IPVMU Installation Class - What To Cover?

We are thinking about launching an installation course. We already have several guides and surveys on best practices/tools/techniques, but we can pull it together as a fundamentals class.

Which topics would you like to see and which topics would be most helpful?

The goal is that a person with no install experience in security could take this course and at the end have a chance to be certified, signifying they know enough to 'hold their own' in terms of common installation tasks.

Please comment with your suggestions below. Thanks!
