Happy Holidays from LRS Education Services
Happy Holidays from LRS Education Services
In lieu of exchanging gifts during the holiday season, each year the LRS Education Services Team makes a donation to a local charity in honor of our client relationships. We are excited to announce that our 19th annual recipient is Central Illinois Foodbank! We appreciate your business, and wish you the best during the holidays and a prosperous 2018!

While our instructor-led training courses remain the preferred method of learning from our clients, we continue to add options for our non-traditional students. Most Microsoft Official Courses have an on-demand option available that allows for learning (with fully functional lab environments) 24/7 for 90 or 180 days. In addition, instructor-led classes that LRS delivers using online labs include a subscription to the recordings of all class lectures and demos as well as access to the lab environment for up to 6 months after completion.* So feel free to test out your new knowledge and skills in the lab environment before putting them into production! For more information on LRS learning options click HERE.

Windows 10 Course Sits at The Top
According to Microsoft, the 10982: Supporting and Troubleshooting Windows 10 course is the top training in North America utilizing Microsoft On Demand delivery. It is number 2 in traditional instructor-led/virtual training areas.* If you have deployed Windows 10 within your organization; join us to learn the ins-and-outs of supporting and troubleshooting this dynamic operating system!

NIST Cyber Security Training Takes Off
We are excited to announce that we have added several NIST Cyber Security Framework (NCSF) training courses to our public schedule. Many of our clients have already reacted to the need for cybersecurity training that aligns with Executive Order 13800 signed in May 2017 by President Trump. The NCSF training courses outline current cybersecurity challenges, such as those recently released in the McAfee Labs 2018 Threats Predictions Report, and train organizations how to mitigate these risks using best practices from both the private and public sectors. Classes are available for individuals who need a basic understanding of the Framework to perform their daily jobs as executives, accountants, lawyers, IT professionals, etc., in addition to in-depth training for cybersecurity engineers, testers or operations professionals.

VMware Technologies for the Software-Defined Data Center
Are you ready to learn more about how virtualization and software-defined storage can afford you with efficiencies in your data center? The Authorized VMware vSphere: Install, Configure, Manage course prepares System Admins and System Engineers to install, configure and administer a vSphere infrastructure for an organization of any size. It is the foundational course for understanding all VMware Data Center technologies (Cloud, Network Virtualization, Desktop and Mobility).

Thank you again for trusting LRS Education Services with your training needs in 2017. We look forward to serving you more in the upcoming year. Please contact us with any training related questions, including areas in which you may not of thought of us in the past. We have expanded and can now access many resources and partners outside LRS Education Services!
