Benefits of Certification
For IT professionals, certification is a third party validation of your skills, that helps distinguish you from your peers. Beyond demonstrating a level of competency and proficiency, certification proves that you are committed to your cause and that you've invested the time and money to prove it. Holding a certification also makes you a more valuable employee, and often results in raises, promotions, and a better career.
For organizations, certifications identify the credentials that can be used to hire the right employee. Having certified employees also increases sales for the organization by proving to prospective clients that the organization has the skills to support its claims.

Washington State Penitentiary (also called the Walla Walla State Penitentiary) is a Washington State Department of Correctionsmen's prison located in Walla Walla, Washington. With an operating capacity of 2200, it is the second largest prison in the state (afterCoyote Ridge Corrections Center) and is surrounded by wheat fields.
The Department of Corrections IT networking department used Microsoft Dynamics GP integrated with Microsoft SQL Server as an accounting solution to automate their processes. But their employees were not trained in GP so they outsourced the maintenance to the Partner from whom they bought the software. The Partner had initially configured and implemented the software for them, but was now also responsible for regular maintenance. However, the Department of Corrections wanted to reduce the costs of outsourcing by getting their own employee trained on GP. They decided to get six people trained and NetCom sold them the value of getting the master certification for installation and configuration, financials, inventory and order processing for their team.
NetCom created a custom training plan for them to satisfy all their needs. NetCom provided them with fifteen days of onsite training. The training prepared them for SQL server elective to get master certification in GP 9. The training solution included modules from Financial, Installation, Configuration, Inventory and order processing along with SQL Server training. NetCom provided them with exam vouchers, books and custom certification preparation they need for the training.The six students trained were the ones responsible for the Department of Corrections networks for the entire state of Washington. Instead of continuing to hire experts to administer and maintain their system, they invested in education to raise their own in house GP experts.
The training helped improved their productivity. They cut down their costs significantly by implementing the software in-house rather than outsourcing. Microsoft Dynamics GP integrated with Microsoft SQL Server training from NetCom helped them deliver on a long-term vision of community safety by installing and configuring their financials by inventory and order processing.
SQL Server 2012 Training
Published On: 25 October 2012
Customer: Steve Simon
Location: New York, NY, US
Steve is an experienced IT consultant particularly in the area of SQL DBA and programming, but had not had the time to keep up with the latest advancements in his field. His business had lost large contracts due to his lack of knowledge of delivering SQL business intelligence reports. He needs to update his skill set so that he can offer the latest in SQL capabilities to increase sales for his business.
A NetCom Learning educational consultant sent Steve a link about upcoming SQL courses at NetCom Learning. The recommendation was for a Boot camp or Learning Package that offered intensive Microsoft SQL Server 2012 training and three different courses under one umbrella including Querying SQL, Administering SQL Databases, and Implementing a Data Warehouse using SQL Server.
The SQL training is allowing Steve to better serve his existing customers and gives him the skill sets he needs in order to win SQL contracts based on being able to deliver business intelligence reporting capabilities. He has decided he needs to study the material and use it in the field before sitting for his certification exam in SQL, but he feels the training was very helpful in learning the material. I was able to learn technology, face to face, from experts in their fields, Steve said. He was also grateful for the information he received about the class, saying that the link to the website was just the training he needed and wanted. Steve will also be taking additional coursework in SQL at NetCom Learning to continue to keep his skills current.

We provide award-winning services to healthcare institutions, universities and school districts, stadiums and arenas, and businesses in 22 countries around the world.
In response to multiple requests to resolve technical problems having to do with using older hardware, such as printers, and new computers, the service desk area performed a software assessment and determined that the use of the Microsoft Windows PowerShell software application would meet the company's needs. The assessment determined that PowerShell would work to deliver a new program that would take care of the technical problems. The assessment was done in March and April of 2013 and the determination that the staff would need training in PowerShell to take full advantage of the application was determined in June 2013.
With the company holding several Microsoft Software Assurance Vouchers, NetCom Learning Consultant was able to provide the right solution to the Departments Manager with a standard training solution in Windows PowerShell that would meet the company's needs and help resolve the technical issues. Since the company's Senior Technical Analyst is located in Philadelphia, NetCom Learning Consultant successfully provided a live online training method, allowing the professional to get the training without the hassle of travelling.
Since the training, the company has been able to implement the needed programmatic fix for the technical issues. In addition, the company has determined that Windows PowerShell has many additional uses for the company's highly distributed IT infrastructure. The company is now looking at using PowerShell in the area of data collection, local machine administration, and security compliance. The fact that company staff is now well trained in the application will allow the organization to fully utilize the power of Windows PowerShell to meet company needs and grow the business. Aramark staff credits NetCom Learning with providing the right type of training and recommendations and exactly the level of training needed to get the job done.
