Hello Jamf Nation Friends,
A quick update for you those of you who have been unable to attend classes due to Covid-19. I’m happy to announce that we’ve updated the Jamf 200 and Jamf 300 Courses for remote delivery. Classes are available on Jamf Nation now and you can enroll immediately. We’re still working on scaling out our capacity and will be adding more classes as soon as we can and as these fill. Additionally we’re still working on prepping the 400 for remote delivery, we do plan to offer this but do not have a timeline to share at this time.
While the curriculum and exam are the same as when we offer these classes in person, there are some key differences that are worth calling out.
• A reliable internet connection - capable of receiving 1.0 Mbps and sending 1.5 Mbps.
• A test (non-production) computer with macOS 10.15.4 or later with a functioning camera.
• A test (non-production) iPad with iPadOS 13.0 or higher.
• Five days (9 AM - 5 PM each day) of virtual classroom interaction.
• Server infrastructure
• Digital course materials.
• Proctored certification exam during the afternoon on the fifth day.
• Jamf Certified Tech badge on your Jamf Nation profile (upon successfully completing the exam with a passing score).
Training Pass customers can enroll as well via Jamf Nation and we will have an update for you on how we are looking to accommodate the length of Training Pass time shortly. We are working to finalize some of the more mundane administrative and backend tasks on our end. Keep an eye on your inbox for details but please don’t hesitate to register for classes that are available now in the mean time.
Disclaimer: I have a decent amount of Jamf Pro experience at this point (approx 2 years or so), and I was already pretty familiar with the command line prior to this.
I found that the course very comfortable in terms of difficulty, this is in no small part down to the trainer but also down to 10 years or so of supporting macOS. I found that in 300 I was definitely learning new concepts (particularly around some new-to-me scripting bits and interacting with the API), it opened up my eyes to a few possibilities that I hadn't yet considered but the course definitely built on knowledge I already have.
I was wondering if there was any update on the progress of content update for remote courses with regard to iOS 14 and Big Sur?
The latest information I can find on the training course pages (200 & 300) states :
A test (non-production) computer with any version of macOS 10.15 Catalina and a functioning camera. A test (non-production) iPad with any version of iPad OS 13. Note: Course materials currently do not support macOS 11 Big Sur or iPad OS 14. However, changes are underway and these requirements will be updated in early 2021.
I have a Big Sur device and iPad on iOS 14, as Apple are not signing 13.7 anymore I am unable to fulfil the requirements for the course however my employer has purchased a training pass which I am keen to make use of.
Any updated information would be gratefully received.
