My name is Korey Rideout and I’m a Sales Associate here at Mac Outpost. On the side I’m in charge of the Mac portion of our training courses. I’ve been working in sales for the past six years and have always been appalled by the lack of end user support after or even before the sale. When I was offered the opportunity to teach, I definitely jumped at the chance.
We could all use a little refresher now and again but I think I speak for us all when being overwhelmed on a new operating system can feel like we’re drowning in a sea of information. I haven’t been teaching here at Mac Outpost for long, but I’ve already helped over 100 people in our intro courses and haven’t had more fun at work in quite a long time.
I was educated in the computer field at Fanshawe College and was exposed to the industry even as a young adult but had never owned a Mac. I purchased my first Mac about four years ago so I could experience more than just a couple operating systems. Just like everyone else, I had questions! When I sat down to create the curriculum, I realized I knew
the answers to all the questions I had when I first started so I implemented them into the teach-outs.
Remember, just because I’m standing up and talking doesn’t mean I wasn’t in your shoes at one time. I know what it’s like to swim in that ocean. Come join either our free 30 minute intro courses or mark down an evening with me on your calendar and we can get to know each other and explore
the fantastic world of OS X!
