MCSA Windows Server 2008 Instructor - led Course Overview
Non-credit, Short-term Program

MCSA Logo | Classes Tampa and Orlando, FloridaMicrosoft’s Windows Server 2008 MCSA stands for the Microsoft Certified Solutions Associate in Windows Server 2008. This certification is for “professionals who implement, manage, and troubleshoot existing network and system environments based on the Microsoft Windows 2008 Operating Systems. These individuals typically do not deploy new networks and systems as part of their job function, as is expected of individuals holding the MCSE credentials. MCSA is a prerequisite for the MCSE certifications.

While the MCSA has been an established and well regarded certification since 2000, it has been recently updated.  In the past this certification stood for Microsoft Certified Systems Administrator.  Microsoft has updated this exam and title to keep pace with the many advances since the MCSA was first presented.  This allows it to continue to serve as the watermark for an excellent foundation in Microsoft solutions.

Employers today are looking for proof of hands-on skills.  Employers know that having a MCSA in Windows Server 2008 validates that you have truly up-to-date core abilities.

Job roles of those pursuing this certification typically include: systems administrator, network administrator, information systems administrator, network operations analyst, network technician, or technical support specialist.
