Training for System Manager

Unlike many other professions, there is no single path to becoming a system manager. Many system managers have a degree in a related field: computer scienceinformation technologycomputer engineering, information system management, or even a trade school program. Other schools have offshoots of their Computer Science program specifically for system administration.

Some schools have started offering undergraduate degrees in System Administration. 

As of 2008,However, many other schools offer related graduate degrees in fields such as network systems and computer security.

One of the primary difficulties with teaching system administration as a formal university discipline, is that the industry and technology changes much faster than the typical textbook and coursework certification process. By the time a new textbook has spent years working through approvals and committees, the specific technology for which it is written may have changed significantly or become obsolete.

In addition, because of the practical nature of system administration and the easy availability of open-source server software, many system managers enter the field self-taught.

Generally, a prospective will be required to have some experience with the computer system he or she is expected to manage. In some cases, candidates are expected to possess industry certifications such as the MCSAMCSEMCITP, Red Hat RHCE, Novell CNA,CNE, Cisco CCNA or CompTIA's A+ or Network+Sun Certified SCNALinux Professional Institute among others.

Sometimes, almost exclusively in smaller sites, the role of system manager may be given to a skilled user in addition to or in replacement of his or her duties. For instance, it is not unusual for a mathematics or computing teacher to serve as the system manager of a secondary school.
