“What? Huh? Cheap? Training?”
Yes, I thought that would get your attention. Due to the great response for past deliveries of this sort of all-day live virtual classroom training, Symon Perriman and Phil Helsel will be delivering two more full-day courses on Microsoft Virtualization.
Here are the details (UPDATED - Additional event in February!):
“Wait.. it includes an exam voucher? So I can pay $99, take this class, and then I have a voucher to take the certification exam?”
That’s right. We’ll give you a voucher to use, and you will want to take the TS: Windows Server 2008 R2, Server Virtualization certification exam to take full advantage of what you’ve learned and become a “Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist (MCTS): Windows Server 2008 R2, Server Virtualization”.
See the Microsoft Certified Community Connection page for complete details.
And don’t forget that if you want to get a leg-up on this stuff, you can freely download and evaluate Windows Server 2008 R2 w/SP1 and SCVMM 2008 R2 SP1, and build a pretty solid training environment on one or two PCs.
How long is the exam voucher good for? (How long do I have after the class to take the exam)
Unfortunately I don't know the answer to that. Great question. I would presume it will be a fairly sufficient time - like through June of this year. Just long enough that you won't forget the content before you take the test. :)
Q: What is the timeframe of the offer?
A: This offer expires on May 31, 2012. All training sessions must be taken and the vouchers must be redeemed and exams taken by that date.
