Knaresborough-based IT services provider Vital Network Solutions has seen four of its engineers pass industry relevant examinations helping to strengthen the company’s offering to its clients.
Senior systems engineer Adam Willford and systems engineer Alex Taylor have been awarded the Microsoft Certified Solutions Expert (MCSE) qualification after passing exams in the technology giant’s flagship credential.
The qualification is a globally recognised standard for IT professionals, and proves the individual’s ability to build innovative solutions across multiple technologies.
It demonstrates the holder’s competence in server and desktop infrastructure, the cloud, messaging, communication, data platform and business intelligence.
Senior helpdesk engineer Ben Coltman has become a Microsoft Certified Professional (MCP) after passing the first of two exams, and which shows his IT professionalism and technical expertise.
This first level covers a wide range of Microsoft products, technologies and solutions and the exam involves multiple choice questions, drag and drop questions, hotspot questions along with scenario-based ones.
Meanwhile, helpdesk apprentice Sam Wood has passed the first part of two CompTIA A+ examinations which are seen as the starting point for a career in IT.
The tests cover maintenance of PCs, mobile devices, laptops, operating systems and printers.
CompTIA, also known as the Computing Technology Industry Association, is a non-profit trade association, and looks to advance the global interests of IT professionals and IT channel organisations.
A few days before passing his CompTIA exam he also passed his test to become a Microsoft Certified Technology Associate (MTA).
Lee Evans, Vital Network Solutions’ managing director said: “Adam, Ben, Alex and Sam have worked really hard to gain these qualifications so well done to all of them, and we’re really pleased to be able to continue supporting them as their careers develop.
“Having highly qualified employees is a major asset to us as we continue to grow year-on-year, and adds strength to our already highly competent IT management department.”
