The Citrix NetScaler 10.5 for App and Desktop Solutions course provides the concepts and training to install and configure a Citrix NetScaler load balancer and gateway in a virtualization environment such as Citrix XenDesktop/XenApp 7.x. Learners are strongly encouraged to build a lab environment to practice the NetScaler techniques learned in this course. This course is based on the Citrix NetScaler 10.5 product, and the fundamental concepts taught in these Nuggets are common to earlier NetScaler versions as well.

Note: The English version of the exam associated with this course will be discontinued on September 18, 2017 by Citrix. Those interested in taking the CCA - N exam should take it prior to this date.
