Get VMware vSphere and View trained here... on Udemy!

What do you do if you need to learn VMware but can't afford the $4,000 - $6,000 charged for authorized training? Now you can enroll in my equivalent VMware training here on Udemy!

I have created a six courses that together offer over 32 hours of VMware vSphere 6 lectures (about 8 days of instructor lead training at 4hrs lecture per day). With Udemy, I can provide more insight and detail, without the time constraints that a normal instructor led training class would impose. My goal is to give you a similar or better training experience - at about 10% of the cost of classroom training.

I am an IT consultant / trainer with over 25 years of experience. I worked for 10 years as a UNIX programmer and administrator before moving to Linux in 1995. I've been working with VMware products since 2001 and now focus exclusively on VMware. I earned my first VMware Certified Professional (VCP) designation on ESX 2.0 in 2004 (VCP #: 993). I have also earned VCP in ESX 3, and in vSphere 4 and 5.

I have been providing VMware consulting and training for more than 10 years. I have lead literally hundreds of classes and taught thousands of people how to use VMware. I teach both introductory and advanced VMware classes.

I even worked for VMware as a VMware Certified Instructor (VCI) for almost five years. After leaving VMware, I decided to launch my own training business focused on VMware virtualization. Prior to working for VMware, I worked as a contract consultant and trainer for RedHat, Global Knowledge and Learning Tree.

I hold a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science and Math from the University of Toronto. I also hold numerous industry certifications including VMware Certified Professional on VMware Infrastructure 2 & 3 and vSphere 4 & 5 (ret.), VMware Certified Instructor (ret.), RedHat Certified Engineer (RHCE), RedHat Certified Instructor (RHCI) and RedHat Certified Examiner (RHCX) as well as certifications from LPI, HP, SCO and others.

I hope to see you in one of my Udemy VMware classes... If you have questions, please contact me directly.
