Database Fundamentals - Certification

Trevor Package

Besides taking a Hands-on training to become a Database Administrator, one very important component that most aspiring DBAs forget to consider is certification. Although certifications are not a requirement for all DBA jobs out there, most companies now-our-days, turn to give more attention to certified candidates over their peers who are not certified. Because these companies did not train you, they turn to rely on a global standard use to evaluate applicant’s competency and this is where certification comes in.

Microsoft has clearly outlined the Certification path for MSSSQL Server database administration starting with Microsoft Technology Associate in Database fundamental (MTA) to Microsoft Certified Solutions Expert (MCSE). Microsoft recently announced changes in the certification path. However, MTA certification is still maintained as it is an entry level certification that validates fundamental technology knowledge. 

Base on the above facts, although our SQL database administration training is focused on giving you the hands-on experience in performing all task related to database administration, demonstrate working knowledge as a DBA, work on real life DBA projects, Resume review and interview preparation, we also take into account the certification route in providing the necessary certification path and material to our trainees. Within the first 6 weeks of training, our trainees will have the knowledge and material ready to Write and pass the MTA Certification in database fundamentals.
