Hi Onytoo,
So is it your option that an IT network administrator for a small sized server based company with 300-500 network users, or moving into a medium sized company with 500-1000 network users and a bank of 5-6 Windows server running active directory would be capable of administrating this network with, "No formal computer education background at all?"

I am sorry to tell you, but the last position I got here in Canada during 2000 was for a network administrator running what I would call a mid-sized network consisting of a bank of 14 servers and 1,000 users under active directory. In order to get this position I needed:
- 10 plus years of experience.
- Microsoft certification in Windows 2003 servers.
- Microsoft certification in Active Directory.
- Microsoft certification in SQL Server.
- 3 to 4 years of post secondary eduction in a major computer discipline that I will not go into here.

I would not even have been considered for such a position without some form of formal training. Granted the 10 plus years was also a large factor as well. That is to say that the practical experience was in fact worth just as much as the formal education was, but in the last job I acquired the employer wanted both.

No negative implications here intended, but I just want to understand better why your opinion is against some formal IT education.
