Hi all,
Hope this is the right forum to post this. Does anyone know who the Apple Authorised Training Centres are in New Zealand? Are there any? Wanting to sit the OS X Support Essentials Exam soon, which has to be done is person. The Apple website doesn't have New Zealand or Australia as an option. -
Has anyone else done this exam in NZ?

Thanks in advance! :)

I did some training and exams in Auckland a few years ago but it looks like the company I did it with has closed down.


Doesn't look like there is an Apple training centre in NZ any more. :(

That's a shame! I'm going to the ACMP and ACiP exams instead. They seem to be able to be done online. How did you get on for study tools? Did you buy the $400 AppleCare Technician Training programme from the Apple website? Thanks
I take it the ACMP is a higher level than the ACSP, or is the other way around?

Never fear, worked it all out and what I'm going to do. Turn out there is a AATC for exams in NZ - Cyclone Computers ( Apple didn't have them listed, but they definitely do the exams!
