Mac

The days of “you can’t use a Mac” are well and truly behind us. There is nothing that a Mac can’t do in the classroom or the boardroom. We can show you ways of utilising some of the amazing features and apps available and help you be more efficient by letting the technology get out of the way and just let you get on with what you need to do.

MakUpYourMind’s staff are certified to train on topics at every level of the Mac spectrum from the basics of getting to know your Mac to configuring Mac OS X Server and deployment and management of iOS devices in small to large organisations.
