Setting Expectations

For the purpose of this course, we will discuss IQ Server’s set of reference policies, which are those ‘out-of-box’ policies.  While these out-of-box policies are very good and many of our customers use as-is, other organizations create their own policies.  Your organization may have policies other than those in this course. Consult your legal team.

Answers to the quizes were incorrect

Several quizes had always the same answer set. This must be an error in the data?

Great starter course

Really helps to explain what the IQ Server is going to report to the user. It's a good demonstration of what that report will look like when you open it up.
