So if you want to dive deep into Windows Server 2019 and Windows 10, install, manage, and troubleshoot and learn how to get the most out of your Microsoft infrastructure where Windows Server and Client work together, then it is the training for you.

This training shows you how to plan, configure and install your Windows environment, keep it running, and repair it if broken. You still get all the coverage you need for the Windows Server 2016 Server installations that remain part of your environment.

Over 60 percent of the time you spend in the class is spent on hands-on hands-on labs and exercises, based on real-life scenarios and methods verified to work in production environments. The best part, you get access to all the test files and scripts, including a solution that builds up the entire lab environment when you get home from the workout.

There is no end to what you should do with practical, step-by-step instruction from experts who have done everything in live production environments and can tell what works outside a lab. If you want to develop as an administrator and learn to make the most of your Microsoft infrastructure, there is no better way to learn it and more.
