Implementing Skype for Business 2015 in your Organization

Microsoft’s newest version of their all-in-one communication and collaboration software is designed to promote videoconferencing between meeting rooms and separate locations, implement IM’s, collaborative chats, even provide telephony options; all at a lower price point than purchasing separate products for each communication solution.  Join our LRS Education Services training event to build core knowledge and skills that are required to plan, deploy, configure, and administer a Skype for Business 2015 environment.

The MS20334B – Core Solutions of Microsoft Skype for Business 2015 course provides students with knowledge on how to deploy a multi-site and highly available Skype for Business infrastructure that supports instant messaging, conferencing, Persistent Chat, archiving, and monitoring.  Students will also learn how to manage and maintain the infrastructure and how to troubleshoot issues that might arise. While the focus is primarily on an on-premise Skype for Business deployment, it does include information on how to integrate an on-premise deployment with Skype for Business Online and how to migrate from previous versions of Lync Server.

It is recommended that all attendees have existing knowledge in the following areas:

  • A minimum of two years of experience administering Windows Server 2012 or Windows Server 2008 R2.
  • A minimum of two years of experience working with AD DS and DNS.
  • Experience working with certificates, including public key infrastructure (PKI) certificates.
  • Experience working with the Windows PowerShell command-line interface.
  • An understanding of data networks and telecommunications standards and components.

LRS Education Services offers an opportunity for students to join in on one of our two class delivery methods:

  1. Instructor-Led Training (ILT) – On September 12-16, 2016 we will host a live class at our Bloomington, IL training facility. For remote students who are not able to join us in the classroom, we have a virtual connection option. This uses our online video and audio feeds to connect and interact with both the instructor as well as the in-class students. For a video on how our Virtual Training option works, click on the link.
  2. Microsoft On-Demand – Do you need more flexible training hours or dates than what a traditional ILT class will allow for? Microsoft is now offering expert training videos that teach the Microsoft Official Curriculum with access to live, Microsoft Official hands-on labs. The videos and labs are available 24/7 so you can train on YOUR schedule. Students will have 90 days to complete their training course and will be provided with our LRS Education Services extras: Students will have access to instructor support for questions on lecture and labs during class, free Microsoft Official digital courseware that won’t expire after the 90 day class period, and an invitation to join our Technology Community Hub hosted on Facebook where you can ask questions and have conversations with instructors and other community members.

All attending Microsoft Official Course* ILT students will have access to their labs and class recordings for 6 months after class.  Click HERE to find out more!
