Course Objectives

What's this course about? Just about everything you'll ever want to know about Windows Administration in twelve intensive and information-packed days. This course will give a beginning or current administrator the skills to succeed at a higher, more senior level. The course is intensive and designed only for those who are committed to learning and the intense demands of the program.
The Intensive Training is tailored to the needs of the class and combines the course materials of my Windows Server administration and Windows desktop administration courses. The materials are combined into 12 intensive training days and tailored to the needs of the attendees. Although you can think of it as a Windows boot camp or sorts, the training is not designed for those without either prior Windows support or Windows Server experience.

The intensive 12-day course is the equivalent of three 40-hour college courses. To be fair to other intensive course attendees, all students must have a solid technical background that includes at least 12 to 18 months in a Windows support or Windows administrative role.

Who is This Training For?

At the time I designed this course, there was no other course like it in the United States or anywhere else in the world. This course is for Windows support personnel and Windows administrators who are serious about taking their Windows Server administration careers to the next level, and have some prior experience either in support or in server administration.

This training seminar is not meant as an examine prep and is not designed to make you a paper administrator. The course focuses on the real world and is designed to take your current skills to the next level and to help you succeed in real world scenarios.
