The course is designed for people with a general background in IT and/or Packaging. We take students with or without prior experience in App-V.

There are no hard pre-requisites to be able to take the class, however, the following are helpful:

  • Knowledge and experience with general Microsoft Server Administration.
  • Knowledge and experience with SQL Server Administration.
  • Experience with other "packaging" techniques helpful.
  • Experience with App-V Administration and Sequencing.
Remote students will be required to build your own VMs at your site prior to the start of the class:
  • Each student will require two Windows VMs.
  • Our pre-class prep kit will provide detailed written instructions, a video introduction to building the VMs, and installers for the tools needed.
  • Any type of hypervisor may be used, but the student must have access to create and revert to "snapshots".
  • You will need additional storage on a share for the application installers and created packages.
  • It is highly recommended that students have two monitors, microphone, video camera, and earphones.
