Administering System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) is an in-depth training program designed to provide IT professionals with the knowledge and skills required to effectively deploy, manage, and maintain SCCM in enterprise environments. Participants will learn how to utilize SCCM’s features and capabilities to streamline software and patch deployment, manage client devices, and ensure compliance and security within the organization.
To make the most of this course, participants should have a strong understanding of networking concepts, Windows Server administration, and basic knowledge of Active Directory. Familiarity with Microsoft technologies and basic knowledge of scripting (PowerShell) will be beneficial. Prior experience with system administration and working with SCCM in a lab or test environment is recommended.
The course will be delivered through a combination of instructor-led lectures, practical demonstrations, hands-on labs, and group discussions. Participants will have access to a dedicated SCCM environment for hands-on practice, allowing them to apply the concepts learned in real-world scenarios. The course will be led by certified instructors with extensive experience in SCCM administration, ensuring a high-quality learning experience.
