PrerequisitesSpecial£

Mon 26 Jun - Fri 30 Jun 2017

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, managing storage and computer by using Windows Server 2016, including Windows Server 2016 vB, 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 2016 infrastructure in an existing enterprise environment. The three courses collectively cover implementing, managing, maintaining and provisioning services and infrastructure in a Windows Server 2016 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 https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/learning/mcsa-windows-server-2016-certification.aspx#cp-section3-head, which is the first of three exams required for MCSA: Windows Server 2016 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.
