This official Microsoft course combines five days of instructor-led training with additional e-Learning content to provide students with the knowledge and skills that are required to manage accounts and resources, maintain server resources, monitor server performance, and safeguard data in a Microsoft Windows Server™ 2003 environment.
This is the first course in the Systems Administrator and Systems Engineer tracks for Windows Server 2003 and serves as the entry point for other courses in the Windows Server 2003 curriculum.
This five-day instructor-led course forms part of QA's Fastrack2Windows 2003 MCSE programme. By combining Microsoft Official Curriculum with a focused and accelerated delivery, an individual can gain a deep understanding of Windows 2003 technologies in the shortest possible time. With a quicker pace of delivery, these courses are designed for individuals with existing Windows experience who need to achieve MCSE level skills.
Given the nature of "Fastrack" courses, delegates will need to be prepared to spend study time in the evenings to fully cover the syllabus.
