“MacTech Magazine” has had great response to its MacTech Boot Camp and has already sold through the allocation of early bird tickets for the Dallas event on April 27. Early bird pricing for the May 18 Boston event is about to expire, as well.

Early bird pricing is still in place for MacTech Boot Camp Los Angeles (July 27) and Chicago (Aug 31). Attendees can save US$200 by registering early.

MacTech Boot Camp Dallas is being held at the Hyatt Regency DFW.  It’s a nice hotel, and people from outside driving range can even fly in, take the shuttle and avoid the car rental. Boston is being held in Cambridge at the Royal Sonesta Hotel.

“Our testing center partners, MacAmerica and Future Media Concepts, will be doing a specially scheduled Apple Certification Testing session the day before each event (Dallas and Boston, respectively) to make it convenient for those who want to attend MacTech Boot Camp, but also get their testing out of the way,” says Neil Ticktin, publisher/editor-in-chief, “MacTech Magazine.” “(It’s the day before to optimize people’s travel time, and since they study before MacTech Boot Camp for the test, it makes sense to do.)  Prior to the exam, there will be a proctor moderated group study session for an hour or more, so that attendees can get that last minute studying in.”

Valued at $299, the price for MacTech Boot Camp attendees is $199 for testing. Any current Apple Training exam can be taken. More info can be found at https://www.mactech.com/bootcamp/certification .
