Upgrading your Skills to Microsoft Server 2016

In this course, you will learn how to implement and configure new features and functionality in Windows Server 2016. This course is designed for IT professionals who want to upgrade their technical skills from Windows Server 2008 or Windows Server 2012 to Windows Server 2016.

This is not a product-upgrade course, detailing considerations for migrating and upgrading students’ specific environment to Windows Server 2016. Rather, this course presumes a high level of knowledge about previous Windows Server technologies and skills, as they pertain to Windows Server 2016.

This course incorporates material from the Official Microsoft Learning Product 20743: Upgrading Your Skills to Windows Server 2016 MCSA and can assist you in preparing for the 70-743: Upgrading Your Skills to MCSA: Windows Server 2016 exam.
