Windows 10 MD-101 Completes This Week!


You heard it here first! I was striving to complete all of the MD-101 training for Windows 10 at CBT Nuggets in the month of June 2019, and that is happening!

There are 5 major sections of the course. Once all five are live on the site – we will gather them together for you in the correct order in a nice MD-101 playlist.

Microsoft Windows 10: Deploy and Update

Microsoft Windows 10: Manage and Protect

Microsoft Windows 10: Policies and Profiles

Microsoft Windows 10: Manage Apps and Data

Microsoft Windows 10: Advanced Management Topics

I realize that many of you want to get started right away – so do not delay. In fact, later today – part 3 from the list above will be live on the site!

Remember, this training is about much more than Windows 10 and includes:

  • SCCM
  • Azure
  • Azure AD
  • Intune

And a bunch of other stuff I cannot recall as I type this! 🙂
