One for the apple cert gurus please...
We are starting to put macbooks into our organization and to be fair I dont know anything about them to the point I could'nt do something basic if you asked me. The boss, of course not thinking about this just assumes we all know about them. By the way we are running bootcamp to run windows on them so it seems a tad pointless IMHO.
Anyway back to topic...
I dont think it will hurt my career any if I learnt all about the mac OS and how to support it ( forget the bootcamp bit ). I'm willing to put the learning in from scratch and have looked at the fairly basic certs and their career level pages. I believe I want to go for Apple Certified Support Professional (ACSP) 10.8 ( is that the current OS? ) but then saw Apple Certified Associate - Mac Integration 10.8. Can someone explain the differences please ( still think I want the ACSP )
Now assuming the ACSP cert is any good can you easily make a VM onto a normal desktop PC ( I dont want to buy a mac that much at present ). Is there any kind of 90-180 free version of the O/S or similar to trial?
Again if there is a trial somewhere is there a recommended training guide for this cert?
As said please forgive if this all sounds rubbish but as said I'm willing to put the time in ( this is how I learnt citrix from scratch ) to get me to the level of a 'apple support person'
Cheers for any advice.
