How does this course bundle work?
This course bundle is made up of five main resources as shown below. The MTA certification course has as its own set of resources, i.e. 1 x textbook course^, 1 x practice lab, 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. Once you have passed the Microsoft exam, you will receive an MTA certification from Microsoft (you have until the 30th June 2022 to take your exam).
