This five-day course provides students with the knowledge and skills to plan and administer a Microsoft SharePoint 2016 environment. Students will learn how to deploy, administer, and troubleshoot their SharePoint environment. This course also provides guidelines, best practices, and considerations that help students optimize their SharePoint deployment. This is the first in a sequence of two courses for IT professionals and is aligned with the SharePoint 2016 IT Pro certification.


The course is targeted at experienced IT professionals who are interested in learning how to install, configure, deploy, and manage SharePoint 2016 installations either in a data center or in the cloud. Students typically have more than one year of hands-on experience* with planning and maintaining SharePoint, and two years’ experience with other core technologies on which SharePoint depends, including Windows Server 2012 R2 or later, Internet Information Services (IIS), Microsoft SQL Server 2014 or later, Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS), and networking infrastructure services.
The minimally qualified candidate typically:
• Is an IT professional who plans, implements, and maintains a multi-server deployment of SharePoint 2016?
• Has a working knowledge of, and preferably hands-on experience with SharePoint Online?
• Has broad familiarity with SharePoint workloads.
• Has experience with business continuity management, including data backup, restoration, and high availability.
• Has experience with authentication and security technologies.
• Has experience with Windows PowerShell.


Before attending this course, students must have knowledge of:
• Software management in a Windows Server 2012 or Windows Server 2012 R2 enterprise server environment.
• Deploying and managing applications natively, virtually, and in the cloud.
• Administering IIS.
• Configuring AD DS for use in authentication, authorization, and as a user store.
• Managing an application remotely by using Windows PowerShell 4.0.
• Managing databases and server roles in SQL Server.
• Connecting applications to SQL Server.
• Implementing claims-based security.
• Using Microsoft Hyper-V virtual machines.
An ideal candidate for this course must have at least one year of experience with deploying and administering multiple SharePoint 2013 farms across a large enterprise. Because many customers have not upgraded from SharePoint 2010, a candidate can also have at least two years of experience with SharePoint 2010. However, they also must understand the differences between SharePoint 2010 and SharePoint 2013, particularly in terms of hybridization.
