Many of Microsoft’s software and technologies are technically complex, and professionals may require training from knowledgeable trainers in aspects of their use. In order to make such training generally available, Microsoft has developed the Microsoft Certified Trainer (MCT) Program which grants membership to professional trainers and learning consultants who demonstrate and maintain technical and instructional expertise on Microsoft technologies and who have complied with all requirements.
Microsoft Certified Trainer
I am proud to announce that I am now a Microsoft Certified Trainer (MCT). I got the official certification a couple of days ago.
A Microsoft Certified Trainer is a professional trainer, who has been certified by Microsoft as an expert in terms of professional knowledge and with the ability to properly share this knowledge to others. MCTs are considered as the premier instructional and technical experts in all Microsoft technologies and they have the sole authority to deliver training for other Microsoft Certifications. It is great to be finally part of this community and I am looking forward to meeting other MCTs.
Couple of years back, I had an opportunity to review the Microsoft Official Courseware (MOC) 20537: Configuring and Operating a Hybrid Cloud with Microsoft Azure Stack which is part of the MCT instructor-led training delivery. I appreciate all the efforts that are being put on a continuous basis to develop such great content for the official Microsoft MOCs.
How to become an MCT
As a Microsoft Certified Trainer, you need to earn a Microsoft Certification validating your experience and knowledge in using Microsoft products and solutions for each course you deliver, as well as validating your teaching capability.
The Microsoft Certified Trainer program is an annual membership program. You must meet program requirements, complete an online application, and then pay an annual fee to apply/renew your training certification for the coming year.
If you are interested in becoming an MCT, please review the MCT Program Guide and the MCT Program Agreement below to understand the terms of membership.
The MCT program is for educators around the world who actively deliver training on Microsoft technologies. If you possess a qualifying certification and you are passionate about delivering training on Microsoft technologies, then I highly encourage you to consider applying.
