses have been sold out, hence the need for a further date.

This is a two day, hands on course which will explain the technologies behind MOSS and how this comes together to produce the Microsoft Learning Gateway (including deployment of all web-parts).

You will be working on installing and building your own MOSS system live, going through the key components of MOSS2007 (SLK, CMS, RSS, DOC Libraries, subscriptions, targeting, MySites, user portals) as well as the third party applications which can be integrated (SIMS/CMIS/AD Automation, Provisioning Tools, Podcasting, WMS etc...).

SharePoint School are running this course in London on the 2/3rd October. We have a couple of places left at our Warrington Course on the 22/23 August if you are quick.

The course price is £1000 for the two days and you will be given a SharePoint Course accreditation upon completion.
