Course: Microsoft MTA

What is an MTA Qualification?

An MTA (Microsoft Technical Associate) is a new entry level qualification from Microsoft that allows those new to the IT industry to get into the sector from the level of a complete beginner. If you have an interest, but lack understanding, of buzzwords like Windows Operating System, Windows Server, SQL, Databases or programming then an MTA certification is the best way for you to get your foot in the door and boost your base knowledge of technical subjects.

Whatever area of IT that you are looking to grow into an MTA can unlock the door and will ensure that employers and colleagues know that you have the fundamental skills to excel in a relevant position in the IT industry. Those who strive to complete an MTA may have some experience using computers as an end user but do not know how to delve further into the technical aspects of computing.

Take the first steps on the path to becoming a technical specialist by completing an MTA certification, which will give you the building blocks to complete more advanced qualifications like an MCSA or an MCSE.
