    Hello rebelmoe7

    Welcome to the forum, I'll try to answer yuor questions best i can..

    q1. What exactly is an mcsa?? - Microsoft Certified Systems Administrator, basically its made up of a number of different certificates, more info here http://www.microsoft.com/learning/mcp/mcsa/faq.mspx

    q2. Is the NVQ useful at all - All knowledge gained is useful, you dont mention what your studying, i'm guessing PC repair/setup etc. All courses paid for by your employer are worth it, by what you've said it looks like they have a set route for their apprentices, go for it:thumbleft

    q3.Can you advise me on anything else i can study at home or from books - Again difficult as you haven't specified what aspects you're studying, but for PC & Network introduction, have a look at the Comptia A+ and Network+ courses, both are excellent!

    It could happen! :thumbleft

    Get a Bachelors degree, continue working on your writing skills, and emigrate to the US, and we can talk about officially handing over the scepter to you.

    I can fast track a bachelor's in approximately six months with my current qualifications so I'll think it over! :p

    NVQ is just as equal as an SVQ I think and you want to aim at level 3 at least, and even level 4 if you can, if possible

    The MIcrosoft Certified Systems Administrator is what some Training Provider tried to rip me off with, good course, and not a lot would pay you to do it, and if your'e going to have it paid for you, DO IT!!!
