Microsoft MCSA Certification Training - Network Technology and Systems Administration (NTSA) Department
New MCSA Certification Ranked #1 in Industry CertCities.com gives top honors to the Microsoft Certified Systems Administrator (MCSA) credential.
Upon completion of this program, students will be prepared for Microsoft certifications as an MCSA (Microsoft Certified System Administrator). “Microsoft Certified” next to your name means you meet Microsoft’s highest standards and tells employers you know your stuff. The MCSA credential proves that you have the skills to successfully implement, manage, and troubleshoot the ongoing needs of Microsoft Windows® 2003–based operating environments, including Windows .NET Server.
An MCSA candidate should have six to 12 months of experience working with a desktop operating system, a network operating system, and an existing network infrastructure.
