macOS Bootcamp: High Sierra 101 + 201

macOS Server Essentials is a three-day course designed to give technical coordinators and entry-level system administrators the skills, tools, and knowledge to implement and maintain a network that uses macOS Server. Students learn how to install and configure macOS Server to provide network-based services, such as file sharing, authentication, and printing. Tools for efficiently managing and deploying macOSX and software updates are also covered. The course is a combination of lectures and hands-on case study exercises that provide practical real-world experience. For Students Enrolled in a Virtual Class: Each student will need to setup two (2) computers in order to take the class virtually. The first can be a PC, tablet or Mac. The second computer must be a Mac and you will need the software (and version) being taught in the course already installed on your computer. This setup will allow virtual students to view the presentation on one computer and do support exercises on the other one.
