    Frank,

    What is a Microsoft Technical Instructor, abnd how does it differ from a Microsoft Certified Trainer (MCT)?

    I thought "Official" Microsoft Training had to be done by MCTs?

    Hey Dave... Good questions! "Microsoft Official Curriculum (MOC)" must be taught by a "Microsoft Certified Trainer( MCT)". Both Symon and Phil have their MCTs and are both Microsoft employees. Phil happens to work in the "FAST University" group and his "job title" is "Microsoft Technical Instructor." MCT is just one of his many certifications. Hope to see you online!

    None of the date and times work for me. Can I register and watch a recorded session instead of the live one?
