This certificate gives students the necessary tools to install, configure, support and troubleshoot Microsoft Windows Server 2012 R2. This track covers the server side with Windows 2012 Server and Windows 2012 installation, configuration and administration courses. The three courses collectively cover implementing, managing, maintaining, and provisioning services and infrastructure in a Windows Server 2012 environment. While there is some cross-over in skills and tasks across the courses, this course primarily covers the initial implementation and configuration of core services including Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS), networking services, and Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2012 configuration. The three courses prepare the IT Professional for the MCSA Server 2012, Microsoft Certified Solutions Associate.
