“Bottom line, our employees are our biggest asset and the key to our growth and success,” continued Hales. “This year alone, more than 20 individual team members have invested their time and efforts to achieve a combined close to 100 certifications with our industry partners, raising our level of professionalism and expertise. In this case we’re talking technical training, but we invest in our people across the board, whether it’s HR training or an MBA, we focus on continued education and are proud to do so.”
All courses were taught by Robert G. Parsons, president of Automated Office Solutions in Evansville, Indiana. He began his teaching career with Novell in 1990 and became a Microsoft Certified System Engineer (MCSE) and Microsoft Certified Trainer (MCT) in 1996.
“I think that the Microsoft certifications demonstrate a technology solutions company’s commitment to learning,” said Parsons. “It shows that staying abreast of changing technology is beneficial to providing the best service to the client. Attending the classes and performing the labs allows an IT professional to have the practical skills to best serve the client’s needs.”
According to Microsoft, a Windows Server™ 2008 MCSA credential differentiates an IT professional as better able to work with the operating system in a real-world business context and will ensure that he or she has the skills to successfully implement, manage and troubleshoot the ongoing needs of Microsoft Windows® operating environments. Microsoft credentials also offer IT professionals and the companies that employ them a competitive edge by validating specific experience required by network and systems administrators in today’s constantly changing business environment.
