If Apple devices such as iPhone, iPad and Mac are used in a company, then IT must also be familiar with them. Apple is now offering new training courses and certificates so that potential employees can show that they are appropriately qualified. These can also be used by the existing IT support and technology management in the company to further train the necessary knowledge for the issue, maintenance and networking of the technology. "The training courses have been completely redesigned and converted into an online format for self-study. Participants can prove their competence with two new exams and receive a certificate from Apple", is it [called in the press release.
In addition to the existing offers, two new training courses are now available training.apple.com accessible. The sections that build on one another ensure that graduates acquire more and more skills and knowledge over time in order to implement IT support on Apple devices. The press release linked above also refers to the completion of the courses: “New certification exams are available upon completion of each course to demonstrate competency at each level with corresponding Apple digital certificates."
However, the courses and exams are not (yet) free. A quote from Susan Prescott, Vice President of Enterprise and Education Marketing at Apple, states, among other things, “[…] we are working to ensure that the expenses incurred are not an obstacle to obtaining an Apple certification.' but this work does not appear to be complete. Each training course, including the final exam, costs a total of 149 US dollars (approx. 142,27 euros). Once the exam has been successfully passed, the certificates issued can be attached to CVs, presented in job exchanges and work networks such as LinkedIn or Xing or presented in other ways. Interested parties without the necessary funds may be able to get vouchers from the Mac Admins Foundation: macadmins.org.
Further information on the topic can be found in the press release and on the additionally linked pages. Have fun with your studying!
