Our training partner Dr. Stephan Rein offers two online workshops on Bareos administration (respectively “Bareos Part I” and “Bareos Part II”) in May (suitable for European and Asian time zones, and June (suitable for European and American east cost timezones) 2021. The first course will take place on May 7, 11, 12, and 16, for a full day. The second workshop is designed as a half-day course instead: Bareos Part I (May 31-June 4, 2021, Monday through Friday) and Bareos Part II (June 8-10, 2021, Tuesday through Thursday).
Bareos Part I will take place on four full days and starts at 7 a.m. (CEST, UTC +1). We have chosen such an early time so that interested users from other time zones, for example the Near and Middle East, can also participate. On the other hand, the second course is a half-day course, which should leave enough time for daily work. It starts at 2 pm (CEST, UTC +1).
