Course Details

IT Industry demands that professionals cover the latest technology on the marketplace. Many IT pro’s separate themselves from their competitors by achieving certifications in the most current technologies and giving themselves skill-sets that are unmatched by many of their peers.

With this course, students get certification and skills on the latest Microsoft technologies, including Server 2012 and Windows 8. CMIT has also added a Windows 7 course, allowing students to easily see the changes between the two platforms and excel on both Operating Systems. Server 2012 and Windows 8 brought about many changes including an updated version of Hyper V, a new version of Windows Task Manager, an IP Address Management Role, Windows Store & ARM support just to name a few. Especially in our current economic climate, IT employers demand that applicants have the most current skill-set available. Keeping one’s knowledge base at the cutting edge of technology has never been more important.

This course includes the following features:

  • Instructor-led demonstrations and visual presentations to develop your skills based on real world scenarios.
  • Unlike a live class, you can fast-forward, repeat or rewind all your lectures. This gives you all the benefit of hands-on training with the flexibility of doing it around your schedule 24/7.
  • Flash Cards and Education Games are also provided throughout the course.
  • Practice exams prepare you for your exams. These exams are on average 100 questions to ensure you are 100% prepared if you are taking a certification exam.
  • You can also interact and collaborate with other students through our forums, student contributions and announcement features.

This course is also intended to provide foundation configuration skills for Enterprise Desktop/Device Support Technicians (EDSTs) who provide Tier 2 support to users who run Windows desktops and devices within a Windows domain environment in medium to large enterprise organizations. Students who seek certification in the 70-687 Windows 8.1 Configuring exam will also benefit from this course.
