General Information
about Windows Desktop Infrastructure training

Microsoft Windows is the software that powers over a billion computers worldwide, and with large companies having many thousands of Windows machines, it takes a great deal of planning and support to deploy and maintain those systems.

A Microsoft Windows MCSE certification shows that the skills needed to manage Windows deployment and support across the enterprise have been learned and tested, giving confidence to employees and employers alike.

We deliver official Microsoft Windows courses that map directly to the examinations required for certification, making progress through any chosen career path both simple and effective.
