Alphorm training: mastering Mac OS X 10.11 El Capitan

If you have recently purchased a Mac, it may be running under OS X 10.11 El Capitan. As a reminder, this is the penultimate major version of the Apple operating system for Apple (released in September 2015), the latest being macOS 10.12 Sierra. If this is your first OS X machine and your knowledge is therefore quite limited, it can be relatively difficult to master OS X 10.11 El Capitan at the start.

We had the opportunity to refine our knowledge of the OS through the training of Bleyzat (trainer and independent consultant) on Alphorm. Entitled “Mac OS X 10.11 El Capitan Client”, It is divided into two parts:“Acquire the fundamentals”Proposes to master the configuration of Macintosh clients for a more pleasant work and increased productivity, and“Master advanced techniques”, Lets you get to know Mac OS X 10.11 El Capitan from top to bottom and pass its ACSP certification (Apple Certified Support Professional) with confidence.
