Overview

Learn how to design, implement and maintain a Windows Server 2012 desktop infrastructure - in a virtualised environment. This course is 40% faster than traditional training.

Gaining the MCSE: Desktop Infrastructure certification proves that you can plan, configure, and implement Windows Server 2012 desktop services, such as:

  • Desktop imaging and deployment
  • Application / desktop virtualisation
  • RDP access and infrastructure

Seven reasons why you should sit your course with Firebrand Training

  1. Two options of training. Choose between residential classroom-based, or online MCSE Desktop Infrastructure courses
  2. You'll be MCSE Desktop Infrastructure certified in just 6 days. With us, you’ll be MCSE Desktop Infrastructure trained in record time
  3. Our MCSE Desktop Infrastructure course is all-inclusive. A one-off fee covers all course materials, exams, accommodation and meals. No hidden extras
  4. Pass MCSE Desktop Infrastructure 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

"Course was very good, I liked the analogies given to explain complex networking areas it really helped. The instructor was very good at bringing information to a level everyone could understand and then further on that. "
Ewan jamieson, Mr. (17/2/2020 (Monday) to 22/2/2020 (Saturday))

"Knowledgeable, well spoken and relatable instructor. The instructor explained difficult concepts clearly and provided good examples to help us understand the material. He also discussed real-world examples to help solidify how the concepts are applied in the field. There were a few technical issues with the remote learning and remote labs, but overall a great experience, especially so when considering the current situation with COVID-19."
JE, Mitchells & Butlers. (4/5/2020 (Monday) to 7/5/2020 (Thursday))

"I would highly recommend taking up a course with Firebrand because the way the course is delivered is very helpful and useful for someone who either has no knowledge or some knowledge. The instructors do everything they can to ensure everyone is learning and is always on hand to help anyone who is struggling with anything. Everyone on the course is also very helpful and in the same position as they want to learn to. So there is not just the instructor but the class as a whole to assist. The facility is very nice and I will definitely be coming back for any future courses I attend. "
