Overview

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.

Thinking about Onsite?

If you need training for 3 or more people, you should ask us about onsite training. Putting aside the obvious location benefit, content can be customised to better meet your business objectives and more can be covered than in a public classroom. It's a cost effective option.

Submit an enquiry from any page on this site, and let us know you are interested in the requirements box, or simply mention it when we contact you.
