  American Interactive's seven day MCITP Server Administrator Bootcamp (New MCSA Certification) and our twelve day MCITP Enterprise Administrator Bootcamp (New MCSE Certification) course is designed to certify and give your employees the skills needed to work with Microsoft's newest networking suite in the workplace. Everything you need to get certified is covered as your instructor goes over every line of our custom test preparation material, the most thorough and updated in the industry. After nearly ten years of delivering Microsoft bootcamps American Interactive is finally available to small companies and individuals.

1) Money back guarantee - If after taking the first exam in your Microsoft certification class (Windows 7) you are not 100% satisfied we will refund your FULL payment.

2) Class size limited to 12 students - Others run classes with 16-24 students. It’s not the number of trainers that’s important, it’s the number of students.

3) No cancellations - If American Interactive cancels your class for any reason we will either refund your FULL payment with an additional $1000 or you may reschedule your class and receive an additional $1000 discount. Starting June 1st 2006 all classes are guaranteed to run! Many others keep re-scheduling until they have full classes. American Interactive will run your class with very low enrollment if necessary as we realize your time is valuable.

4) Unlimited exam vouchers - We stand behind our training and feel the student should not have any additional out of pocket expenses. We cover all training costs. In the event you fail an exam we will pay for you to take the exam again (exams normally cost 150-250 a piece).

** Please call for details.

5) Books and online mentoring - American Interactive will ship MSPress books which are yours to keep (except in the case of refund/cancel). You will also have access to YOUR trainer before, during and after the class via the online mentoring system. Other providers use contract trainers so this is not possible with their services.

6) Experienced trainer - Jay Cline teaches ALL American Interactive Microsoft public offerings. Mr. Cline has been teaching MS bootcamps since Feb of 1999. Mr. Cline also writes all the custom courseware used in class and updates the courseware before each and every class we offer. Mr. Cline will also be your mentor before, during and after class.

7) Company Experience - American Interactive has been writing and delivering bootcamps since late 1997 (first in the industry). We have handled some of the largest accounts in the industry including Boston University, General Dynamics, the US Marines and others.

8) Repeat and referral business - Due to the quality of our courses, the package we offer and price American Interactive has a repeat and referral rate of over 85%.

9) Custom courseware - We don’t rely on outdated third party test preparation material or "brain dumps". We have been writing our own material since the beginning. Your trainer wrote the material used in class and updates it before each delivery.

10) Price - After eight years we have just started offering classes directly to the public so our prices are very low. This introductory offer may end at any time. Note: 2008 classes are being priced low for our upcoming ten year anniversary.

Student Comments:

I recently completed my CCNP after taking my MCSE with you guys. I wanted to let you know how satisfied I was with my training. I was referred to American Interactive by a friend who works for the Federal Reserve Bank in Boston. Everything he had told me about you guys was dead on. Since they use you guys for certification training and AI being the only company to offer a money back guarantee after I took the first test I decided to give bootcamps another try.

There are many things I liked but nothing comes close to how impressed I was with your trainers. I can honesty say it makes a huge difference having trainers that are not contractors and who write the material themselves. Jay and Toby are the best trainers I have seen in 22 years of IT training. Its also the first time I have taken a class where the trainers not only work for the company i took the training at but have done so for well over five years. It shows.

Unfortunately I took my CCNA with another provider. No books, no mentoring, no guarantees and despite the promises of 100% passing NO ONE passed the test the first time and 2 re-takes cost me another $250. This might of had something to do with the fact we had 24 students in class! What really bothered me was they had no actual equipment at the training center. While looking for my CCNP I noticed only two companies that actually had equipment and only you guys were authorized by Cisco. I was extremely impressed with the equipment used. With an eight student max I figured I may have a better shot this time around.

After being burned elsewhere I decided to take your MCSE before the CCNP. I figured with the money back guarantee I could leave and get my money back this time around. After the first test I was hooked!

You guys really do have a no risk package that offers far more then any of the other companies I have looked at. I also appreciated a web site that has all the information I needed without signing up for spam. No pressure sales is another thing I would keep up. When calling around it was also nice to speak with trainers and even your CEO.

I now understand why most of my class was repeat customers as I plan to send several people your way. Thanks again and keep up the good work. I only wish you had more class offerings that I need. I would not hesitate a second to give you guys a call.

What are the new certifications in Windows Server 2008?

Microsoft has removed the MCP, MCSE and MCSA certifications and has replaced them with MCTS (Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist) and MCITP (Microsoft Certified Information Technology Professional). The MCTS is similar to the old MCP certification, however, where the MCP was just a single generalized certification; the MCTS is specific to whichever exam you take to achieve it. For example, in the 2000/2003 certification track any number of exams (270, 290, 291, etc) would earn you the MCP credential but in the Windows Server 2008 exam track there are numerous MCTS certifications depending on the exams that you take, here are a few examples:

Exam 70-620 earns the MCTS: Configuring Windows Vista certification

Exam 70-640 earns the MCTS: Configuring Windows Server 2008 Active Directory

Exam 70-642 earns the MCTS: Configuring Windows Server 2008 Network nfrastructure

The MCITP certification is the higher level certification of the two. And just like the MCTS there are numerous MCITP certifications available as well. The MCITP: Server Administrator certification is the 2008 version of the MCSA on 2000/2003. While the MCITP: Enterprise Admin is the 2008 version of the MCSE on 2000/2003.

Can I upgrade my current Windows 2003 MCSA/MCSE to the new Windows Server 2008 certifications?

Yes, and we will be offering these classes! However, because of the exams needed we will only be offering a direct upgrade from the 2003 MCSE certification, not the 2003 MCSA certification.

Why are you not offering an upgrade from the 2003 MCSA certification?

We won’t be offering this course because the total number of exams needed for the upgrade and the full certification track are the same, so there is no “shortcut” by upgrading the MCSA, so anyone that has the MCSA can either finish their MCSE and then upgrade to 2008, or just jump into the 2008 full certification track.

What certifications will I receive in your class?

Server Admin (7-day):

MCTS: Windows Server 2008 Network Infrastructure Configuration
MCTS: Windows Server 2008 Active Directory Configuration
MCITP:  Server Administrator

Server & Enterprise Admin (12-day):

MCTS: Windows Server 2008 Applications Infrastructure Configuration
MCTS: Windows Server Virtualization, Configuration
MCTS: Windows 7 – Configuration
MCITP:  Enterprise Server Administrator

Do I have to take the entire class at once?

No. You can split them up and take the MCITP: Server Administrator first, then come back another time to finish the MCITP: Enterprise Administrator.

I haven’t finished my 2003 MCSA/MCSE certification yet, should I just forget it and jump into the 2008 certifications?

Yes. By the time you upgrade your MCSA to MCSE then take the MCSE to MCITP Enterprise upgrade you have the seat time and cost of the full MCITP Enterprise class. In fact the full MCITP Enterprise class would cost less and take only 12 days.
