Where do you want to work?

Although some employers require only a postsecondary certificate, most require a bachelor’s degree in a field related to computer or information science.

Many continue to take courses throughout their careers and attend information technology (IT) conferences to keep up with the latest technology. Some businesses require that an administrator get a master’s degree.Licenses, Certifications, and Registrations
Certification programs are generally offered directly from vendors or from vendor-neutral certification providers. Certification validates knowledge and best practices required from network and computer systems administrators. Companies may require their network and computer systems administrators to be certified in the product they use. Microsoft and Cisco offer some of the most common certifications.Other Experience
