Does anyone know where I can attend Windows 7 training for about $500.00?  I'd like to go to hands-on training but I'll accept online training.  Our company is implementing Windows 7 next year and I want to learn how to build a good secure image.

The teacher will do the same or similar lessons. The best is you can read it again when you don't understand. If you realy need a course tell us your location.

Worried about phishing attacks?

90% of attacks start with a phish. It’s critical that IT admins and MSSPs have the right security in place to protect their end users from these phishing attacks. Check out our latest feature brief for tips and tricks to keep your employees off a hackers line!

if you are familiar with Windows XP, then:

1. get a copy of Windows 7 and install it.

2. learn what's new from the following Windows 7 site

http://www.microsoft.com/Windows/windows-7/
http://www.microsoft.com/Windows/windows-7/what-is-windows-7.aspx

3. play with Windows 7.

you won't need to pay $500 for training only. you may spend the dollars to get a copy of W7. :))

BTW, one purpose of upgrading to W7 is to reduce cost of training and have a better learning curve. W7 is easier than all its early versions. why do you need to spend so much money to learn an easier version? you probably need to spend $500 or more to learn Windows 2000 if you are now a Windows XP user. :))

cheers,

I shall make the assumption that you want to get a deeper understanding of the technical issues of implementing Windows 7 in a reasonably large scale organisation.  And that therefore you are going to need something a little more substantial than marketing speak and a kindergarten style learn-by-play approach.

Firstly, make use of all the free resources and material available to you.  TechNet is a good place to start and contains overviews of planning and deployment.  A Google search for "windows 7 white papers" produces good results also.

On the matter of training, it is a highly subjective area but I have always found CBT Nuggets to be good for me.  They are pitched at the right level and cover material that you need to know in order to pass the exams as well as 'real world' information.  MCITP: Microsoft Windows 7, Enterprise Desktop Support Technician is available on DVD within your budget.
