In this intermediate Microsoft skills training, Greg Shields prepares learners to administer Microsoft’s popular messaging and collaboration server, Exchange Server 2013.
We’re a few versions beyond Exchange Server 2013 now, but that doesn’t mean you won’t run into this mail server in the wild. Microsoft plans to support this software through 2020, so you should expect to see it running Outlook in organizations for a while.
Greg further presents a step-by-step approach in constructing and administering an Exchange 2013 environment, including Mailbox, Client Access Server, and Transport functions. Once you're done with this Microsoft training, you'll know how to design, implement, manage, and troubleshoot single-site and distributed Exchange 2013 organizations. You’ll also learn about topics of high-availability, troubleshooting, mobility, RBAC, and security in this series.
For anyone who manages system administrators, this Microsoft training can be used to onboard new system administrators, curated into individual or team training plans, or as a Microsoft reference resource.

Who Should Take Exchange Server 2013 Training?
This Exchange Server 2013 training is no longer mapped to an active certification exam, but it’s still considered administrator-level Microsoft training, which means it was designed for system administrators. This Exchange Server 2013 skills course is designed for new and experienced system administrators.
New or aspiring system administrators. If you’re a brand new system administrator, the idea of learning all about Microsoft’s mail and calendaring service from a few years ago may not be very exciting. But that should be a good indication of why you might want to take this training in Exchange Server 2013: sysadmins with unique mastery over the mail and calendaring service are rare and valuable. Especially since the widespread Exchange Server 2010 is recently no longer supported by Microsoft and companies will be migrating away from it.
Experienced system administrators. If you’re a system administrator with several years of experience, you can be forgiven if Microsoft Exchange Server was never an area of expertise or focus for you. But now that support has halted for Exchange Server 2010, more companies are migrating off of it. If that’s the case for you and your company, or if you just need to know more about Exchange Server 2013, this training is for you: you’ll master all elements of administering the mail service.
