Are there MCITP: SA online courses yet?

By mitcham ·
I am trying to find out where I can take the courses and tests required to become a MCITP: Server Administrator, preferrably online e-learnings. I don't want to pay $5,000 for a bootcamp. Those are 6 days that I cannot take off from work to do. I also can't stand just having a book to learn from. E-learning is the best route for me, but I cannot track down a course to take online.

So, are there any reliable online e-learnings for MCTS --> MCITP: Server Administrator?

The one on the Microsoft elearning site is not available yet. It says "Late 2008"... which does me no good. Am I not looking in the right place?

Microsoft Certified IT Professional

by mitcham In reply to here's 9

is what it stands for. It is taking place of the MCSE 2003 certification. There are plenty of MCSE e-learning courses online, but I don't want to spend the money on it if the certification will not be recognized in the next year or two. Also, the classes you listed are for the MCTS (MS Certified Technology Specialist), which I need, but those you listed are not the same MCTS I need.

This is all a little confusing... it took me 2 hours just to figure out what the heck I needed to take to get my MCITP: SA then another hour to find out the classes aren't even offered yet!

Keep in mind...

Most of these tests are not even available yet.

So far only some of the MCTS tracks have publisehed tests. It you can't wait then bet some books online and start the study process yourself at home. Give it a few more months and I'm sure that other tests and training classes will become avaialble.

MCITP training - Preplogic and ElementK

by pomo56 In reply to Are there MCITP: SA onlin ...

Take a look at Preplogic and ElementK. Two very different providers. One will likely work for you. Preplogic has full motion video and is a little more expensive. ElementK is more or less an animated powerpoint presentation and thus costs less. Both good but one will be better depending on your desired quality and budget constraints.
