Instructor Bio

Chuck Moore

MCT, MCSE, MCDBA, MCTS, CNI,
CNE, A+, Network+ Security+

Chuck graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Education and taught public school in 1980. He soon moved to the IT world at Scientific Atlanta and provided PC support for the in-house engineers. Novell NetWare was the first networking platform that Chuck experienced. He became a CNE and advanced his technical skills further when he began teaching as a Novell CNI. Chuck continued teaching and providing technical support when he became an MSCE and MCT for the NT 4.0 operating system, as well as the Server 2000/2003/2008/2012 operating systems. In addition, Chuck is certified and teaches classes as an MCDBA / MCTS for the Microsoft SQL Server 2000/2005/2008 applications. Chuck's early experiences in hardware support transitioned nicely when he began to teach the CompTIA A+, Network+ and Security+ classes. Chuck seems to have a heart for the new student who is just starting the significant task of passing IT exams. He remembers when he was at that same beginning point, but after 27 years in the industry, he still gets a "kick" when he helps someone pass their first IT exam.
