Microsoft Certified Solutions Associate (MCSA): Windows Server 2012 R2 - Installing & Configuring (70-410) Series 2
PrerequisitesSpecial£


Description

This instructor-led fee based course has been commissioned by the UIS through a third party company.

You will receive hands-on instruction and practice installing and configuring Windows Server 2012, including Windows Server 2012 R2, in this Microsoft Official Course.

This course is part one in a series of three courses that provides the skills and knowledge necessary to implement a core Windows Server 2012 infrastructure in an existing enterprise environment. The three courses collectively cover implementing, managing, maintaining and provisioning services and infrastructure in a Windows Server 2012 environment.

Although there is some cross-over of skills and tasks across these courses, this course focuses on the initial implementation and configuration of core services, such as Networking, Storage, Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS), Group Policy, File and Print Services, and Hyper-V.

This course maps directly to and is the preferred choice for hands-on preparation for the Installing and Configuring Windows Server 2012: Exam 410, which is the first of three exams required for the MCSA: Windows Server 2012 certification.

For those who wish to commence with the MTA entry-level credential from Microsoft there are a number of Online courses listed in Related courses below that would be relevant.
