Overview

Support your in-class learning with 3 months access to the lab environments used throughout the course.

These self paced labs for the training course 20697-1: Installing and Configuring Windows 10 assist students in revising the knowledge and skills required to install and configure Windows 10 desktops and devices in a Windows Server domain corporate environment. These skills include learning how to install and customize Windows 10 operating systems and apps, and configure local and remote network connectivity and storage.

Audience

The networks with which these professionals typically work are configured as AD DS domain-based environments with managed access to the Internet and cloud services.

Students who seek certification in exam 70-698: Installing and Configuring Windows 10 also will benefit from this course. In addition, this course is intended to provide skills for Enterprise Desktop/Device Support Technicians (EDSTs) who work in small to medium-sized organizations, and who provide Tier 1 or Tier 2 support to users running Windows 10 desktops and devices within a Windows domain environment.

Please note: Delegates who have previous attended the M206971 'Implementing and Managing Windows 10' and M206972 'Deploying and Managing Windows 10 Using Enterprise Services' courses will find that there is some duplication of subject matter within this course. Additionally whilst Microsoft recommend this course as preparatory for the 70-698 exam (as referenced above) we would suggest that attendance of the M206971 'Implementing and Managing Windows 10' and M206972 'Deploying and Managing Windows 10 Using Enterprise Services' courses would also provide preparation towards both exams within the Windows 10 MCSA (exam 70-697 and exam 70-698).
