MCSA: Server 2012 Online Training

In this entry-level Microsoft Server 2012 training, Garth Schulte prepares learners to take the 70-410, 70-411, and 70-412 exam, which are the three exams required to earn the MCSA: Server 2012 certification.

In their move to role-based exams in 2019, Microsoft left the MCSA: Server 2012 exam untouched and with good reason. Their Server 2016 and Server 2019 products are popular, but Server 2012 is still running strong. Considering Server 2003 is still widely used, it’s a good chance you’ll run into Server 2012 at some point in your career — perhaps even 10 years from now.

Once you're done with this Server 2012 training, you'll know how to implement a Windows Server 2012 infrastructure in an enterprise environment, and learn to configure Hyper-V, install and administer Active Directory, create and manage Group Policy, and more.

By completing this 70-410, 70-411, and 70-412 training and earning the MCSA: Server 2012, systems administrators will be better prepared to get more senior systems administrator roles and be one step closer to systems engineer.

For anyone who leads a technology team that uses Microsoft products, this Server 2012 training can be used for 70-410, 70-411, and 70-412 exam prep, for on-boarding new systems administrators, or as part of a team training plan.
