Tech 2000 Rolls Out OS X Certified Specialist Exam Series
Mar 08, 2013 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
Tech 2000, an IT training provider, announced its first series of OS X certifications to address the growing demand for technical professionals who specialize in a specific area of systems administration with the Apple OS X Lion Server technology.
According to a release, the certification verifies an in-depth knowledge of Apple OS X technical architecture and an ability to install and configure machines; enable, configure, and troubleshoot a range of services; and integrate OS X, OS X Server, iOS and other Apple technologies within a multi-platform networked environment.
This certification is intended for professional system administrators and engineers who manage medium-to-large networks of systems in multi-platform deployments. The certification was developed in partnership with Examplify, CompTIA's custom exam services subsidiary. Tech 2000 recognized the benefits of Examplify's offerings and is developing additional certifications with them as well.
"Tech 2000 faced a unique challenge this year - to evolve and grow its geographical footprint to support the growing demand for Apple OS X certified technicians," said George Churchwell, CEO of Tech 2000. "We leveraged our experience and expertise in the Apple OS X curriculum and mobile platforms to develop an application that integrated mobile virtual classroom capabilities, BYOD, and ISO testing standards to create a learning and certification application where OS X certifications can be delivered anywhere, anytime."
Despite the launch of OS X Mountain Lion last year, recent research shows that the market for OS X Lion servers is holding steady with 28 percent of all web traffic measured by Net Applications.
In addition to traditional testing formats, Tech 2000 has deployed this exam series using LearnItNowHD, an iPad application, to facilitate secured and proctored testing environments on an iPad. The application provides a testing experience with a variety of question formats. These include drag and drop, multiple choice and true or false with video and audio simulations. LearnItNowHD is available for download on iTunes.
