Mastering Technology 
Giving you the knowledge to make it work


Our Microsoft® Windows 2000 and Windows 2003 Training for IT Professionals takes you in-depth into the technical information you need to plan, design, and implement Microsoft® Windows 2000/03 in an enterprise network, including a comprehensive examination of Active Directory. This four-day workshop arms you with solutions from the trenches of Windows 2000/03 directory services, architecting and administration, server and client deployment, configuration, troubleshooting, and optimization. The Windows 2000/03 for IT Professionals workshop is the equivalent of four Microsoft courses that would cost more and take you three weeks to complete. 

This course combines skills training, careful analysis of critical concepts, comprehensive simulations of real-world scenarios, lively discussions and think-tank brainstorming with skilled IT professionals and industry experts. A complex, multi-system network, controlled by the instructor, replicates real-world IT configurations and common issues, allowing you to concentrate on applying your learning to overcome exactly the kinds of challenges you face in your environment. Students are immersed in the depths of the technology as the instructor uses case study and student questions to guide the course, unearthing best-practice recommendations designed to help you solve critical problems in your enterprise. Learning is more comprehensive and more effective, as your brain focuses on the content, on the challenges, and most importantly on the solutions. It's real-world knowledge you can put to work immediately.
