Microsoft: Automating Administration with Windows PowerShell

We have partnered with TrainCanada to offer Microsoft PowerShell training for members. 

You will learn how you can remotely manage multiple Windows-based servers and automate day-to-day management and administrative tasks with Windows PowerShell 4.0. The course focuses on primary Windows PowerShell command-line features and techniques, and will provide pre-requisite skills supporting a broad range of Microsoft products. 

This course is broadly intended for students who want to use Windows PowerShell to automate administrative tasks from the command line, using any Microsoft or independent software vendor (ISV) product that supports Windows PowerShell manageability.

BENEFITS  

  • Digital courseware – The Microsoft official curriculum is highly interactive. Students can highlight, annotate, bookmark, copy/paste from the books. The student will always stay current with the latest revision because Microsoft will automatically populate their Skillpipe bookshelf with the latest once it is available. Digital books are theirs to keep permanently. 
  • Student labs – ctc TrainCanada offers a year of labs once the student takes the training. For students who want a refresher after the course has ended, ctc TrainCanada has an email address the student can send a request to. Labs are renewed/created for a 2-week period.
