Automating Administration with PowerShell Training

This official Microsoft PowerShell course teaches attendees how to use PowerShell to administer and automate Windows servers. Students learn to identify and build the commands required to perform a specific task and build scripts to accomplish advanced tasks such as automating repetitive tasks and generating reports. 

This course provides prerequisite skills for supporting a broad range of Microsoft products, including Windows Server, Windows Client, Microsoft Azure, and Microsoft 365. We will not focus on any of those products, although Windows Server, the common platform, will be used in the examples.
