Is Microsoft MCSA course in Goa easy to learn?

Not really. It is an uphill climb for those who are extremely and entirely new to the concept of systems administration.

This is exactly where Vedasys steps in. Our experience SME (Subject Matter Experts) ensure that your depth of preparation matches your aspirations. The best part is that, unlike other programs, we are not bound by pre-requisites and are open to accepting candidates of any and all backgrounds.

MCSA Course Prerequisites – Eligibility

It helps if you do have an IT background, since it aids you in learning faster, but is no by means completely necessary. We will add additional knowledge modules depending on where you are at, and help you complete the course in its entirety.

The MCSA is a foundational certification for those seeking a mid to high level systems administration profession.

MCSA Certification Validity

The MCSA certification will never expire. The MCSE certification expires in 3 years. A re-certification exam is to be given to ensure continuing validity of the same.

Having said that, in a general sense any certification is only useful to you and your employers for the lifetime of the technology it represents. It has little meaning after such a technology is announced EOL (End of Life). Say for e.g. Microsoft Windows 2003.

MCSA Certification Cost | MCSE Certification Cost

Exam fee for MCSA Certification official Certification exam is the same for all 3 papers: 70-740, 70-741, 70-742.

Do you have to certify for MCSA before appearing for the MCSE?

Yes and No.

Simply put, the MCSA is a mid-level certification you can obtain between your MCP (Microsoft Certified Professional) and your MCSE course. To achieve the MCSA, you are required to pass three papers. If you take on one additional elective subject, you will end up with the MCSE in that specific discipline.

How long does it take to get MCSA certification?

Between 1-3 months depending on the amount of time you are able to devote to preparations and how much in-depth study you need before proceeding.

It is best not to worry about the duration of time required as long as you are regular and disciplined. Vedasys provides a solid 50-60 hours training course, maybe even more if you feel you need more time to master the subject matter.
