"The excellent facilities and close proximity to the accommodation, around the round the clock access to the training center make it the ideal learning environment. Polite, friendly, and very helpful staff across the board, good free wireless access, fantastic food, and most importantly I had an incredibly knowledgeable and supportive trainer."
Jeff Williams, CVC Capital Partners. - Microsoft MCSE: SharePoint 2013 (6 days) (15/2/2016 to 20/2/2016)

"My experience at Firebrand Training has been excellent throughout. The hospitality of the Willows Centre staff and the accommodation was excellent. This was my first Microsoft course, and it was the best course I have attended to date. The instructor was excellent and really knows the subject (and other related subjects like PowerShell etc). The course content was thorough and in a suitable format to learn both for the exam and for gaining knowledge to use in the day job, I would recommend to anyone who is looking for more knowledge on SharePoint or who would like to gain the certification. "
J.C. - Microsoft MCSE: SharePoint 2013 (6 days) (15/2/2016 to 20/2/2016)

Anonymous - Microsoft MCSE: SharePoint 2013 (6 days) (24/11/2014 to 29/11/2014)

"If you don't want to consider your future, train anywhere else, Firebrand is second to none."
J.D. - Microsoft MCSE: SharePoint 2013 (6 days) (24/11/2014 to 29/11/2014)

"As an experienced SharePoint consultant, I wanted to attend the course to fill a few knowledge gaps and to get certified, and I have managed to achieve both with the minimum investment of time. The instructor was very knowledgeable in his subject area, and the accommodation and food was excellent. Long days, hard work; but ultimately a successful outcome. I would recommend Firebrand training to anyone that needs to get certified or up their skills, but cant afford to spend weeks out of the office doing slower-paced courses."

"Having studied for MCSA Server 2012 earlier in the year, I knew exactly what the course would be like. Long hours, a lot of classroom work, after hours study and preparation. Theres a reason why IT qualifications are highly respected in the world! They arent easy and gaining a certification puts you head and shoulders above people who dont do certifications. This was helped by having an excellent instructor that knows the subject inside out, 24/7 access the classroom, just a stones throw from your accommodation and access to all of the resources needed to fully understand the subject and get to grips with it provides you with everything needed to obtain your certification.

Core Solutions of Microsoft SharePoint Server 2013

Module 1: Introducing SharePoint Server 2013

Microsoft SharePoint Server 2013 is a document storage and collaboration platform that offers many benefits to Organisations. SharePoint deployments may take many different forms in scope, where a deployment may be focused on only delivering one feature, such as enterprise search, or many features, such as document management, business intelligence, web content management, and workflows. Deployments can also differ greatly in size, with small deployments of a single server up to large deployments with farms of 15 or more servers.

In this module, you'll learn about the core features of SharePoint 2013, the new features in this version, and what has been removed. you'll also learn about the basic structural elements of a farm deployment and how they fit together. Finally you'll learn about the different deployment options available to SharePoint 2013.

Module 2: Designing an Information Architecture

Information architecture (IA) defines the structures by which an Organisation catalogs information. Designing an IA requires a detailed understanding of the information held in an Organisation and its usage, context, volatility, and governance. A good IA rationalises the creation and storage of content and streamlines its surfacing and use.

IA design should be platform-neutral, but it must also be driven by the functionality of its environment. Microsoft SharePoint Server 2013 provides a rich and functional platform for the development and implementation of efficient and effective IA structures. The integral use of metadata throughout SharePoint 2013 means that an IA designer has a range of storage, navigation, and retrieval options to maximize usability in a well-structured IA.

In this module, you'll learn about the core elements of IA design and the facilities and devices available in SharePoint 2013 to deploy an effective information management solution.

Module 4: Designing a Physical Architecture

When you design a Microsoft SharePoint Server 2013 deployment, you must carefully consider the hardware and farm topology requirements. Your choices of server hardware and the number of servers that you specify for the farm can have a significant impact on how the farm meets user requirements, how users perceive the SharePoint solution, and how long before the farm requires additional hardware.

This module describes the factors that you should consider when you design the physical architecture of a SharePoint 2013 deployment. The physical architecture refers to the server design, farm topology, and supporting elements—such as network infrastructure—for your deployment. This physical architecture underpins the operations of your SharePoint 2013 environment, so it is essential that your physical design fully meets the operational requirements.

Module 9: Configuring Authentication for SharePoint 2013

Authentication is the process by which you establish the identity of users and computers. authorisation controls access to resources by assigning permissions to users and computers. To provide authorisation to consumers of Microsoft SharePoint content and services, whether they are end users, server platforms, or SharePoint apps, you first need to verify that they are who they claim to be.

Module 11: Managing Taxonomy

In order to organise information and make that information easier to find and work with, you can label or categorise information. With files and items in Microsoft SharePoint, you can apply metadata, which could be a category, a classification, or a tag, in order to organise your content and make it easier to work with.

In most Organisations, the most effective way to implement metadata is through a defined taxonomy that you have standardised through stakeholder input. This enables users to select metadata terms from a predefined list, which provides standard results.

