Computer Networking Operating Systems I (CVCNO)

Advanced Certificate

Description

This program lays a foundation in preparation for a profession as a Microsoft Certified IT Professional. Students will install, configure, and troubleshoot Microsoft Client Server Networks. The program is designed to deploy and manage both Windows Server 2003 and Server 2008 with Client Workstations in simulated real-life situations. Administering, managing, monitoring, and troubleshooting of Server 2008 Active Directory, Network Services, and other Server functions are all emphasized. All Server configured activities are tested out using Client Workstations to ensure they work, just as in a real business environment. The program is structured for both those who are working towards Microsoft Server 2003 MCSA/MCSE certifications, and/or Server 2008 MCTS/MCITP certifications. Also those already having certification who want to enhance their knowledge with the newer operating systems, as well as those who may just want to learn how to effectively implement these technologies are welcome.

Admissions Requirements

Completion of the Computer Systems Technology Program (CTCSTC) or CST 150 and CST 225 with a minimum grade of "C," passing the COMPTIA certification, or equivalent industry experience.

What Students Say About Online Classes

“My teacher posted his lectures and activities on Blackboard weekly, so I was able to complete all required class work and tests at my own leisure. Most importantly, I learned a ton in the course, and my excellent instructor was available by email around the clock.”
