What is a virtual hands-on-lab?
This isn’t your typical IT class. A hands-on lab online is an invite only event that combines LiveMeeting with a virtual lab.  Attendees and presenters login from anywhere. Attendees watch a brief LiveMeeting presentation, then spend most of the time getting hands-on experience working through all, or just self-selected modules of the entire lab – at their own pace, and receive real–time, personal, one-on-one attention from the presenter.  In addition, there’s a proctor available for technical support and to answer more attendee questions.

Part 1:  Thursday, November 18th
Part 2:  Wednesday, December 1st

Time: 9:00am – 11:00pm PST

Target Audience:  IT Pro w/System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2008 experience
