 Beginning next Thursday, August 16, 2012, DaNPA will begin hosting Windows Server 2012 MCSA (Microsoft Certified Solutions Associate) training.  According to Microsoft, “The Microsoft Certified Solutions Associate (MCSA): Windows Server 2012 certification shows that you have the primary set of Windows Server skills that are relevant across multiple solution areas in a business environment.”  To become a MCSA, you have to pass three tests.  We plan to work on the first test during the months of August, September, October and November.  After that, we will work on the second test in the Spring of 2013 and the final test during the Summer of 2013.  Then … we should have several MCSAs in our User Groups!

Keith Mayer, Microsoft IT Pro Evangelist, will be leading the training.  Keith is planning to divide each set of monthly study materials into weekly Knowledge Quests that tie to specific certification exam topics to ensure coverage for the first Windows Server 2012 Exam on Installing and Configuring.  Each weekly Knowledge Quest will require participants to allocate up to 4-hours per week from their schedules to complete on their own time.

To kick off the training, please go to Windows Server 2012 “Early Experts” Apprentice Knowledge Quest – http://blogs.technet.com/b/keithmayer/p/trainws12fl.aspx and follow the steps.

  1. Take the Windows Server 2012 First Look Course
  2. Download Windows Server 2012 Installation Bits
  3. Download the “Introducing Windows Server 2012” eBook
  4. And … Get your “Early Experts” Apprentice Certificate!

The training will take place at the DaNPA meeting room, Sinclair Learning Center, 1900 Founders Drive, Kettering, Ohio 45420 from 6PM – 9PM.  Remember, the doors are locked at 6:00 PM; however, those of you who attended the recent DaNPA meeting have the “secret code” to unlock the doors.  Those of you who do not have the code, please call 937-252-9787 and someone will come open the door.

Please be prompt and arrive early so you do not disturb everyone else!  The presentations will begin at 6:30 PM.

Keith will be doing the presentations using Linc:  Monthly recurring meeting week (Aug – Mar)
