Class Overview

This training is the classroom version of the classic and invaluable Microsoft Resource Kits we have relied on over the years.  So, if you want to dive deep into Windows Server 2019 and Windows 10 setup, management, and troubleshooting, and also learn how to get the most out of your Microsoft infrastructure where Windows Server and Client work together, this is the training for you.  Get practical guidance on configuring, managing, troubleshooting, and tuning performance to help optimize speed, reliability, functionality, and efficiency.

 

This training shows you how to plan, configure and install your Windows environment, keep it running at its best, and fix it if it breaks.  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 class is spent on practical hands-on-labs and exercises, based on real-world scenarios and methods verified to work in production environments.  The best part, you get access to all the sample files and scripts, including a solution that will build up the complete lab environment when you return home from the training.

There’s no end to what you’ll accomplish with practical, step-by-step instruction from experts who have done it all in live production environments and can tell what works outside a lab.  If you want to evolve as an administrator and learn how to get the most out of your Microsoft infrastructure, there is no better opportunity to learn that and more.
