Intended audience 

Our SCOM Administrator Training covers subjects that are essential to those who administer System Center Operations Manager of all versions. To get the most value out of our training, participants are expected to have prior experience with recent versions of Microsoft Windows Server. Basic understanding of Microsoft System Center products, Active Directory, SQL, PowerShell, and networking services is considered useful.

For our certification path, the SCOM Operator certification is a prerequisite for passing the SCOM Administrator certification. For in-house trainings these two can be combined into one. For more information regarding our TopQore SCOM Certification Path and possibilities, please visit our overview page.

Very consistent, clear and fast!
The lab had no errors in the instructions or the environment!
And the test was fun! Big thank you to Bob and his TopQore Crew!

I rate this Training 10 out of 10, would do it again!

Practical information

This training can be given worldwide, in English and Dutch. This training is mostly given remotely through Microsoft Teams. You can choose to invite us to your office or request a location that is convenient for you. We will normally present these more publicly with attendees from different companies. In that case we will use a small lab environment to demo things, instead of your own environment. For in-house trainings, we can use your SCOM environment to demo a number of things and you can practice in a live environment (for example Reporting).

The training will take 3 whole days.

After completing this training and passing the final Exam, participants receive a TopQore SCOM Administrator Certification through a special badge as shown above. The TopQore Certified SCOM Operator is a prerequisite to the SCOM Administrator badge.
