Network & Database Administrator


Microsoft: MCSA Certifications: 7 certifications

The Network Database Administrator program is offered at all of our college locations. It is designed to help you to build and develop the necessary set of skills to successfully manage, deploy, build, design and optimize databases and database servers. Plus, you will gain a level of expertise and familiarity with the Windows Server 2008 & SQL Server 2012 platform, boosting flexibility and scope of knowledge within the workforce.

The main role of a database administrator has to do with overseeing the installation and ongoing function of software on a system designed for use by a number of users. There are several specific responsibilities that the typical database administrator will perform in just about any corporate environment, the most basic of which involve installing new databases. As part of database installation, the database administrator will set up login credentials to authorized persons, define the privileges associated with each authorized user, and ensure that every work station attached to the network is set up to access the new database. This process usually involves a period of troubleshooting, when the database administrator will address and resolve any problems that users experience with the new product.

You don’t need extensive technical experience to pursue an exciting career in Information Technology (IT). If you’re analytical, enjoy problem-solving and new technology, and you’re looking to get established in a challenging new career, training as MCTS Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist could be a good option for you.
