David Papkin

My Name is David Papkin. I am a Sr. Trainer and Consultant.

I have been in the IT field for many years, feel shy to say how long! I have been a trainer over 15 years. The evolution of  Microsoft classes to use virtualization for classroom delivery has been quite an enjoyable journey. The richness of features, stability and robustness of Hyper-V in Server 2012 R2 has me excited. I have been trained in 4 different hypervisors and I can honestly say that I am looking forward to promote this awesome hypervisor.  Adding the Hyper-V role and managing from the server console is is simple.  The revision of the Server 2012 classes to include 2012 R2 has come at great timing. I  am currently teaching Cisco, Microsoft (Azure, Exchange, Hyper-V, Lync,  Server 2012, Sharepoint and System Center), Redhat and Vmware classes, and hope to meet like minded trainers and technologists to share our experiences and improve together.

I do training of:


Lync 2013
Exchange 2013
Server 2012 R2
Sharepoint 2013
System Center 2012


 CCNA Security


 vSphere 5
