Microsoft Certified Systems Administrator -MCSA

This MCSA Certification Training Course is available in our Pitman Training Centre in Swords.

 Why Choose MCSA?

  • The Desktop and Server products form only part of the Windows system. An MCSA has to be able to fully manage and administer the network environment. Microsoft introduced this qualification in recognition of the fact that the MCSE programme was too advanced for what most operators required in industry as it covers the designing of the network infrastructure.
  • The MCSA is currently recognised as the “Hottest Certification” and demand is anticipated to grow into the foreseeable future. Microsoft’s own research points to a 13% rise in demand year-on-year.
  • For those with longer term ambitions the MCSA is well on the way to becoming an MCSE.
