Powershell Training


This Windows PowerShell training course serves as a broad reference library of all the Microsoft's dynamic programming language and interactive command line shell can do. This course is a powerful reference for PowerShell versions 2, 3, and 4, and clearly explains everything an administrator might want to do with the shell.

Start from absolute zero and learn PowerShell as it was meant to be used. Advance into scripting and “toolmaking,” learning to make command-line and graphical tools from scratch. Move into advanced, real-world, field-proven topics such as reporting, trend analysis, and more. Learn super-advanced features like workflow and Desired State Configuration. Or find topics that go beyond the shell, such as using Component Object Model and .NET Framework classes in the shell.

It’s one course, with everything the shell touches. Encompassing more than 30 hours of instruction, combined with self-paced, hands-on labs (and video lab reviews), this Microsoft PowerShell training is the ultimate course for learning Windows PowerShell.
