Studying for the Windows Server 2008 Active Directory, Configuring qualification has built up Ben’s expertise in configuring and managing Windows based server environments. Ben is now even better placed to support our many clients with Windows servers, and has gained the necessary skills to lead server installation projects in the future.

The Windows 7 Configuring exam tested Charley’s abilities in installing, upgrading, deploying and migrating to a Windows 7 desktop operating system. Charley now has the skills and expertise to install and support Windows 7 systems for Air-IT clients and to resolve any technical issues that may arise with them.

A Trio of Role Promotions

To mark their status as fully-fledged technicians and the completion of their apprenticeships, Alex, David and Josh have all received promotions.

Alex is now IT & Communications Technician, David a First Line Service Desk Technician and Josh has taken on the mantle as Service Desk Dispatcher. All three will continue looking after the technical support needs of both Air-IT and MBC clients in their new roles.

Throughout their apprenticeships, our trio of newly-promoted technicians have all become valuable and integral members of the Air-IT Service Desk team. Now, as fully-qualified technicians and equipped with the very latest skills and knowledge, they’ll be able to offer our customers even better technical support and customer service in the future.

And their journey doesn’t end here. Like all our technicians, Alex, David and Josh will be continuing their training and development with further qualifications and accreditations from ITIL, Microsoft and other leading vendors such as Sophos, Apple and 3CX.

Meanwhile, Ben and Charley will continue in their current roles in the Service Desk as they work towards the next set of qualifications. This includes a range of further Microsoft Server and Operating System based accreditations as well as 3CX engineer training.
