RM Tech Seminars 2011 - should I stay or should I go?
I need some advice. I've booked in to go to this event below in November at the Exeter venue. £85 is good value CPD I think! I'm going as an e-safety assessor hat part of which includes looking at the technical side in a bit of detail but i want to understand it more. However, i want to spend my time wisely at the event.
"CPD for Network Managers and Technicians – Essential IT Training Seminars
The Technical Seminars are designed for staff with technical or a managerial responsibility for the schools' IT systems and focus on the technical aspects of efficiently managing a complete network.
Delivered at nine locations during November delegates will increase their technical skills and knowledge, by attending sessions directly related to their day-to-day roles.
Please encourage your technical colleagues to book their places on these essential IT training seminars."
So, there are three seminars out of 9 I can go to, the first I'm going to is fairly straight forward and connected to my role:
- Network Security: Managing the Unmanaged - about using and managing personal devices using the network
- The second I thought I'd go to is: Understanding the Virtual Network - although I don't think it's about Second Life it sounds worthwhile!
I'm undecided on the last one though, I under stand one title "The Technician's Toolkit" David Wrightbut but not the other two...I wondered, any chance one of you who knows about this stuff can take a look at the two seminars and see which might have most relevance to someone who is seeking to influence e-safety?
The two are:
- 64-bit:What's in it for me? Nicola Faulkner
- Ultimate Scripting: PowerShell Introduction Michael Oakes
It maybe its right out of my comfort zone so perhaps I should just take the time to browse round the stands! Anyway, any advice appreciated. : ) Cheers!
