SetFocus Meets Client Demands With a SharePoint Bootcamp

SetFocus Delivers the First SharePoint Training Experience in New Jersey

PARSIPPANY, NJ--(Marketwire - October 29, 2007) - SetFocus, a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner for Learning Solutions (CPLS), announced the launch of a SharePoint Bootcamp in late November for two weeks of intense SharePoint training at their headquarters in Parsippany, NJ. This is the first training of its kind in New Jersey.

The bootcamp is a two part series; each part consists of five 10-hour days, for a total of 100 hours in Microsoft SharePoint Server 2007 Developer training. The first week of the bootcamp concentrates on the fundamental building blocks of Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 (WSS) and the implementation of Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 (MOSS). The second week will focus on implementing these newly developed skills into a project. The first week is a prerequisite of the second week.

In anticipation of unparallel demand for professionals with strong SharePoint skills, SetFocus is holding this course approximately two months before the kick off of their Master's Program(SM) SharePoint track which will begin on Feb. 11, 2008. According to SimplyHire.com, demand for SharePoint developers has increased 65% since May 2006 with average salaries ranging from $90,000 - $110,000 in the New York Metro area.

"Microsoft SharePoint is one of the most sought after technologies for our corporate partners as well as many other businesses in the country," says Jonathan Lefkowitz, Vice President of Sales and Marketing. "The demand for professionals with these skills has created a great opportunity for .NET developers to upgrade their skills and command top dollar pay. This is a great example of the SetFocus business model. We have identified a significant skills gap in SharePoint and have moved quickly to develop a curriculum track to begin to produce SharePoint Developers to meet the current hiring demands of our partners."
