Anyone can claim to be an IT Expert

Setting up your computer networks and servers is an important job that shouldn’t be left to a self-proclaimed "expert". A bad experience is going to result in significant ongoing business productivity problems. Instead of a solution that will save you time and money, all your time and energy is now spent fixing things. How can you solve the problems of tomorrow when you are looking at what went wrong yesterday? That’s what makes qualifications so important when it comes to IT support staff.

What qualifications to look for

At NetCare, we’ve had great success with consultants who have TAFE certificates, as well as University graduates with IT degrees. But that’s often only the beginning. Because ours is a fast changing and ever moving industry, we like our people to stay up to date with the very latest vendor training. What could be better for your business than having IT Support staff trained in the actual hardware and software you're running?

Which vendor certifications are the best?

Considered the Gold Standard by many in the business, Microsoft Accreditation for all technical staff is critical to look for when it comes to choosing your new IT Support Provider.

Keep it current

And while accreditation is great to have, it’s not the end of the story. A recent new client told us a horror story of their server needing to be completely rebuilt because their previous provider sent onsite a support technician with Server 2008 accreditation and made a disastrous mistake.

NetCare is committed to ongoing qualifications and vendor certification, even though this involves a financial commitment and the provisioning of study leave.
