Get trained by the people who wrote the book on Apple deployments. Managing Apple Devices is an entirely new hands-on course created by Apple Pro Training Series authors Arek Dreyer and Kevin M. White.  This course will enable you to create an effective plan for deploying and maintaining groups of Apple devices using iOS 8 and OS X Yosemite in your organization.

You will be introduced to Apple management technologies including Mobile Device Management, the Volume Purchase Program, and the Device Enrollment Program. Not only will you learn how to use Profile Manager, Apple’s implementation of Mobile Device Management, but you will also learn about the ideas behind device management and how to make configuration easier for both administrators and users while maintaining a highly secure environment
