STUDENT AT KASHI INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY, VARANASI, INDIA
I am a final year computer science and engineering student and MTA certification helped me in developing a new perspective for solving application development problems by enhancing my development skills.
I would recommend MTA certification to every student involved in application development because it enhances your development skills and provides you with a valuable certification to evidence your skills.
STUDENT AT INSTITUTE OF ENGINEERING AND MANAGEMENT
I was given a priority over other people due to my MTA certification and thus was among the first to bag a job during my campus placements. This is the first thing that interviewers saw, and then I made the interview sway in my direction. For the future, MTA will help me quickly get used to working with people who are the best in this field.
I would absolutely recommend MTA. The simple reason being “WHY NOT?” Opportunities come and go in life. MTA is definitely one of them. MTA would help my friends get better job prospects. It would help co-workers get used to the current flow of work. MTA would also help family members understand the wonders of Microsoft.

I thought it would be important to learn about operating systems before learning about software development. Passing the MTA OS certification exam has given me a great foundation to build on. I am already coding in C# and Java, and this gives me a better starting knowledge for the MTA Software Development Exam. My long term goal is to get my computer science and software engineering degree.
I would recommend taking this course because it gives you a good starting foundation.

Within a month of getting these two certifications I was able to obtain employment paying 35% more than I was making. I went from working at a software company that sold backup and disaster recovery software, to one of the leading SASS companies, inContact. I work as a NOC (network operations control) engineer.
I believe that these certifications were one of the key factors in me getting the new job. At the very least they got my foot in the door.
I would recommend a certification to anyone who is trying to get their foot in the door for entry-level positions in IT. A lot of times these basic certifications get you past the first phase of them looking through your resume.

My MTA certification has helped demonstrate to my superiors my ability to understand the whole picture regarding our network monitoring suite – I recently was sent to San Francisco to complete Tier I support-level training with our network monitoring software vendor and now am able to function as a local support contact for this software suite at our Pittsburgh corporate headquarters. I would recommend MTA- outside of work-related or assigned projects, a certification in a particular field, language, technology, etc. is the best method of showing one’s skill and worth to decision-makers.

The MTA certifications that I earned opened doors for me when I was entering the job market. Without these Microsoft certifications I would have had a harder time finding employment. I gained knowledge that I could apply immediately to my job as I studied for each exam. These certifications helped me build a solid foundation of fundamentals for developing and working with Windows on a professional level that I would not have gained otherwise.
I would recommend MTA certifications to anyone – studying for the exams alone will help understand the fundamentals of the Microsoft environment.
I think MTA has been great! It’s wonderful for my CV and will help me get better jobs.
I would recommend MTA because owning this certificate is the best thing.
