Upgrading Your Skills to MCSA Windows Server 2012

Get hands-on instruction and practice configuring and implementing new features and functionality in Windows Server 2012, including Windows Server 2012 R2, in this five-day Microsoft Official Course. This course is designed for IT Professionals who want to upgrade their technical skills from Windows Server 2008 to Windows Server 2012 and Windows Server 2012 R2. It presumes a high level of knowledge about previous Windows Server technologies and skills equivalent to Microsoft Certified Solutions Associate (MCSA): Windows Server 2008 credential.

The course also covers Failover Clustering, Federation Services as well as access and information provisioning and protection technologies such as Dynamic Access Control and WAP integration with Federation Services and Workplace Join.

This course is not a product upgrade course, detailing considerations for migrating and upgrading your specific environment to Windows Server 2012. Rather, this course will update your existing Windows Server 2008 knowledge and skills to Windows Server 2012, including Windows Server 2012 R2.

This course maps directly to and is the preferred choice for hands-on preparation for MCSA exam 70-417: Upgrading Your Skills to MCSA Windows Server 2012, which is the upgrade exam for certifications that have qualifying upgrade paths.

The course will update their skill to Windows Server 2012 and Windows Server 2012 R2. Candidates suitable for this course would be:

  • Experienced Windows Server Administrators who have real world experience working in a Windows Server 2008 or Windows Server 2008 R2 enterprise environment
  • IT Professionals who have obtained the credential MCSA: Windows Server 2008 or a qualifying upgradeable certification or have equivalent knowledge
