MCSE or A+ Certification
I am trying to enhance my marketable skills for a IT Project Manager position.
What's the best course I can take to enhance my skills - I have no certifications.

Any certification you can grab - do it.
But in your example, you're asking between MCSE and A+, Please note that the A+ is an entry level certification, while the MCSE is the 3rd tier of the Microsoft route for their 2003 and before products.
And the truthful answer is always - it really depends on you. Meaning, anything from CompTIA (The A+, Network+, etc.) is all vendor nuetral. And obviously the MCSE is specifically to the Microsoft world.
If you're looking for project management - CompTIA has a certification based on that criteria:
CompTIA Project+™ Certification
I have no direct experience with that certification - but based on your post - it might be in tune with what you're trying to accomplish.And thus it was spoken by the mighty Uss. And it was so.

Hi.. now IIHT offers you the courses of CCNA, MCSE, A+ with placement assistance.
It will be very helpful to you achieve in this hardware environment. Cisco has appointed IIHT as its Learning Solutions Partner (CLSP). So your certification will be a valid one.

There's also the PMI Project Management certification that you should look into.
I don't know a lot about it except that it covers project management methodologies and processes and paperwork, etc, etc...
Apparently it's a good one to get for a project manager. It's a long and difficult process, there's several exams and projects that have to be done. And it's not cheap apparently.
A few former co-workers got that certification (with the company paying for it) and moved on to greener pastures within 2 or 3 months of getting it. It took them over a year, because you have to do so many project management hours in your job, so its pretty much required that you're already a PM at a company.
