Application Virtualization with Microsoft App-V 5 - English Course (Code: AS-MSAVE)


During this four-day instructor-led course you will learn how to work with Microsoft Application Virtualization 5 (including latest changes in Service Packs and Hotfixes). We do not cover the "other" MDOP components which allows much more time for deep-dives and hands on Sequencing.

Delegates will get a complete overview, knowledge and practical information based on the "Microsoft Application Virtualization Platform v5"platform. After completing this course you will have profound knowledge of the App-V platform and (advanced) Sequencing skills using industry best practices.  


  • Package Engineers, System administrators and IT Professionals focusing on desktop- and application deployment.


  • Basic knowledge of Application Management, Client/Server & Server Based Computing is desired, not required.
