My Mentored Learning, Inc.
Like the Dark Knight, Dale Meredith swoops in and saves the day when no one else can. Dale's expertise is in explaining difficult concepts and ensuring his students have an actionable knowledge on the course material. Straddling the line of fun and function, Dale's instruction is memorable and entertaining. Dale has been a Microsoft Certified Trainer for over 20 years and a Certified Ethical Hacker and instructor for EC-Council for the past 15 years. Prior to becoming a IT trainer Dale spent 8 years in IT management roles. Dale's priority to maintain personal knowledge and understanding of current trends in training, technology, and applications has led to many opportunities such as: training various divisions at the Department of Homeland Security during their Novell to Microsoft transition and implementing and managing networks using Microsoft's Server Platform. Dale also specializes in Active Directory, Exchange Server, IIS, PowerShell, SharePoint, System Center/Desktop Deployment, and Private Cloud. Along with authoring for Pluralsight, consulting and IT classroom trainings, you can catch Dale on stage speaking at IT conferences helping IT teams keep their companies safe, relevant, and "breach" aware. Outside of the professional sphere Dale spends quite a bit of his personal time giving back by speaking at adult and youth non-profit community gatherings and posting on his 'Dale Dumbs IT Down' social media sites. Dale uses these speaking engagements and social media sites to 'Dumb Down IT' concepts with the intent to help everyone be safe and smart with their technology and personal devices
