This Automating Administration with Windows PowerShell Training course provides students with the fundamental knowledge and skills to use PowerShell for administering and automating administration of Windows servers.

This course provides prerequisite skills supporting a broad range of Microsoft products, including Windows Server, Windows Client, Microsoft Azure, and Microsoft 365.
