The Managing Citrix XenDesktop 7 Solutions Early Release course provides students with the
skills required to effectively support a Citrix app and desktop virtualization solution in a
Windows Server 2012 environment. This early release course will enable organizations before the
product is in market via select Citrix Authorized Learning Centers (CALCs) and Citrix Certified
Instructors (CCIs). Subsequent versions of this course will be based on the final product code of
XenDesktop 7, and will be offered by additional CALCs and CCIs.
Upon completion of this early release course, students will learn how to successfully manage,
monitor, support and troubleshoot a XenDesktop 7 solution, which includes growing the
implementation to accommodate changes in the environment (adding new apps, new users, new desktops)
and troubleshooting common issues.
Who should enroll in this course?
This course is recommended for operators, including Administrators and Engineers, that need to
manage an existing XenDesktop 7 app and desktop solution. Students will have the skills to
successfully support a XenDesktop 7 solution that a majority of Citrix customers implement today.
