In this intermediate Microsoft skills training, Chris Ward covers the Server 2012 objectives in the 70-414 exams, one of the exams required to earn the MCSE: Core Infrastructure certification.
It’s a major step to move from systems administrator to systems engineer, and this training maps to one of two exams that will help you do exactly that. This Microsoft training is all about knowing why you would use one Microsoft product over another product to accomplish a particular business goal. That’s the life of an MCSE. Knowing the services, and making decisions about which are the best fit for the job. With the right experience, systems engineers who complete this 70-414 training will be better suited to step into senior systems engineer and architect roles.
For anyone who leads an IT team, this Microsoft training can be used for 70-414 exam prep, onboarding new server administrators, individual or team training plans, or as a Microsoft reference resource.

Who Should Take 70-414 Server 2012 Training?
This 70-414 Server 2012 training is considered administrator-level Microsoft training, which means it was designed for server administrators. This Server 2012 skills course is designed for server administrators with three to five years of experience with systems infrastructure.
New or aspiring server administrators.
Deploying hypervisor replicas and updating virtualized environments probably isn’t something you’ll need to worry about dealing with on your first day as a brand new server administrator, or even something you’ll come across on a daily basis later on. But handling software-defined networks and virtualization broadly is an important skill set for a server administrator, and you’ll want to take this training to prepare yourself for the eventuality of working with them.
Experienced server administrators.
The ability to manage and maintain a highly available enterprise infrastructure that makes use of software-defined networks with or without Microsoft’s Virtual Machine Manager is an incredibly valuable skill for an experienced server administrator. If you haven’t had the need to worry about virtualization and hypervisors yet, or if you have and haven’t gotten the training, then look no further. This training prepares you for Server 2012’s use of virtual machines and networks.
