The Server 2003 Administrator / Systems Engineer Program is a program that prepares individuals with all of the skills needed to be successful as a Server Administrator in today┐s corporate environment. This program was put together based on New Horizons of Minnesota┐s research of our 7,000 corporate IT students and the transcripts of Server Administrators we have helped increase their skills over that past 4 years. This program covers the foundational skills found in the 3 most popular CompTIA Certifications of A+, Network +, as well as Security +. Then we make sure our students have all of the skills needed to support the desk operating system and server operating system including Active Directory, IIS6.0, and Terminal Services. Other skills that we cover in this program that helps differentiate our program from others as well as what will make you a more productive administrator are PowerShell for writing scripts and automation, as well as a solid background on the end user side of SharePoint. Upon completion of our Server 2003 Administrator / Systems Engineer Program and passing the exams, students will earn three certifications. One for CompTIA┐s A+ (two exams) ,one for Network +, and one for Security+.
