Hi,

I graduated from university last year and got a 2:1 in computer networking. I am currently in a role at an academy as an IT Tech and I have been given the opportunity to go on some training. I have learnt CCNA and CCNP but have not taken the final exams.

I am looking at doing the "Installing and Configuring Windows Server 2012" training and the 410 exam. I have checked the prerequisites and feel I meet all of them.
After completing this course, students will be able to:


  • Install and configure Windows Server 2012.
  • Describe AD DS.
  • Manage Active Directory objects.
  • Automate Active Directory administration.
  • Implement IPv4.
  • Implement Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP).
  • Implement Domain Name System (DNS).
  • Implement IPv6.
  • Implement local storage.
  • Implement file and print services.
  • Implement Group Policy.
  • Secure Windows servers by using Group Policy Objects (GPOs).
  • Implement server virtualization by using Hyper-V.



All of the above apart from IPv6 are used in the academy so would greatly benefit me.

My question is: Do you think this is the best course for me to start with?

Thanks
