Oceanside, CA, United States
The MTA exam for software testing fundamentals was a big first of many steps for me into the world of IT. I currently work as a Tactical Data Systems Administrator as an active duty United States Marine. Part of my job is to test software before it fielded to the fleet Marine Corps. As a current student of the Microsoft Software Systems Academy, this certification has opened up opportunity for my future. I have an interview with Microsoft next month.
I would absolutely recommend and have recommended the Microsoft Technical Associate exam series to almost every co-worker I have. I am a huge advocate of continuing education at any age. Taking this exam has opened up doors for me and I hope for my fellow Marines that it does the same for them. I would very much love for them to succeed just as this exam process has assisted me in reaching for my goals. If they do well, I feel like I helped impact them.
IT Support Specialist
I have always being involved with computers but I never had the paperwork to prove it and the Armed Services don’t give diplomas. Now, at the young age of 54 and retired from the Service, I went back to college and am in the process of receiving what I always wanted. I am also in the process of setting up my own business in cloud based management for wholesale/retail outlets.
Why would I recommend MTA Certification? Because it was my first step on that ladder to prove my ability to succeed and to prove to others that you are never to old to start.
Decherd, Tennessee, United States
I completed the Security Fundamentals MTA certification after completing a Security+ course and reinforced my confidence in my ability to adequately secure a computer system. I also completed the MTA cert for Windows® Operating System Fundamentals only halfway through my training course. Obtaining both of these certifications show determination to excel in the emerging IT field. I know having these and other MTA certifications will increase my marketability.
I would highly recommend any IT technician interested in being certified to complete the MTA certs. Completing an MTA cert helps prepare you for additional certifications. They are a good stepping-stone to build on. They also provide a good assessment of your understanding of the fundamentals of the aspects of different IT areas of expertise.
