  Operating System Deployment for IT Professionals

 EUR 4,495 p.P. (net), incl. accomodation, breakfast & lunch

This is a unique chance to spend 5 full days with two of the foremost experts in the OS deployment sector, and learn to master and extend the ConfigMgr and MDT platform. In addition to the comprehensive lab material, and many live demos, time is set off for real life deployment issues where the instructors discuss and solve problems that you bring to the training. As always we take you for lunch at a nearby restaurant, where the discussions continue. It’s almost like free consultancy.

In this training you learn to build and customize rock solid deployment solutions using the new System Center Configuration Manager platform and Microsoft Deployment Toolkit (MDT). You also get a thorough technical drill-down to changes in the Windows 10 and Windows Server 2016 platforms. During this hands-on lab you will be in the Administrator seat of a full MDT and ConfigMgr environment.

We meet on Sunday evening

To go through the week´s agenda so that you are all set for five days of intensive hands-on labs. Be sure to get a good night´s sleep!
