Introducing Office for Mac Accreditation by Microsoft.

Microsoft has created a new pilot program specifically designed to train and accredit Apple techs and consultants on Microsoft Office for Mac and Office 365 suites. The "Microsoft Office for Mac Accredited Support Professional" accreditation is a half day long pilot program, and will take place the day prior to each MacTech BootCamp II, and MacTech Conference in 2013. This new Microsoft accreditation program is training and evaluation focused on the issues every consultant and tech should know when advising on or supporting Microsoft Office for Mac, and Microsoft Office 365, with a focus on Apple users.

All registered attendees to MacTech's 2013 Events, are welcome to attend the course, and become accredited, at no charge. Space is limited. If you haven't already registered for MacTech Conference 2013, you can do so now.

Learn. Network. Get Accredited.

The pilot accreditation program will cover topics such as installation; Office Web Apps; best practices in configuration, preferences, settings and use; licensing options; cross platform features; sharing documents with SkyDrive, SharePoint, and more; troubleshooting and common questions; available support resources; and more. The accreditation is specifically designed for Apple consultants and techs supporting others using Microsoft Office for Mac, and Office 365. At the end of the course, attendees will be evaluated on the content presented, and those who demonstrate sufficient knowledge will become a "Microsoft Office for Mac Accredited Support Professional."

Strut your stuff.

Once obtained, attendees will receive an accreditation certificate from Microsoft, and be able to display the new accreditation graphic on their web sites and other promotional materials, as well as in their credentials. This is a great way that techs and consultants can promote additional demand for your services.

Dates and Cities.

There are seven MacTech BootCamp's in 2013 in cities around the United States, plus MacTech Conference. The Microsoft accreditation course and evaluation is a half day program that takes place the day BEFORE each MacTech BootCamp II as follows:

    Microsoft accreditation course on Mar 5

  • Los Angeles : MacTech Conference on Nov 6-8, 2013;
    Microsoft accreditation course on Nov 5


What's new this year?
New Venue. Expanded Schedule. Pre-Conference Workshops.
More Sessions. More Labs. More Certifications. New Vendor Forums.

This year's event has an expanded schedule with more time for even more sessions, new and expanded labs, more peer networking opportunities, additional accreditations, and optional pre-conference workshops. Our new Pre-Conference Workshops and the acclaimed Microsoft Office for Mac Accreditation Courses take place on Tue, November 5, 2013.

And the core of the event: the sessions? It's better than ever! Great speakers. Awesome, timely topics for both IT and Devs. There's a whole lot more industry leaders, sessions, and even surprise speakers coming. MacTech Conference 2013 will be three full days — this year, we're adding a half day of content on the last day, and we'll end by 5pm on Friday. Not to mention our widely talked about evening events.

And, we're really excited about our new venue: The Manhattan Beach Marriott. It's a beautiful venue, much closer to LAX, overlooks a golf course, and is an even better deal on guest rooms. As it did last year, the discounted guest room block is expected to sell out, so don't wait (you must be registered for MacTech Conference to reserve).
Register by October 31st, and save $300 on Pre-Registration Pricing!
