Havard Associates Symantec Altiris Training


Havard Associates is a Symantec Authorised Training Partner offering official vendor training, on-site or in the cloud, as well as offering our own training courses. We specialise in providing high quality on-site instructor led training - one of the most cost effective methods for a company to gain the knowledge and skills required to effectively leverage an IT product. The cost to an organisation for travel, accommodation and subsistence of staff whilst on training courses can be eliminated. 

This means as many as 12 people could attend an on-site course for no more outlay than sending a few employees to a scheduled class.

Often a company is limited as to how many employees they can send to a scheduled training course because of the cost of the course itself. An on-site training course will typically be similar in cost to sending only two or three people on a scheduled course. All you need for each delegate is a computer with a browser with Internet to access our hosted lab environment.

Training Needs Analysis (TNA)  Don’t waste valuable time and money on the wrong training.  Investing in knowledge requires knowledge in what is required.  We can help identify what skills are needed and provide the appropriate recommendations for training to fill your requirements.


Training Options

Instructor Led On-Site Training Courses

On-site training brings the training course and instructor to a location of your choice. If you have a group of employees that need to be trained and you cannot send them to a remote site for training, consider bringing a trainer to you. On-site training can be delivered at a convenient time at your premises using your equipment or if you prefer full provision of the classroom can be provided.


Havard Associates professional training courses provide each student with a perfect bound training manual, notepad and pen.

Virtual Training

Virtual training elliminates the costs associated with travel and accommodation by delivering the training via the internet in a virtual classroom environment with virtual hands-on labs. Students will be taught in a live instructor led environment using the same course slides, materials and labs as they would have in a physical classroom environment but in the comfort of your office or their own home.


All that is required is a computer with a suitable internet connection.

Bootcamp (v7.1)

Unable to commit to more than a 5 day class?  If you are motivated and happy to work at a fast pace consider our Boot Camp training. We have been delivering Symantec Altiris Boot Camps for over 10 years with great success for customers who need the knowledge but cannot afford the time commitment of separate courses. 

Typically a Boot Camp is 50% cheaper!

The Boot Camp combines the content from the Symantec Management Platform 7.1 (SMP), Client Management Suite 7.1 (CMS) and Deployment Solution 7.1 (DS) courses into a single 5 day delivery. Compared with attending the individual courses, the Boot Camp will save you time and reduce your costs allowing your training budget to go further. 

You will receive the same 3 Perfect bound course manuals as if you attended the separate courses. The accelerated training covers the key aspects of SMP and CMS, including Deployment Solution.
