Covering networking, security, and software development, each three-day course prepares students for a single MTA certification exam:
- Students in MTA: Networking Fundamentals will gain a working knowledge of networking terminology, hardware, and protocols while preparing for Exam 98-366.
- In MTA: Security Fundamentals, students will prepare for Exam 98-367 and gain an understanding of the core enterprise security technologies and principles.
- While preparing for Exam 98-361, students in MTA: Software Development Fundamentals will learn how desktop and web applications are developed and the programming logic behind them.
Previously available only to the academic market, the popular MTA certification program provides essential technology training on IT infrastructure, database design, and software development to those just starting a career in IT or those who want to enhance their understanding of IT fundamentals.
"As we head into a new year, we and our Learning Partners are excited to bring MTA to the market. MTA is a great onramp for those entering the technology workforce as well as for business professionals who want to differentiate themselves, contribute to business and technology decisions in a more meaningful way, and raise their value within their current organization," commented Don Field, Senior Director, Microsoft Learning.
"Cloud computing is definitely changing job roles within organizations, and business and IT professionals now require more knowledge of the underlying technology that runs their businesses," explained Michael Fox, Global Knowledge Senior Vice President, Enterprise Solutions and Product Management.
