This course is suitable for people who:
- have an interest and some experience in networking
- want to formalise their Microsoft skills by achieving a recognised Microsoft qualification
- need to improve their Microsoft skills.
This course is not suitable for students who have no knowledge of networking, computers, or the application of computer systems in a work environment.
The programme is divided into a number of 16 week modules and prepares students for MCSA/MCITP or various MCTS qualifications. All courses are MOAC - "Microsoft Official Academic Courses".
The course is made up of 3-4 modules; each module leads to a Microsoft certification - some hold the title of Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist (MCTS) and others lead to the title of Microsoft Certified Solutions Associate (MCSA).
In addition to the Microsoft MOAC material, students will be expected to submit and pass an Edexcel Higher Education module assignment. This enables us to offer a course which covers Microsoft units up to £1500 cheaper than what is charged by commercial training organisations.
