Program Description | IT Home


At UMBC Training Centers, we offer training classes geared to help IT Professionals with a Microsoft Certified Systems Administrator (MCSA) Certification upgrade to the Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer (MCSE) Certification. The Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer (MCSE) certification will assist IT professionals who want to demonstrate their technical expertise in designing and implementing business solutions based on the Windows platform and Windows Server system.

Certification Requirements

The best way to demonstrate your expert skills on Windows Server 2003—and to inspire confidence in a hiring manager, your team, and yourself—is by earning the Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer (MCSE) credential.

The MCSE credential verifies your ability to analyze the business requirements for information systems solutions, and to design and implement infrastructures based on Windows Server 2003.

An MCSA on Microsoft Windows Server 2003 has already met several of the requirements for the MCSE on Windows Server 2003 credential. This shortens the upgrade path considerably.

    • 70-294 - Planning, Implementing, and Maintaining a Microsoft Windows Server 2003 Active Directory Infrastructure
