This course will provide you with the knowledge and skills to configure and manage a Microsoft SharePoint Server environment. This course will teach you how to configure SharePoint Server, as well as provide guidelines, best practices, and considerations that will help you optimize your SharePoint server deployment.

An ideal candidate will have at least one year of experience with deploying and administering multiple SharePoint 2010 farms across a large enterprise. Because many customers skipped upgrading from SharePoint 2007, a candidate can also have at least 2 years of experience with SharePoint 2007 and knowledge of the differences between 2007 and 2010, particularly the Service Application model. A candidate can demonstrate the following skills:
  • Software management in a Windows 2008 R2 enterprise server or Windows Server 2012 environment.
