MCSA Night and/or Weekend Classes?

Hi all,

I've been looking feverishly for an MCSA night and/or weekend course, but have come up empty. I've tried the self-study pace via videos, books, etc., but I've found that I cannot learn that way. I need a live instructor, classroom setting. I've filled out several 'contact us' forms over the past week, but haven't heard back yet.

I work full-time, married, kids, etc. I'm in the IT industry, but my company won't send me to training...yet.

I'm looking for an MCSA program (410, 411, 412) on weeknights and/or weekends preferrably in the southern california area, specifically Orange County. I've looked at the local colleges, but they offer online only or it's one semester per class (sometimes 8 weeks).

The closest I've come so far is ONLC.com which has an 'After Hours' program. It's a virtual instructor but in a classroom setting. While it's not "in-person" instruction, it's the closest I've found.

Any ideas? Please help!

thanks for reading!

    Have you checked any nearby community colleges? Many of them have certification programs that are offered during off hours to accommodate situations just like yours.

    I would definitely check community colleges. The only offerings around here are from the questionable for-profit schools.

    Thanks, guys. I've checked the local community colleges, and they do offer the classes, but it's an online only format and it's per semester. To complete the MCSA, I'm looking at at least 2 semesters. I'm hoping for something more 'boot-camp-esque'. Maybe I'm being too picky, haha. I'm sure there's has to be a legitimate program that caters to the working adult.

    I'll keep scouring the local school programs
