Windows Intune - Classroom Training Events In April

At short notice the Windows Intune product team has supplied us with a trainer to deliver two classroom training events, one in Sydney, and one in Melbourne. You can register for these events here, but register now because these classes don't have a large capacity.

If you are unable to attend these, please make sure you set aside time in your diaries for our upcoming series of technical webcasts on Windows Intune, full details here.
