Available through Southeastern Technical College, the Microsoft Network Administrator Certificate program is intended to give students directly relevant training in Microsoft networking fundamentals. Completion of a certificate program may serve to bolster the resume of those seeking entry-level work or career advancement in an office assistant position. This program is available primarily online, providing some useful flexibility to working students that may have busy schedules. Some hands-on lab components may require completion at an approved location.
This program covers subjects such as the implementation of Microsoft operating system, the use and maintenance associated with Microsoft servers, and overall networking infrastructure. The coursework is designed to prepare students for the eventual completion of the Microsoft Certified IP Professional (MCITP) networking exam, should they so desire.
To complete the program, candidates must earn at least 16 hours of credit, a total that is typically finished in a three or four semester period. Applicants should recognize that they are able to start the program during any semester that the first required class, Microsoft Client, is offered. Outside of the three required courses, students can choose either Microsoft Server Administrator or Microsoft Exchange Server to finish out their certificate.
Microsoft Server Administrator focuses on server deployment, management, and application and data provisioning in order to prepare candidates for administrative maintenance of a Windows Server. The other option, Microsoft Exchange Server, focuses solely on the course's namesake, including its configuration, management, and support.
