Southville studes now Microsoft certified

MANILA, Philippines – Recording 100 percent passing rate, current students and graduates of Southville International School and Colleges (SISC) Information Technology course recently gained Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist certification on the implementation and maintenance of Microsoft Databases (SQL Server 2005).

“A year ago, we launched the Microsoft IT Academy since we felt that the current curriculum caters to computer scientists/researchers and not technology professionals. Our curriculum reflects industry standards from Microsoft instead of the more traditional computer theory,” said Rex Wallen Tan, one of the Microsoft certified trainers and the operations director of SISC.

He added, “We set lofty goals knowing that the SQL Server certification usually takes two to three months of preparation for experienced professionals and were astounded that our students did so well. We chose certifications based on SQL Server since Databases are present in all modern businesses. The majority of corporations outside of the IT sector run databases, and even SAP runs on SQL Server! I graduated from the top University in Europe for technology and I can assure all my students that their credentials are recognized worldwide.”

 SQL Server 2005 certification is valued worldwide due to the degree of difficulty with training kits and preparation guides typically being over 1000 pages in length. The IT industry is very volatile and demands very high quality professionals preferably those who are internationally certified by IT giants like, Microsoft Corp., Cisco Systems, SAP, Sun Microsystems, Oracle Corp. etc.

There is still a skills shortage in both UK and USA for highly skilled technology professionals despite the global recession. The earning power of these professionals abroad is significantly higher than the wages of the more traditional professions (nursing, hotel and restaurant staff, etc). The average salary in the UK for technology professionals is around 42,000 pounds per year or P3.2 million.
