Apple Deployment Workshop

The Apple Deployment Workshop is a 4 hour Apple certified workshop where the attendees will learn how to deploy company owned or user owned iOS devices in a business.


Apple devices provide superior opportunities to businesses when used in their mobile strategy. One of the key benefits to deployment of Apple devices is the fact that these devices are incredibly easy to deploy and manage, even at enormous scale.  However, it’s important that any administrator has a detailed knowledge of all the programs and technologies used in the deployment process, so they are best able to assess, plan for and respond to any challenges in the process. 


For this reason, in this workshop we will cover:


  • What role MDM, VPP and DEP play in device deployment 

  • What challenges you will run into when deploying devices

  • Overview what an Apple ID is and when/how its needed 

  • Understand how iOS devices can separate work and personal data 

  • Understand the benefits of device supervision for company owned devices. 


Course Topics: 


Introductions and course overview


Common themes to be covered and explanation of the classroom setup for hands-on activities, Apple ID and the role it plays in deployment.


User owned and managed


Difficulties encountered when manually configuring devices, using Mobile Device Management to improve the deployment experience for users and for IT, using the Volume Purchase program to enable app distribution and protect company data.

Using the Device Enrollment Program to streamline deploying company-owned devices, decisions a company needs to make to allow personalization of a company-owned device or restrict functionality based on user roles.

The prerequisites for attending these workshops


To attend the these classes, we strongly recommend that the candidate has:

  • Basic computer navigational skills,

  • Basic understanding of networking

  • Basic background in help desk is preferred

  • If you are new too iOS, but have a background in tech support on other operating systems, we recommend attending our macOS Technical basics course before attending.


Working with Hands on Labs


At Core Group Training, we believe that the best way to learn is by doing it. All of our courses contain a high percentage of practical, hands on time on the technology, guided by an experienced trainer. 


The benefits of this approach are:


  • By learning in a hands-on environment, you engage deeply with materials and concepts, preparing you for problems you could encounter while on the job.

  • When you engage in hands-on learning, you become familiar with the way materials look, feel, and function. When you undergo hands-on training, you have the opportunity to work with your materials in a simulated real world environment.

  • Practical learning brings the topics to life - One study showed that students only remembered 20% of the information presented in lecture format, while students remembered 75% of information they learned firsthand.

  • By interacting and working in a discussion based learning environment, you often undertake practical projects that need you to consult with instructors and peers, and rely on the practical experience of others.
