All Windows Server 2008 FAQs: Cost, Training, Value
You should take this Windows Server 2008 training so that you can confidently configure the Active Directory settings and manage DNS in Server 2008. Those skills are vanishing from the world. So if your job depends on using Windows Server 2008, make sure you learn how to manage it.
No, although this course used to help learners prepare for the MCTS, MCITP: Enterprise Administrator, MCITP: Server Administrator, and MCSA: Windows Server 2008, they're all retired now. Microsoft retired all of those certifications and no longer supports certifications related only to Server 2008.
Depending on your job and what technology you'll work with in the future, there aren't a ton of certifications waiting for you after this course. Windows Server Hybrid Administrator Associate and Azure Virtual Desktop Specialty are valid, but you should only consider those if you'll be working with Azure.
The most likely candidates for this course are people working in small IT teams at companies who haven't updated their hardware and software. If you're only trained on the most modern technologies, Server 2008 can be very hard to figure out – with this training, you'll be backward-compatible.
