Training Details

Class Schedule

This class is five days, Monday-Friday. On Friday, we’ll finish up the “formal” coursework by 12:00 so that people can catch afternoon flights home. However, we’ll stick around until 5:00 working with anyone who wants to cover any other topics or revisit anything we’ve covered in the week. We typically order pizza on Friday, and most students leave between 2:00 and 3:00.


Pricing varies by location and class type. US classes are USD $2895, European classes are 2495 Euro.

Classroom Technology

We have a full Citrix environment set up that we can use during the class. However, we tend to spend most of our time at the whiteboard discussing architecture issues.

Also, since we have Internet access at each location, you can bring your own laptops (although they’re not necessary for the class).

Audio Recordings

We use a digital audio recorder to record every single class. We then post MP3 versions of each module to a private website so that students can re-listen to key areas later on. (And no, these MP3′s are not available for sale separately.) We also provide online access to the PDF of the training material for our students.


You can view the list of available classes on Shawn’s website

Group Discounts

If your organization has three or more people who are interested in attending this class, then you are entitled to a $250 discount per student.  Contact Shawn via ( registration and payment details.


You may cancel your registration for a full refund up to 15 days before the class. Within 14 days, a 50% refund will be applied. You will then receive a 50% credit if you register or an additional class within 6 months. (This essentially means that you can change your registration at any time without a cost penalty.)


A week before the class, we’ll set up an email distribution list for the students of the class. That way, we can discuss details about what you want to get out of the class, products you’re using, etc. In fact, the training material is customized for each class. Therefore, if there’s something that you want to cover, we’ll make sure that it gets covered. We’ll also discuss class start times, directions, and any other information you might need.

Thursday Night Happy Hour

On the Thursday night of the class, we’ll all go out for dinner and drinks. Those of you traveling with friends or spouses are welcome to bring them along.

The Bottom Line

This class is nothing like you’ve experienced before. It’s deep. It’s technical. It’s taught by experts who do NOT work for Citrix or Microsoft. We’ve delivered this full five-day class more than 50 times since 2004. The feedback forms from the students are consistent: This class rocks!
