SharePoint 2016 Planning and Administering

Description

This five-day course will provide you with the knowledge and skills to plan and administer a Microsoft SharePoint 2016 environment. The course teaches you how to deploy, administer, and troubleshoot your SharePoint environment. This course also provides guidelines, best practices, and considerations that help you optimize your SharePoint deployment.

This is the first in a sequence of two courses for IT professionals and is aligned with the SharePoint 2016 IT Pro certification.

Prerequisites

Before attending this course, students must have knowledge of:

  • Software management in a Windows Server 2012 or Windows Server 2012 R2 enterprise server environment.
  • Deploying and managing applications natively, virtually, and in the cloud.
  • Administering IIS.
  • Configuring AD DS for use in authentication, authorization, and as a user store.
  • Managing an application remotely by using Windows PowerShell 4.0.
  • Managing databases and server roles in SQL Server.
  • Connecting applications to SQL Server.
  • Implementing claims-based security.
  • Using Microsoft Hyper-V virtual machines.


An ideal candidate for this course must have at least one year of experience with deploying and administering multiple SharePoint 2013 farms across a large enterprise. Because many customers have not upgraded from SharePoint 2010, a candidate can also have at least two years of experience with SharePoint 2010. However, they also must understand the differences between SharePoint 2010 and SharePoint 2013, particularly in terms of hybridization.

By far the most competitve price we found, which included exam vouchers, hands on labs, practice test and a true Master of Cyber Security concepts as our Instructor. Franklin Mesa was the best trainer I have ever had and i walked out certified on the last day of my CompTIA Security+ certification bootcamp. 

Marc Alfonso - CompTIA Security + Student

 

The Academy is one of the best educational values for today's job market.  I studied hard and got certified (A+ and N+).  Even though I had no prior IT experience, I now have a good job replacing obsolete computers in hospitals throughout the country.  At my job interview, I just slid my test scores and certification across the table to the interviewer, who is now my boss.  I was hired the next day.  

Not bad for a 65 year old.

John Arnett- Student
