Windows Admin Bootcamp

Nine step-by-step courses designed to help you build the skills and experience you need to become a high-paid, in-demand Windows Administrator in record time (even if you don’t have an IT job).


"After being laid off from a company I had been with for over 10 years, I was finding out at 53 it was not so easy to land a job. After many rejections, I decided to up my game and get some more education on networking. I went through Instructor Paul's webinar and was sold that this could help me. I am so glad I signed up for Instructor Paul's 'Windows Admin Bootcamp'. I am almost done and have only modules 8 and 9 left. I am now employed by a company called Scannx. They required Active Directory, Domain Controllers, Network Administration, Windows Server Administration and more. Most of this I learned while taking his modules. Thank God for Instructor Paul giving these lectures at such a low cost." ~ Jason Jacklich

Life as a System Administrator is pretty dang good!

In fact, it's been hands-down one of the best career moves I’ve ever made.

And as others can attest, it’s a career path that offers the potential for great pay, flexibility, and upward mobility.

There’s just one problem.

If you don’t have an IT job yet, all of the entry-level positions you want to apply for require 3-5 years of experience…

If you do have an IT job, getting a better job or a promotion generally requires skills and experience outside of your current domain of expertise…

And in both cases, because you don’t have the job you want yet, there aren’t any opportunities outside of that job to learn those skills and build that experience.

You don’t have the experience to get the job.

But you can’t get the experience without the job.


windows admin bootcamp catch22

This, my friend, is what I call The IT Catch-22.

And it’s what prevents thousands of otherwise passionate and qualified IT enthusiasts like you from getting that first job, or moving up the chain into the job you really want.

You want the added responsibility.

You want to be able to analyze and troubleshoot complicated problems.

You want the great pay, the ability to work from home and to finally become the #1 go-to expert at your company.

But because of this Catch-22, you’re stuck...

And as a result, a lot of folks in your shoes end up resigning themselves to the job they're in, just punching the clock to pay the bills.

I see it all the time.

People who have six or seven years of experience in an entry-level administration role, and all they’ve done is configure Active Directory users and computers... and maybe establish some Group Policy objects.

That’s it!

In seven years!

That should never, ever happen.

But it’s all too easy when you don’t have a clear path forward to getting the skills and experience you need to branch out and land better and better roles within the industry.

It’s Time To Short-Circuit The Catch-22

What if there was no Catch-22?

What if you didn’t have to “get lucky” to land your dream job?

And what if you could do it on your own time, away from work, in the comfort of our own home?

paul hillHi, I'm Paul. And for 10 years now I’ve been a System Administrator for some of the top defense contractors and U.S. government agencies.

I've also been teaching IT skills online for the past four years, and have had over 130,000 students in all 195 countries.

As it turns out, there’s actually an understandable set of steps to learning System Administration for Windows, which can quickly take you from n00b to expert...

WITHOUT having to spend all of your time scrolling through forum after forum, or slaving away as a lowly temp to “get your foot in the door.”

In fact, even if you don’t have a degree...

If you follow the learning process that I followed, you’ll be wayyyy ahead of most college grads when it comes to landing an IT job in the Windows world.

Jobs that not only pay well but are pretty dang cool!

Here’s the bottom line:

Getting hands-on experience actually doing the work is really, really valuable.

In fact, I got my first three jobs without an IT degree, just because I did what this bootcamp will show you.

I created my own hands-on experience, and I can tell you that there is a path to an IT job you can hang your hat on.

One that gives you the freedom to learn and get better at your job.

One that gives you the pay and recognition you’ve always wanted for doing a great job.

And one that gives you the foundation for a long and secure career as a Windows System Admin who can pick and choose where and who you want to work for.

That’s exactly why I built...

Windows Admin Bootcamp

Windows Admin Bootcamp is your answer to the IT Catch 22 problem. And it’s the best possible way to get the hands-on experience you need… without the downside.

Using a Virtual IT Lab to learn at home...

This step-by-step set of courses cover the most in-demand windows skills you’ll need to be fully prepared to nail an interview, land a promotion, and set yourself up for a great career.

But Windows Admin Bootcamp is specifically designed to help folks like you who are looking to build a career around the Windows platform.

It’s the most commonly used platform among large businesses in the US and, in my opinion, one of the quickest and most reliable paths to a great long-term stable career.

There’s always more to learn and there’s also always the opportunity to step up into a new role or larger company.


No more slogging through 600-page Microsoft manuals, or spending all night on forums Googling how to properly reset reverse DNS zones.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why not just learn on Youtube, Udemy, or the hundreds of other options available online?

Short answer: you should!

But keep in mind, when you learn from me, you're not only learning from someone who's just in the classroom and teaches theory, like a lot of colleges are some even a cert prep, you know, certification, prep courses, things like that.

Not only am I an instructor, but I also work in the IT field full time as a senior system administrator.

So I work a full time nine to five type job and then I come home and I create course content. The reason why that's important is that you're going to be learning from someone who actually is doing it from day to day working out.

How is this different than just getting my Microsoft Certs?

You may decide to go out and get a certificate or two… and that’s great!

But when you get to the interview, and the hiring manager asks about your experience actually installing or administering Windows Server…

All you can do is say “no,” along with the hundreds of other nameless, faceless candidates out there who have the same exact certification.

In our world, they’re a dime a dozen.

Direct, hands-on experience, on the other hand…

Now that’s something that will raise some serious eyebrows!

Don’t I need to get an internship first?

No. Any practical IT experience is good, but definitely not a requirement.

Do I need to also have a college degree?

College spends a lot of time teaching theory while the Windows Admin Bootcamp focuses on the skills that are not taught in college (building and administering a Windows Network). A degree is a great addition to your resume when you combine it with any practical experience like what you will get in the Windows Admin Bootcamp!

Will this help me land a Windows Admin position?

Now, yes there’s more to landing your IT dream job than just showing that you can set up a new server and clone a few virtual machines.

You need to have a strong network.

You need to be in conversations with recruiters at companies you admire.

And you need to be comfortable and confident enough to speak with hiring managers for positions that might seems slightly out of your comfort zone.

But none of that works if you don't have the experience and confidence to do the work.

And Windows Admin Bootcamp is designed to get you there in the shortest possible period of time.

What I’ve done is pull together all of the top skills you’ll need to demonstrate that competence and do your job like a pro…

And put them into an easy-to-learn format that you can go through on your own schedule… away from the hectic firefighting at work, fully on your own time so that you can focus and work on mastering your knowledge of these key areas of competence.

In the next 30 days...

What steps are you going to take to move your career forward?

Are you going to resign yourself to the status quo: “It is what it is, right?”

Or are you going to take concrete steps towards a productive, lucrative, and exciting career as an expert Windows Admin?

Regardless of what you decide, I encourage you to take that first step.

And if Windows Admin Bootcamp is that first step, what better time than now?
