Network Server Administration - Certificate Program

Are you interested in becoming a network server administrator? Eastern Florida State College offers a Network Server Administration College Credit Certificate (CCC) program specifically designed for entry-level positions in this field.

The core courses cover a range of topics including network design, data protection, operating systems, network security, directory infrastructure, server maintenance, and more. These courses are delivered progressively, starting with computer networking and gradually introducing client and server operating systems, security measures, and advanced server administration concepts.

If you're already employed in the field, you can enhance your skills through various offerings in computer systems administration, network design and security, and related techniques.

Moreover, the credits you earn in this program can also be applied toward EFSC's Associate in Science (A.S.) degree in Network Systems Technology.

Network Server Administration Certificate - Course Curriculum

The certificate program consists of eight classes designed to develop your proficiency in the fundamental aspects of network servers.

Please note that two of the courses require a prerequisite: Exploring Digital Technology (CGS 1000), which must be completed before enrolling in those specific classes. If you're a full-time student, you can complete this CCC in two semesters. Part-time students may take a bit longer.
