Microsoft Windows XP Professional:
The purpose of this course is to address the implementation and desktop support needs of customers that are planning to deploy and support Microsoft® Windows® XP Professional in a variety of stand-alone and network operating system environments. It provides in-depth, hands-on training for Information Technology (IT) professionals responsible for the planning, implementation, management, and support of Windows XP Professional. Microsoft Windows XP is the replacement for Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows ME, Windows NT Workstation, and Windows 2000 Professional. It is intended to be used by everyone - home users and business professionals. Microsoft released Windows XP in two versions: Home Edition and Professional. The primary difference between the two versions is that the Home Edition cannot join a Windows Domain (either Windows NT or Windows 2000) and has several other networking and security functions removed. This course is intended for power users and technical professionals who will be setting up and administering Windows XP Professional systems.

Through extensive hands-on exercises, students gain the fundamental knowledge and skills needed to install, configure and troubleshoot Cisco routers.
This course is designed to prepare students for the 2002 CompTIA's Network+ Exam N10-002. Earning the Network+ Certification means that students have the knowledge needed to use and maintain a wide range of network technologies. From this exam, students often move on to more advanced IT certifications, including Microsoft's MCSA and MCSE, and Novell's CNE.
