At Guru Labs we wrote the GL550 "Enterprise Linux Security Admin" class
and have been teaching and refining it over 5 years. Kerberos is a major
part of the class. Kerberos concepts, components, implementation and
best practices are all covered. Also, configuring and using Kerberos
with many different network services such as NFS, Apache, PostgreSQL,
LDAP, Sendmail, Postfix, Dovecot, CyrusIMAP, along with the standard
services. During the course of writing the class and lab exercises we
ended up filling quite a few bugs in various bug trackers as we
exercised little used code paths.

The training class spends about 60% doing real world detailed lab
exercises and the very thick student manual is a great reference.

You can find more info on the class here:
