Hi profile avatar ajay kaushik

We have some CSV files that we provide on other courses for managing and administering Active Directory. For this fundamentals course, we don’t provide one. Are you looking for something specific?

Hi profile avatar BOPPARAJU Shiva Keshav

Unfortunately for completing this Fundamentals course, there’s no certificate. We only award a certificate for completing the Windows Admin Bootcamp which is comprised of most of the courses here in Server Academy. You can find more information on your Dashboard > My STuff > Certificates.

Here’s a link to it:

Hi! I’m looking for a lesson where I can go through steps needed to join a workstation to an existing domain, preferably with an IT lab included. I have not found this in any of the courses. Am I missing something? Regards, Balazs

Did the AD fundamentals. Great lecturer and labs for practice. £168 upfront for the year to continue. Way over-priced. I guess monthly pay-as-you-go options for people who can’t afford the year wouldn’t work for you eh.

Hi profile avatar Paul Shepherd

Glad that you enjoyed the course. You can choose the monthly option of $28.00 and once you are done learning, then you can cancel at your convenience, any time.
