Microsoft Server Administration (CCL)
The Certificate of Completion (CCL) in Microsoft Server Administration program is designed to provide training for professionals who implement, manage, and troubleshoot existing network and system environments based on current Microsoft Server operating systems. The courses in the program are also designed to help prepare for Microsoft Certified Product Specialist (MCP).
Typical tasks of a Microsoft Certified Systems Administrator (MCSA) are implementing, managing, and troubleshooting networks containing messaging services, file and print servers, and firewalls. In addition a MCSA may be responsible for configuring Internet access, to enabling remote access for users, and to managing client computers.
You must earn a grade of "C" or better in all courses within the program.
The courses in this program may also be applied towards an Associate degree (AAS) in Microsoft Networking Technology if you wish to continue your studies.
