If you like working with networks, and prefer day-to-day administration instead of actual system engineering… then MCSA Certification is for you!
What is MCSA and what will it do for me?
Microsoft® Certified Systems Administrator – MCSA – is the official Microsoft-recognized certification that gives you the skills to managing, supporting, and troubleshooting the ongoing needs of Microsoft® Windows® server-based operating environments. MCSA’s are able to analyze business requirements and design and implement the infrastructure for business solutions. It’s one of the fastest growing qualifications in the UK and is aimed at support and administration positions.

You will gain vital experience managing and supporting a desktop server and network operations in an existing network infrastructure. MCSA makes up the first four units of the MCSE – Microsoft Certified System Engineer – training course; it covers network administration. If you have limited on-the-job experience, then MCSA is better suited to the types of jobs you will be applying for. Microsoft strongly recommends that you have a minimum of one year’s experience with Microsoft servers, networks and operating systems before starting the MCSE certification coursework.
  You will have experience with the following:
Administering a domain
Using Active Directory
Changing network permissions
Configuring client machines for use with the domain
Troubleshooting problems in a business environment
"Why does Microsoft recommend at least 1 years experience?"
  The MCSE will qualify you to design, implement and support Microsoft networks as well as how to consult on businesses IT needs.

Employers do seek out MCSE qualified staff to fill these positions, but due to the senior level of these positions they will require previous experience. For this reason if you do not have any previous experience then you are wasting your time by completing the full MCSE track. Instead you should look to take the set of qualifications that is best tailored to secure you an entry level IT position.

If you are looking to start a new career in IT then you are most likely to secure a job in some sort of IT support or network administration type role.
"How do I get an MCSA?"
  To achieve the MCSA without a year’s commercial experience you need to start with the CompTIA A+ and Network+. These two courses are the recognised foundation certifications required before starting, and also count as one of the four exams towards the MCSA.

A+ and Network+ certifications are aimed at confident PC users with no previous commercial experience.

The A+ covers concepts of IT, PC hardware as well as some legal issues within the IT industry. It is the most recognised certification for PC technicians and will give you the skills to build, maintain and support desktop PC’s both hardware and software. CompTIA does not just deal with Microsoft Windows PC’s, but also Linux and Macintosh. They cover the concepts behind computing to cover your foundation knowledge. In the industry we call this a vendor neutral certification.
  After studying the A+ you will be able to :
Have in depth knowledge of the components that make up computers and how to assemble them.
Be able to diagnose computer problems both hardware and software
Install, repair and maintain laptops, PC's, Printers and scanners
Understand what a network is and be familiar with basic configuration and troubleshooting
Understand many PC related security issues
Use advanced computing concepts
Know how computers impact on the environment and how to dispose of them.
  The Network+ is an introduction into networking. It gives you good foundation knowledge of the principles and technologies used in IT networking, as well as explanations of how the hardware, like network cards, are used. The latest Network plus exam is the N10-003.
  After studying the Network+ you will be able to:
Understand networking fundamentals and principles of networking technologies
Use network media, devices and operating systems.
Be able to configure wireless technologies
Use remote access services
Know about network security
Diagnose network faults and perform disaster recovery
  Once you have done your A+ and Network+ you need to complete these 3 Microsoft Certified Professional (MCP) courses:
70-270 Installing, Configuring, and Administering Windows XP Professional or 70-620 Windows Vista Configuration
70-290 Managing and Maintaining a Windows Server 2003 Environment
70-291 Implementing, Managing, and Maintaining a Windows Server 2003 Network Infrastructure
  Once you have passed the A+, Network+ and the 3 MCP exams, you will be a Microsoft Certified Systems Administrator.
  These courses cover the administration of a Microsoft network. After you complete them, you will be certified to work on any existing Microsoft network.
