Courses in the Microsoft Certified IT Professional Certificate Program

Networking Essentials

Although the Networking Essentials course is not required for an M.C.I.T.P. certification, we begin our program with this course as a means to ensure all our students come up to about the same course entry level in terms of networking skills.

Course Objectives

  • Introduction to the basic concepts and principles that underlie computer networking, from the simplest peer-to-peer local area networks to the vastly complex wide area networks that reach across international boundaries and around the world.
  • Conduct an overview of networking terminology
  • Examine different network architectures
  • Focus on the physical components of computer networks, including server and client computers, and cabling and connectors

The program also includes network connectivity, the nuts and bolts of designing and rolling out a complete network, and a review of environmental factors that affect networks, as well as administering, upgrading, troubleshooting and relocating networks.

We invite you to visit the Microsoft website for more information on this certification and the courses we include in our program.

Note: This is not a test prep course. Our experience has shown that students in the "test prep mode" are only interested in passing the exam, not truly understanding the material. However, the course does provide an excellent foundation for earning the M.C.I.T.P. certification for Enterprise Administration. The course builds technical proficiency which is measured by the Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist (M.C.T.S.) certification. Therefore, participants can have the very achievable objective of earning one or more M.C.T.S. certifications while on their way to earning an M.C.I.T.P. certification.
