DIE Group Policy Masterclass aus der ETC Lighthouse Series

Very few other training courses tap deep into the well of Group Policy and MDM to really ensure that students can confidently implement this powerful technology. Not only will the concepts be taught in an understandable way, but they will be reinforced with demonstrations, as well as hands-on labs designed to empower students to take the skills out of the lab and put them into practice!

This material has been battle-tested in companies around the world. It has been gathered from hundreds of Active Directory and Group Policy administrators managing thousands of servers. And whenever a new development from Microsoft is on the way, details will be included in the seminar, making the seminar absolutely up-to-the-minute.

Because Group Policy touches every single server, desktop, and laptop, all administrators need to understand these very important theories and concepts! There are hundreds of real-world techniques, skills, and best practices taught in class which can save time and money for your organization.
