Microsoft Official Curriculum on Demand 20412 - Configuring Advanced Windows Server 2012 Services


Learn how to provision and configure advanced services using Windows Server 2012 with this five-day course. This course is part three, in a series of three courses that provides the skills and knowledge necessary to implement a core Windows Server 2012 infrastructure in an existing enterprise environment. The three courses will collectively cover implementing, managing, maintaining and provisioning services and infrastructure in a Windows Server 2012 environment.

Beginn: 23.05.2016

Liebe Kollegen der PROKODA, das Excel 2010/2013 für Fortgeschrittene war Dank der tollen Trainerin sehr kurzweilig und effektiv. Wir hatten eine Excel Datei die vorbereitet war, in welcher wir Übungsaufgaben absolvieren konnten und uns diese auch am Ende des Trainings per USB Stick mitnehmen konnten. Damit kann auch im Büro nachvollzogen werden, was wir konkret bearbeitet haben. Besser als wenn nur die gedruckte Unterlagen zur Verfügung stehen. Das Seminar wurde sehr professionell, dabei aber individuell gehalten. Alle Fragen wurden geklärt und auf individuelle Probleme eingegangen. Dank der kleinen Gruppe war dies möglich. Die Inhalte waren auf den Zeitrahmen angepasst und konnten so ohne Probleme absolviert werden. Insgesamt ein rundes Seminar. Viele Grüße
