    Howdy,

    I'm after some advice and figured this is the best place.

    I've been working in IT for about 10 years in a number of roles from Desktop to server support and back to desktop again.

    Now, I havent got any certifications or done any offical training but have picked some experience along the way, installing servers, user admin, setting up Group Policies, software deployment.

    Work are now sending me on a course with qa.com, M6419: Configuring Managing and Maintaining Windows Server 2008 Servers to be exact.

    My question is - After taking the course, would I be in a good position to take a server 2008 certification.

    I'm also thinking of doing a Windows 7 one too....

    Not sure, tbh, this course doesn't appear to map directly to any exams (that I can find).

    That does seem odd.
    I think there was a 'managing and maintaining' exam for 2003, but 2008 all seem to be configuration exams.

    I'm sure QA will be able to tell you.

    Here is a link to the 2008 course, http://www.qa.com/training-courses/technical-it-training/microsoft/microsoft-windows-
    server/microsoft-windows-server-2008-and-r2/configuring,-managing-and-maintaining-windows-server-2008-r2-servers

    The Windows 7 one is more of a personal one, 70-640 I think
