Description

The Microsoft Technology Associate (MTA) is an entry-level certification aimed at individuals looking to gain their first professional Microsoft certification. MTA certification areas cover a variety of technologies such as windows operating systems, server, networking, security, database administration, software development, mobility and devices, cloud, and HMTL application development. All of which are taught at a fundamental level.
 
The MTA validates fundamental technology skills and knowledge among learners and job-seekers who are pursuing a career in technology. MTA addresses a wide range of critical technology concepts with exams that are designed to assess and validate core technical concepts in three primary areas: Developer, Database, and IT Professional.
 

An example of an MTA certification you can gain through this course bundle.

 

The MTA is normally the starting point to progress onto more advanced Microsoft certifications such as the Microsoft Certified Solutions Associate (MCSA), Microsoft Certified Solutions Expert (MCSE), and Microsoft Certified Solutions Developer (MCSD). This bundle gives individuals an opportunity to explore and certify in three areas: Mobility and Devices, Security, and Cloud. Prospective students may already be working in an IT capacity and are looking to advance their career or wish to better understand key technologies within their company.

 

           

 

Upon completion of this course, you’ll receive three Microsoft MTA ‘Acclaim’ badges that you can add to your CV or social media profile for prospective employers to see. You’ll also receive a Microsoft MTA certification for each technology track.

This course bundle is made up of four main resources as shown below. Each certification course has as its own set of resources, i.e. 1 x textbook, 1 x practice lab (excluding 98-368, and 98-369), 1 x MeasureUP practice exam, 1 x official Microsoft exam. Each resource is designed to work in conjunction with each other to ensure the successful path to certification. You will complete one course and exam, then repeat the process for the remaining courses. Once you have passed the exams, you will receive three MTA certifications from Microsoft. Read below to learn more about the resources that make up this course.
 
 Textbook
Each official Microsoft textbook will be delivered to you online. These can be accessed from any device.
