This Server 2012 training is considered professional-level Microsoft training, which means it was designed for systems administrators. This 70-413 and 70-414 course will validate the extensive experience most systems administrators have with Microsoft infrastructure.
New systems administrators. If you’re new to systems administration, you won’t be eligible for the MCSE: Core Infrastructure certification — but that doesn’t mean you can’t take these courses. Maybe you’re already familiar with Microsoft Server 2012 and you want to move on to more advanced topics. Whatever the reason, this training isn’t closed to systems administrators, but it will benefit most the sysadmins who are already familiar, experienced, and — preferably — certified in Windows Server 2012.
Experienced systems administrators. MCSE: Core Infrastructure is Microsoft’s expert-level certification for data center management, and experienced systems administrators with their eyes on higher positions should plan to earn theirs. If you’re experienced with Server 2016, there are different certifications and exams to validate that and earn the same certificate, but this training is focused on Server 2012. If you’re experienced with Windows Server 2012 and have your MCSA, with this training you’re one exam away from your MCSE in Core Infrastructure — and a lot more opportunities for advancement.
