TestOut Launches First Online Labs for Windows 2008 MCITP Certification Training

TestOut Corporation announced the availability of the first complete Server and Enterprise Administrator Microsoft Certified IT Professional (MCITP) certification courses with online labs. The online labs provide hands-on experience to help pass certification exams and put their skills to use in their careers.

Pleasant Grove, UT (PRWEB) June 10, 2009 — TestOut Corporation–provider of online labs for IT certification training–today announced the availability of the first complete Server and Enterprise Administrator Microsoft Certified IT Professional (MCITP) certification courses with online labs. Whether purchased individually or taken through academic courses, TestOut's LabSim software enhances learning with a cost-effective, virtual environment that enables students to experience all of the functionality of the technology they are learning from their own computer. This gives them the experience and knowledge required as they prepare to pass their IT certifications exams, and ultimately, to put their new skills to use.

  According to one recent reviewer, "The future for Windows Server 2008 could hardly be rosier." As a result, an increasing number of IT professionals are seeking–and achieving–MCITP certifications. As of April 2009, Microsoft says 13,441 people worldwide have achieved MCITP Enterprise Administrator certification (focused on day-to-day operations and management) with 7,986 receiving Server certification (focused on Windows infrastructure design).

"Students preparing to compete for IT jobs, especially related to Windows Server 2008, can differentiate themselves with both industry certifications and hands-on experience," said Noel Vallejo, CEO, TestOut. "LabSim's online lab simulations enable this experience so students complete their training prepared for more than just a paper certificate, but with a true understanding of what they've been learning."

The LabSim MCITP courses for Server 2008 include:

 

 
  • 172 lab simulations that let students work hands-on in a simulated environment to practice the skills required to become MCITP certified.

 
  • 160 instructor-led MCITP training videos and more than 173 demonstrations

 
  • 265 study guides and fact sheets that students can read to gain a further understanding of the concepts covered in all of the training videos, demonstrations, and lab exercises.

 
  • Fully integrated section quizzes and practice certification exams with more than 800 sample questions. The integrated software immediately directs students struggling with certain topics in the exams to the location of the material so they can increase their study in the deficient topic.
