Students participate in 6 weeks of virtual (Zoom-based) classroom instruction and guided lab work, online study, testing, and career transition workshops.
The curriculum prepares students for the MD-100 and MD-101 exams focused on Windows Client and Managing Modern Desktops. These exams, together, lead to the Microsoft 365: Modern Desktop Administrator Associate. The MD-100 tests one’s ability to deploy Windows, manage devices and data, configure connectivity, and maintain Windows 10 on devices. The MD-101 tests one’s ability to deploy, configure, secure, manage, and monitor devices and client applications in a modern, cloud-based enterprise environment. The curriculum for both units of this course is based on the Exam Preparation guide from Pearson Education and Microsoft Press. The material is supplemented with online, on-demand study materials and virtual labs. Students will utilize the Windows-10 enabled desktops during class and have access to e-learning materials for study beyond class.
During their training, students continue to enhance skills in career transition workshops. These sessions prepare students to compete in theIT labor market by providing them with guidance in resume construction, helping them to sharpen their interviewing skills and providing information regarding networking through social media.
