Overview

Windows 7 is dubbed as Microsoft's most compelling operating system release in over a decade. Windows 7 offers substantial new capabilities in security, performance, reliability, and manageability. It is also the first operating system released with the .NET Framework 3.0 in mind, and the first client operating system to include the .NET Framework 3.0 as a part of its own installation.

Our 5 day accelerated MCTS Windows 7 - MCP Windows Server 2003 Firebrand Training provides information technology professionals with the knowledge and skills necessary to install, configure, support, and troubleshoot Microsoft Windows 2003 based networks with a focus on the latest 7 operating system. This is an accelerated, residential, fully-immersed course, designed for IT professionals that require effective, real-world skill-building and timely certification. You will live, learn, and test on-site.

Our MCTS Windows 7 - MCP Windows Server 2003 Program

  • Allows you to achieve your certifications in a fraction of the time of 'traditional training' while delivering industry-leading exam passing percentages
  • Helps students grasp complex technical concepts more easily by identifying and catering to individual student learning styles through a mixed visual, auditory and kinaesthetic-tactual delivery system
  • Enhances retention by employing accelerated learning techniques focused on committing information to long-term memory

Seven reasons why you should sit your Windows Server course with Firebrand Training

  1. You'll be Windows Server certified in just 5 days. With us, you’ll be Windows Server trained in record time
  2. Our Windows Server course is all-inclusive. A one-off fee covers all course materials, exams, accommodation and meals. No hidden extras
  3. Pass Windows Server first time or train again for free. This is our guarantee. We’re confident you’ll pass your course first time. But if not, come back within a year and only pay for accommodation, exams and incidental costs
  4. You’ll learn more Windows Server. A day with a traditional training provider generally runs from 9am – 5pm, with a nice long break for lunch. With Firebrand Training you’ll get at least 12 hours/day quality learning time, with your instructor

  7. You'll do more than study Windows Server courseware. We use practical exercises to make sure you can apply your new knowledge to the work environment. Our instructors use demonstrations and real-world experience to keep the day interesting and engaging

Benefits

For IT managers, certification is particularly important because it allows them to more easily identify the skills that an individual possesses. When a company has employees that possess certain skills, it can garner a competitive advantage when seeking to attract customers. Certification can also contribute to increased productivity, because studies have shown that certified individuals are generally quicker to implement and design new technologies. And of course by knowing that their employees are certified, IT managers can feel more confident about their ability to implement and support a network infrastructure.

Looking at security in particular, recent surveys from CompTIA and others show that human error, rather than technical malfunction, is the most significant cause of IT security breaches in both the public and private sectors. When asked, an overwhelming majority of companies agree that employee training and certification programs improve network security and help protect against cyber threats. In fact, most companies identify a lack of IT security knowledge and training, or failure to follow security procedures, as the root causes of many of their security issues.

Also, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, in its National Strategy to Secure Cyberspace, has said that the two major barriers to improving cyber-security are a lack of familiarity, knowledge and understanding of security issues, and an inability to find sufficient numbers of adequately trained or appropriately certified personnel to create and manage secure systems. So there are real benefits in organizations ensuring that their IT professionals have the right skills to reduce the effects of human error on information security.

Demonstrate Value to Enterprise Security. The CompTIA Security+ Certification provides a way for individuals to highlight their focus on security in the enterprise and demonstrate their ability to create a secure computing environment.

Individuals

  • Overwhelmingly, individuals with Microsoft certifications have an advanced level of knowledge, expertise and skill, and command more professional credibility
  • The MCTS/MCP is seen as a particularly elite indication of an engineer's prowess and skill level, and these professionals are highly sought by employers
  • Individual students may receive college credits to utilize tuition reimbursement programs for their IT training or to complete college coursework

Companies

  • Reduce the costs of maintaining your workstations and personal computers, and increase the reliability of your network with Active Directory and with the information technology (IT) professionals to back it up
  • Make a roll out of Windows 2003 Server smooth and successful
  • Customers see great value in certification - they want the people on their engagement to have the best skills, and certification provides that proof point
  • Significantly improved Microsoft security throughout the software but particularly in the Web Server component of Windows Server, IIS; Scalable management tools that improve on the legacy of Windows 2000 Server: enhanced Active Directory features, and new tools such as the Group Policy Management Console
  • Significant increases in server performance. In internal tests, Windows Server 2003 shows dramatic performance gains over previous versions of Windows server operating systems. For example, file and Web server performance is two times faster than Windows NT Server 4.0
  • While your organization's performance gains may vary because of unique network and computer settings, Microsoft is confident that the improved performance of Windows Server 2003 will help you deliver faster service for your network solutions

Human Resources

  • Employer-funded training and certification programs are a key to retaining skilled IT staff. Career development and advancement opportunities are shown to significantly reduce rates of employee turnover
  • Certification Training Programs provide benchmarks for hiring and promotion decisions by accurately assessing technical skills
  • For-certification training programs maximize educational investments through immediate validation of skills

Microsoft certification affords special membership benefits

  • Technical information, product information and exclusive discounts on products and services through a secured section of the Microsoft website
  • Microsoft logos and certificate for your personal promotion to clients or potential employers
  • Invitations to Microsoft conferences and other educational opportunities
  • Access to the secure Microsoft Certified Professional Magazine Online website

Other accelerated training providers rely heavily on lecture and independent self-testing and study.

Effective technical instruction must be highly varied and interactive to keep attention levels high, promote camaraderie and teamwork between the students and instructor, and solidify knowledge through hands-on learning.

Firebrand Training provides instruction to meet every learning need:

  • Intensive group instruction
  • One-on-one instruction attention
  • Hands-on labs
  • Lab partner and group exercises
  • Question and answer drills

"Quality. Enjoyment. Success. Firebrand's refined formula for delivering expert instruction in an immersed environment over a short period of time blew me away. They are experts at what they do: Making us experts at what we do! With quality instruction from the instructor, I did the 5 day MCTS/MCP course. You need to be prepared for long hours and hard work, yet with limited prior knowledge I have learnt so much within a week. It is an experience I will not forget and I thoroughly enjoyed all of it. The icing on the cake is that I got to go home with two new IT certifications! Result! "