Microsoft SharePoint Server 2013 can further enhance the application of metadata by using content types. Organisations can use content types to standardise specific types of files, documents, or list items and include metadata requirements, document templates, retention settings, and workflow directly.

Module 2: Designing Business Continuity Management Strategies

This module examines high availability and disaster recovery in SharePoint 2013. When designing high availability and disaster recovery strategies for a SharePoint farm, it's important to understand the different approaches required by each logical tier in the farm. High availability for the database tier requires understanding of how SQL Server provides high availability and the associated requirements. High availability for the application tier can be straightforward for some service applications, while other applications, such as Search, require additional planning and configuration for high availability. The web front end tier will also require additional planning and configuration for high availability, and architects should consider the new SharePoint 2013 request management feature. SharePoint farm disaster recovery has always required considerable planning and understanding of the necessary components and backup tools available. In this regard SharePoint 2013 is no different, and farm administrators should create a disaster recovery plan that states how content and configurations are backed up, how data can be restored, and what backup schedules are required.

  • Design Database Topologies for High Availability and Disaster Recovery

Module 3: Planning and Implementing a Service Application Architecture

Service applications were introduced in SharePoint 2010, replacing the Shared Service Provider architecture of Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007. Service applications provide a flexible design for delivering services, such as managed metadata or PerformancePoint, to users who need them. There are several deployment topologies available to you when you plan your service application implementation. These range from a simple, single-farm, single-instance service application model to more complex, cross-farm, multiple-instance designs. What remains most important is that you create a design that matches the needs of your organisation's users in terms of performance, functionality, and security.

This module reviews the service application architecture, how to map business requirements to design, and the options for enterprise scale, federated service application architectures.

Module 7: Planning and Configuring Business intelligence

Business Intelligence (BI) continues to be an important area for large enterprise organisations. The key to successful BI is the ability to integrate the components that deliver the right information, to the right people, at the right time. Microsoft SharePoint Server 2013 Enterprise Edition provides a range of integrated solutions that enable both users and administrators across an organisation to develop BI solutions to fit their business requirements. These BI tools extend beyond SharePoint to provide consistent information management from personal data analysis environments, which use Microsoft Excel, through to departmental or organisational data repositories, which use SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) and SQL Server Analysis Services (SSAS).

In this module you'll see how SharePoint 2013 can deliver BI solutions for your business.

In this module, you'll examine the configuration options in SharePoint Search that enable you to provide greater search result effectiveness by fine-tuning the service in various ways. The introduction of new functionality, such as result types and the increased move towards search-driven navigation mean that the role of the Search administrator has become even more important for business success. Search now enables you to delegate more of this management to site collection administrator and site owner levels, improving Search flexibility without increasing the administrative burden on a few Search service application administrators.

This module also examines Search analytics and reporting. To help you in your management of a Search environment, SharePoint 2013 now incorporates Search analytics and reporting into the Search service, rather than in a separate service application, as was the case in SharePoint Server 2010. The reports available will help you to monitor the service and optimise its configuration.

Module 11: Managing Solutions in SharePoint Server 2013

As a SharePoint administrator, it is important to understand the features that are available in Microsoft SharePoint Server 2013. However, there are often specific functional requirements that may be part of SharePoint’s feature set but are not included in certain site templates. There may also be sites that require repeatable Customisation of lists or libraries, or custom code deployments that are necessary to add capabilities that are not available out-of-the-box. Developers use features and solutions to add and control these functionality requirements. Administrators, on the other hand, must understand how features and solutions are deployed and managed in order to meet user needs in a SharePoint farm.

  • Manage how apps are used within a SharePoint 2013 deployment

Module 13: Developing a Governance Plan

Governance as it relates to SharePoint can be described as a way of controlling a SharePoint environment through the application of people, policies, and processes. Governance is necessary for all IT systems as a whole, and in particular for SharePoint deployments, which often introduce significant change in business processes, available functionality, and day-to-day working practices.

It is important to understand that governance must reflect the needs of the organisation and how it should best use SharePoint. Therefore, the IT department cannot be the only body governing SharePoint; input must come from corporate sponsorship across the organisation. The IT department must still act as the technical authority for SharePoint; however, this is just a single part of how SharePoint governance must be brought together from different parts of the organisation.

Module 14: Upgrading and Migrating to SharePoint Server 2013

Upgrading your Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 farm(s) to SharePoint 2013 is a major undertaking, so it is important that you carefully plan the upgrade activities. You need to ensure that your upgrade path—moving from version to version—is supported, that you have reviewed the business impact of your upgrade, and that you test your upgrade strategy to ensure business continuity. As with all such activities, preparation is crucial.

In contrast with earlier version of SharePoint, SharePoint 2013 supports only database-attach upgrades for content, but it now supports upgrades for some of the databases associated with service applications. You need to plan for these and ensure that you are prepared for any troubleshooting that may be required.

Another change in SharePoint 2013 is the approach to upgrading site collections. These are upgraded separately from the data and service applications. You can also delegate the upgrade tasks to site collection administrators.

  • Prepare the Upgrade or Migration Environment
