Certification Camps has developed a comprehensive training / delivery format which focuses on learning beyond the core content accessible to any Microsoft training provider. Our program incorporates interactive demonstrations with explanations which go beyond the content of the book. Additional content, videos, labs & demonstrations are provided to expand on advanced topics - providing additional insight and perspective. Certification Camps boot camp is not the typical "canned" PowerPoint & book presentation found at any local training center.
As a Microsoft Certified Partner with Gold Learning Competency - we adhere to the strict guidelines, standards and requirements to use Microsoft's exclusive curriculum. Our standards go beyond the "minimum requirements" set forth by Microsoft.
We leverage our partnership benefits of courseware customization to build end to end technology solutions. Students gain practical skills which can be implemented immediately.
Our training program starts before you ever set foot in the classroom by providing you with pre-study materials / pre-class remote lab access / pre-class practice test. While attending camp - you will work with an industry leading "real world experienced" Microsoft Certified Trainer. After your camp is over - learning does not stop. You receive 6 months remote access to your classroom lab environment.
CAMPUS - Certification Camps invested $150,000 into a complete training center construction build out. Larger classrooms, no sound transference between training rooms, new desk / executive leather chairs & great common areas.
CLASSROOM SERVERS - Each of our students work on a dedicated Dell 8500 / 8700 with an Intel i7 (4th generation), minimum of 16GB memory (Most with 32 GB) and most with 512GB SSD drives.
CAMPUS INTERNET - The campus is connected with a 300Mbs Verizon Fios Business Connection which provides complete internet (including VPN) access for students.
COMMON AREA - Unlike any training facility ever - breakroom with Mame Aracde, high end "kitchen" breakroom with snacks, drinks (Starbucks Coffee, 100% juices, sodas, etc) and breathtaking terrace.
LODGING - We use the Marriott Fairfield Inn & Suites Lakewood Ranch. This "upgraded" hotel offers extremely comfortable beds, great breakfast and very fast (Verizon) internet access.
NEAR BY AMENITIES - Many shops, restuarants and grocery options are available within walking distance. Additionally - the hotel provided scheduled shuttle services. Restuarants like Bone Fish Grill, Ruby Tuesday's, Five Guys, Chipotle, Quiznos, Chili's and over 20 additional choices in the immediate area. All of these options are offered in a pedestrian walking village.
CERTIFICATION CAMPS DIFFERENCE
Certification Camps provides a very in-depth hands on learning environment, not the typical book reading and Power Point presentation found at any local training center. Our instructors teach using demonstrations and explain concepts beyond the scope of the courseware. Instructors are contracted from all across the US. The instructors are real world consultants who actually implement these technologies and not spend 100% of their time teaching. We believe since you have to work in the "real world" - it only makes sense to have an instructor with the experience in the real world.
Facilities - Many of our competitors over-crowd classrooms by placing 2 to 3 students per desk and 20+ students per instructor. Often they try to extend the life of very old equipment with lag and slow performance on the software used today. Our average class size is 8 students. Our facilities have the best equipment with the most comfortable, focused environment for learning.
Instructors - Our CEO, Chester Flake holds one of the rarest Microsoft Certifications - the Microsoft Certified Learning Consultant (MCLC) Certification. This certification reflects our company commitment to make sure our instructors are also actively engaged in real world consulting projects. Our instructors teach using hands on demonstrations - not the typical Power Point and book reading format used at any local training center. We know students can read a book on their own and do not need someone reading Power Point slides. Students expect a professional who can answer and demonstrate the technology questions.
Test Pass Guarantees - We offer a free retake voucher for each of the exams required for certification. Any training center offering a "pass guarantee" would have to use unethical practices or unlimited test vouchers (which is not likely or practical).
Distractions - Students often look for a "local" training center so they can be close to home and work. Boot camp requires a tremendous time commitment during the program. Long class hours combined with self study - so you can achieve the same goal of certification in a fraction of the time. We strongly recommend students are in an environment where they can focus and study without distraction.
Boot Camps - Most training providers "added" boot camps to the services they offer. We have always focused and exclusively offered just boot camps. Most training centers think a boot camp is just a regular class where you send the student home with a voucher on the last day. We test you every few days while you are attending the camp. Not every trainer can teach a boot camp and not all courseware is designed for boot camp format. Our trainers know the boot camp format and our courseware is designed for accelerated learning.
Florida - Certification Camps has one of the most scenic locations boasting some of the best weather in US. We believe students should have a comfortable and inviting atmosphere while attending these otherwise intense programs. We certainly place our location up against that any competitor.
