Become Microsoft Certified Systems Administrator
The Microsoft Certified Solutions Associate (MCSA) is Microsoft's prevailing mid-range IT certification. It covers most administrative job roles, including system administration at both desktop and server levels, as well as more specialized job roles that include SQL Server and Office 365.
The MCSA is a prerequisite to all of the various flavors of Microsoft Certified Solutions Expert (MCSE) certification, which have long ruled the hearts and minds of those who work on Microsoft-based systems and servers. MCSE certifications focus on the latest technologies for servers, desktops, private clouds, databases, business intelligence, messaging, communication and collaboration.
But when it comes to system administration topics, the brightest lights in this group are those that address Windows Server at the enterprise and server administrator levels. While these credentials don't all specifically use "system administrator" in their descriptions, though many do, or refer to servers instead, they all fall well inside system administration job roles and responsibilities. They're also in fairly high demand in job postings and classified job advertisements.
Individuals are eligible to complete the MCSA certification requirements if they have one to 12 months of IT experience working with network and desktop operating systems, as well as a network infrastructure, according to the Microsoft Learning website.
