South Africa MCSE or MCITP? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Good Day to all,

    I request guidance in terms of my academic direction, I currently reside in South Africa 22 years of age. I have recently completed my A+ & N+ Certification with CompTIA. I can’t decide which is best in terms of growth to my career, to start with MCITP as it is a upgrade course or MCSE as it is widely utilised in all current corporate environments. I acknowledge the noticeable yet I am still to grow in Job status. Will it be best to go ahead with MCITP knowing it might be implemented soon or MCSE as it is the current systems?

  • Hi Deevo99

    If you come to South Africa, you can lookup Torque-IT. I would say that they are your best bet in providing you with exams and Instructor-led classes.

    About MCSE or MCITP, I wouldn't be able to suggest either one above the other, if you can still do the MCSE, go for it. I am an MCSE, and if I'm not mistaken, you could then just do a few (much less than the original amount for MCSE) to "upgrade" to MCITP. Depending on which direction you choose to go in.

    MCITP will not be a bad choice. BTW, if I'm not mistaken MCITP is allready implemented all over the world, but MCSE is still a valid certification.
