Masters Education Program

PARSEC’s Masters Education Program (MEP) isn't your typical online technical seminar.

What if each month you could be a part of a seminar that is geared towards creating best practices for legacy and state-of-art systems with topics such as OpenVMS Crash-Dump Analysis or IP Filtering on UNIX? Would it impress your boss if you learned new methods to ensure current relevance and utility for your company? Would it elevate your job performance, or help you solve a vexing problem? If so, save your seat now in PARSEC's next MEP!

Every month you will learn information inspired by actual case studies that you can apply on-the-spot. We pack technical and practical material into a comfortable 2 hour online session that tops off with ample time for Q&A and valued feedback. Bonus! You get exclusive access to download our extensive documentation at the time of each seminar. Here's a sample list of some of our past seminars:

  • Road Trip! VMS Bootcamp 2016 Conference Report
  • Bare-Metal System Recovery
  • Cleaning Out the Cruft on OpenVMS
  • Systemd and Other Major Changes in Redhat Linux 7
  • Monitoring OpenVMS with Open-Source SNMP Tools
  • OpenVMS Performance Tools
  • IP Filtering on Unix

As a perk of being a much appreciated PARSEC support customer, each session is free. If your company is not yet benefiting from PARSEC’s support, you can join any MEP for a modest cost per person. Furthermore, if you sign up for a telephone support contract with us, within 30 days of attending the MEP, we will credit the seminar cost to your support invoice. For as long as you’re a support customer, you will not only enjoy the peace of mind in knowing you’re support needs are covered, but future seminars will be free as well.

Intriguing Cases seen on OpenVMS in 2023

As you can likely imagine, those of us at the PARSEC Group often encounter unusual, or intriguing, cases throughout a year. Sometimes they are just of the "oh, I didn't know that was possible" type, while other times they are near disasters with massive efforts to address them using unusual techniques.

In today's seminar, we'll discuss some of our favorites that occurred this past year.

Normally, a table of contents would be provided that show what topics will be discussed. This seminar session will be a bit unusual in that it will be a secret right up to the time you download the material. We'll set up the situation, talk briefly about it, then discuss the methods that had to be utilized to help address the situation. In some cases, a further discussion of "how do I avoid that problem" will also occur.

No worries if your site was part of one of these cases, all computer names and contact names will be changed or removed to protect both the innocent and the guilty alike. That secret remains locked behind the password safes of our minds.

Thus, stay tuned for the material and we look forward to you joining us as we celebrate the end of the year.


This training session is scheduled - 1:00pm MST. We link to to convert to your local time. Note that this is planned as a 2 hour presentation to provide sufficient time to cover all of the topics. To register or to ask any questions, please contact us via e-mail to or fill out the inquiry page.
