Q1: Who presented the Webinars?

The webinars were presented by:

Steve Zobrist: Steve is our senior industry based Microsoft Networking Lecturer; he delivers his subjects from Switzerland. Steve completed his Master of Networking and Systems Administration with us in 2009 and in his ‘spare’ time he is now studying for his Doctor of Information Technology where he is researching ‘How Commercial Off The Shelf (COTS) technologies can be adapted to chemical laboratories and chemical production plants‘.

When I first met Erdal it quickly became apparent why he regularly wins Best Speaker at Microsoft TechEd Trade shows around the world, because his enthusiasm is infectious. Erdal is currently running his first Microsoft cerification based subject with us – ITI536 Supporting a Network Infrastructure -, and is also enrolled in the Master of Networking and Systems Administration after which he is planning to commence the Doctor of Information Technology.

Question 2: Do I get a certificate if I complete the course?

As the official sitting period has now lapsed, no more certificates are able to be issued. You are still able to complete the exam for your own benefit and test your knowledge.

Question 3: Will the course qualify me for university credit?

Successful completion of 3 live University Short Courses will award credit for an elective subject. Please note this course is NOT LIVE and will not qualify you for credit.
