Microsoft Certified Trainer 2023-2024 #MCT

4 Min. Read

I am so happy and grateful to share that I am a Microsoft Certified Trainer (MCT) for the fourth year in a row. I received the official confirmation from Microsoft!

Being a Microsoft Certified Trainer is a great honor and I am happy to be part of this large community worldwide.


Microsoft Certified Trainer (MCT) is a professional certification that recognizes individuals who have the skills and expertise to train others on Microsoft technologies and products. MCTs are recognized as experts in their field and are highly respected by both their peers and their clients.

To become a Microsoft Certified Trainer, individuals must first obtain a Microsoft certification in a relevant technology, such as Microsoft Azure, Microsoft 365, or Windows Server. They must also meet certain requirements related to teaching experience, instructional skills, and Microsoft-related work experience.

Once certified, MCTs are authorized to deliver official Microsoft training courses and can use Microsoft Official Courseware (MOC) to do so. MCTs also have access to a range of resources and tools to help them prepare for their training sessions, including instructor-led training (ILT) kits, virtual labs, and other training materials.

Becoming a Microsoft Certified Trainer is a great way to advance your career in the technology industry and share your expertise with others. It also demonstrates your commitment to ongoing professional development and lifelong learning.

Microsoft Certified Trainer

Many of Microsoft’s software and technologies are technically complex, and IT professionals may require training from knowledgeable trainers in aspects of their use.

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 with others. MCTs are considered 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 a part of this community for another year and I am looking forward to meeting other MCTs.

I appreciate all the efforts that are being put into continuing to develop such great content for the official Microsoft Official Courseware (MOCs) and Microsoft Learn.

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 are passionate about delivering training on Microsoft technologies, I highly encourage you to consider applying.

Microsoft Learn Community

Microsoft recently announced a new opportunity for learning Azure and Microsoft 365 with Learn Rooms, a part of the new Microsoft Learn community designed to allow you to connect with other learners and technical experts with similar interests in Azure.

The NEW Microsoft Learning Rooms will assist in your certification journey. You can find connections with peers and engage with experts to dive into topic-specific questions via discussions and virtual sessions.
