Note: This course is for people involved in Microsoft Teams Administration, not end users.

Whilst this is not a PowerShell course, as PowerShell is one of the core administrative tools within Microsoft 365 products - there will be PowerShell steps referenced within the course and used in the labs. Where PowerShell is used in the labs Students can either copy and paste the instructions, or in most exercises use a GUI alternative method (though sometimes a GUI alternative is not available). A high level understanding of what PowerShell is would be very beneficial, but not absolutely essential for this course.
