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, 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: windows operating systems, server, and networking. 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.

How does this course bundle work?
 
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 text book, 1 x practice lab, 1 x MeasureUP practice exam, 1 x official 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.
 
 Text Book
 
Each official Microsoft text book will be delivered to you by post. You will receive the first text book upon enrolling on the course and subsequent text books after completing the official exam for the course before. The text books are to be used in conjunction with the practice labs.
 
 Practice Lab
 
The hands-on live practice labs allow you to experience practical application of course concepts in an authentic online environment 24/7, all from the comfort of your home or office. The lab environment allows you to test and apply your skills as you learn. These labs also come with tasks challenging what you have learnt. To learn more about practice labs, click here.
 
 MeasureUP Practice Exam
 
After working your way through each text book and practice labs, you should be ready to start revising for your official exams. To do this, we provide you with MeasureUP practice tests. MeasureUP are the official provider to Microsoft for practice tests. These are the closest experience to the actual exam you’ll be taking. Scroll down to learn more about MeasureUP and the practice tests.
 
 Official Exam
 
Having confidently passed the practice tests, you will be ready to sit the official Microsoft exams – which we will book on your behalf. These are known as an ‘online, web-proctored exams’. This means they can be taken at home. One of the requirements of taking these exams is that you must have a web camera so a proctor can observe you during the exams. This is to ensure no cheating takes place.
 
How long will it take me to complete each course?

This is dependent on several factors such as your level of experience of the subject matter, the amount of time you can dedicate to the course each week, and how quickly you absorb information. Learners can finish a single course from anywhere between 1-3 months. You will have full access to the resources for 12 months and must take your exams within this period.

 
What do I need?
 
As explained above, an element of the course is delivered via text book. The remainder is online with 24/7 access. You can do it from any where in the world, any time of the day providing you have an internet connection. No apps are required to access the course resources. You simply do it from your browser. For the best user experience, we recommend Google Chrome.
