There are two main reasons for this course. Firstly, this course supports the large numbers of customers still running Exchange 2003 or Exchange 2007 in upgrading their skills and environments to Exchange 2010 Service Pack 1 (SP1) and to help drive that adoption. Secondly, this course fills in a skills gap that currently exists in the portfolio and, while the content is not driven by the exam ODs, provide further support for the exams.

1.Upgrading skills to Exchange Server 2010 support within the Exchange Portfolio: The primary reason for the course development is to provide a single course to allow IT professionals who are currently experienced in and are running Exchange 2003 or Exchange 2007 environments, a fast-track method to upgrade their skills and to enable them to upgrade to Exchange 2010 SP1 and help drive that technology adoption, without having to take the other two Exchange 2010 courses and 10 days of training.

2.To fill a skills gap and provide further support for Exchange Server 2010 exams: The course will provide an accelerated skills-upgrade path and also provide additional support for the two Exchange Server 2010 exams, both of which are listed below. This course is not a direct mapping to the below exams; however, it is intended as an additional support for elements within these exams.

  • Exam 70-662 : TS : Exchange Server 2010, Configuring
  • Exam 70-663 : PRO : Designing and Deploying Messaging Solutions with Microsoft Exchange Server 2010

Target Audience:

This course is intended for IT professionals experienced with the technologies included in Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 or Exchange Server 2007. Delegates wishing to take this course should have a Technology Specialist or equivalent certification, or equivalent knowledge and experience, and be looking to upgrade their skills to Exchange Server 2010.

This IT professional is the senior administrator, or 'engineer' who acts as a technical lead over a team of administrators.
