The McAfee® ePolicy Orchestrator® Administration guided on-demand course from

McAfee® Education Services offers you comprehensive and focused multimedia training

from experienced instructors in a self-paced environment at your desk. The course delivers

recorded instructor presentations, use-case scenarios from McAfee best practices and

experiences, and hands-on lab exercises. You’ll have email access to the instructor to get

your questions answered.

The course offers in-depth training on the benefits of the centralized management and

deployment of McAfee products using McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (McAfee ePO™)

software. Enabling administrators to fully understand the capabilities of their security

solution not only reduces the risks of misconfiguration, but also ensures that an

organization gets the maximum protection from installation.
