Part 2 of CUCM administrator training has begun, and working from home this week. Let’s hope my internet connection doesn’t start acting up again!! I thought we would have the same instructor as ACUCW1, but nope. And this time it’s a 6-student all remote login class, which is good. That … Continue Reading “ACUCW2 Course this week”
I have to admit though, since I posted that one TARP training I had to do years ago where ALMS was so shitty doing the video, it’s gotten better. That’s the one consolation to having to do this training every year I guess. And what, 6 years later it’s still the same person hosting the CBT. Is that… Continue Reading “TARP training every year”
Administering Cisco Unified Communications Workspace part 1. Training. Again. Version 11.5 this time. All week and started Monday. Definitely a basic, entry level course. I did the v10.5 in 2016, and this adds little to build upon that older one aside from clarifying knowledge already gained thru doing … Continue Reading “CUCM (ACUCW1) Training – again”

Lately I’ve been finding myself spending so much time on the computer doing computer based training (CBT)… I’m spending more and more time with this guy, listening to him talk and lecture, sometimes drifting off as he just continues to babble. As it goes, I’m spending almost more… Continue Reading “Putting in CBT time”
Does this man looks very familiar? Does he look naggingly familiar? Sickeningly familiar maybe? Well he does to me! That’s because this required Threat Awareness and Reporting Program (TARP) training on the Army Learning Management System (ALMS) is a painful bitch to complete because it’s… Continue Reading “Mandatory training is agonizing”
Furloughs… hmmm, joke’s on me. I was supposed to be excepted and continue working, but this morning the headsheds changed the approved excepted employee list and I was dropped off. Oh well. Now it’s going to be a challenge without pay.
I guess I and 799,000 other federal employees will have… Continue Reading “Caught in the furlough”
