The MCSE Data Platform certification boot camp is a 6 day comprehensive deep dive into the SQL Server covering topics such as implementing, developing and designing. This instructor led face to face training camp will teach you the skills needed to support a Data Platform environment.

This MCSE Data Platform boot camp incorporates Microsoft Courses -

20464 Developing Microsoft SQL Server Databases
20465 Designing Database Solutions for Microsoft SQL Server

While attending this training program - you take two exams to test and certify for the Microsoft Certified Solutions Expert: MCSE Data Platform official certification. If your goal is to learn SQL Server and pass the certification exam - you've found the right place. This course is a hybrid of actual hands on learning combined with focused materials mapped to exam objectives.

We have developed a comprehensive training format which focuses on learning beyond the core content accessible to any Microsoft training provider. Our program incorporates interactive demonstrations with explanations which go beyond the content of the book. Additional content, videos, labs & demonstrations are provided to expand on advanced topics - providing additional insight and perspective.

As a Microsoft Certified Partner with Gold Learning Competency - we adhere to the strict guidelines, standards and requirements to use Microsoft's exclusive curriculum. Our standards go beyond the "minimum requirements" set forth by Microsoft.

We leverage our partnership benefits of courseware customization to build end to end technology solutions. The idea is for students to leave with practical skills which can be implemented immediately when leave class.

Our training program offers solutions before the course by providing you with pre-study materials / pre-class remote lab access, during the course with industry leading instructors and after the course with continued access to the lab environment.

Additionally, we limit our class sizes to 12 students with an average class size of 8.  The instructor to student ratio is an important aspect of the learning environment and strict self-imposed rule of our organization.

CAMPUS - Certification Camps invested $150,000 into a complete training center construction build out. Larger classrooms, no sound transference between training rooms, new desk / executive leather chairs & great common areas.

CLASSROOM SERVERS - Students work on a dedicated Dell 8500 / 8700 with an Intel i7 (4th generation), minimum of 16GB memory (Most with 32 GB) and most with 512GB SSD drives.

CAMPUS INTERNET - The campus is connected with a 300Mbs Verizon Fios Business Connection which provides complete internet (including VPN) access for students.

COMMON AREA - Unlike any training facility ever - break room with Mame Arcade, high end "kitchen" with snacks, drinks (Starbucks Coffee, 100% juices, sodas, etc) and breathtaking terrace.

LODGING - We use the Marriott Fairfield Inn & Suites Lakewood Ranch. This "upgraded" hotel offers extremely comfortable beds, great breakfast and very fast (Verizon) internet access.

NEAR BY AMENITIES - Many shops, restaurants and grocery options are available within walking distance. Additionally - the hotel provided scheduled shuttle services. Restaurants like Bone Fish Grill, Ruby Tuesday's, Five Guys, Chipotle, Quiznos, Chili's and over 20 additional choices in the immediate area. All of these options are offered in a pedestrian walking village.
