I thought I'd provide a short introduction to the vPro Expert Training Program. I'll have more details to share as we get into the 4th Quarter of this year. As this program is still in development, some of the information below is subject to change, fair warning :D.
The vPro Expert Training Program is a series of public, technical training courses currently in development. These courses will be offered to the general public starting in the 4th quarter of 2007. Specific dates/times/logistics are not available at present.
Various courses are being developed, with different target audiences.
