ADOPT Producer at Eli Lilly with Sensory Technologies
For 17 years, I was doing the same thing, television news. Different companies, but the same job over and over. So I decided to go back to school. Upon earning my MTA certifications, new opportunities have opened up to me. They saw that I was Microsoft Certified and could either add to their company or help improve. This led me to my current position. Inside a Fortune 500 company, offering service to those at board room level couldn’t be any better!
Even though MTA is a stepping stone into the IT industry, it’s a great stepping stone. It adds to your knowledge, yet it’s easy enough for computer literate people to quickly pick up. Don’t get me wrong, I thought I was computer literate before, but after these classes, I found I didn’t even break the surface. Once I earned them, the next level became easier and better to understand.

Finding the Microsoft Technology Associate certifications completely revolutionized the Computer Technician program at the Career and Technical school where I work: Mercy Vocational High School.

Edinburgh, United Kingdom
Within a month of completing my HND (Higher National Diploma) at college, I was in a job doing tech support for Asus. With my call centre experience and computing qualifications, I have been trusted since I can prove my worth with certificates and exam results. I have the opportunity to progress into more complicated roles far more quickly than applying for highly paid roles where they expect you to know everything straight away. I am working at a pace I am comfortable with.
It gives you the edge over other applicants. You can one up other job applicants with your added, proven skills.

I am teaching students in alignment with these exams. Having taken the exams myself, I know what the students can expect. I can also ensure that my teaching materials and methods help them with the exam prep process.
I would recommend them to anyone who needs to demonstrate a basic understanding of the technologies. I accept the certifications as substitutes for some of my courses at the college where I teach. If for no other reason than you can earn 15 quarter hours from me by demonstrating your understanding of the topic with your MTA certifications, you should take them.

My MTA certification helped me to be awarded a very coveted position. I also became a part of an elite group of students who received free training in cryptography and encrypted cloud computing; the knowledge I gained was priceless. I have also been able to use this certification to boost my credibility with large organizations when selling them anti-key logging solutions for Windows enabled systems. Since becoming certified, I realized my career has no limits!
In a technology-crazed world, with more and more people wanting a bite from the “info tech pie” never has it been more necessary to prove your worth and distinguish yourself from the next person. The best way to do so starts with the MTA certification. So, yes I will recommend it to anyone that I care about who lives in the world of information technology without delay!

Leeds, United Kingdom
System Support Consultant
When I was told I could do my MTA certificates at college I thought it would be just another certificate that nobody would care about. In college I achieved BTEC Diplomas, Cisco CCNA certificates and MTA certificates. Then when college was over, I applied for a job as a system support consultant, when I attended the interview I expected the Cisco certificates to be the focus. However the MTA certificate was the center of attention.
I recommend the MTA to all my colleagues, friends and family because having it makes you stand out in the fast moving and ever growing IT industry. Microsoft is the biggest name in computing and having the paper to prove you meet Microsoft standards is a real benefit. I’m able to state that I’m a Microsoft professional and employers and clients have confidence in me and the work I do.
Microsoft Certified Professional
First of all a BIG THANKS to Microsoft for educating us on new technology i.e. .NET.
It helped in my education by making my final year project successful and making me eligible for getting shortlisted in good companies.
Also, MTA helped me by giving me direction in life to explore the new technology .NET and believing that it will be the new future for all of us.
Yes, I recommended MTA certification to my younger brother and also to four of my friends. MTA certification makes me feel proud that I am also a certified professional of Microsoft.
