Microsoft Certification Training

Author : Callum Leslie Walters

If you are looking to boost your career then Microsoft certification could help you. There are several different types available and this guide takes you through what they are and some of the requirements of each one. The Desktop Support certification is one of the most common types of Microsoft certification. There are several variations of this available and it helps prove your competence in computer-related tasks. You'll have to demonstrate your competence in applications such as Word, Excel, Access and more.

Another very popular type of Microsoft certification is the technology certification. There are more than 30 areas that you can choose to study as part of the series in order to gain the Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist recognition. For instance, you might be able to gain certificates in subjects such as Windows Server, SQL Server, .NET framework and SharePoint services. If you are an IT professional who works in troubleshooting and maintaining systems, this will be a good certification for you to have.

You could also go for the Microsoft Professional Certification, of which there are two main types, which are known as the Microsoft Certified IT Professional and the Microsoft Certified Professional Developer. If you choose to do the Professional Developer certificate, you'll work with Visual Studio and the .NET framework to prove your competence. For the IT Professional certificate, you'll have to work with a range of Microsoft technologies. You'll also need to have the Technology certification before you can do the Professional one.

The Master certification is the next Microsoft certification you could get. The aim of it is to prove your expertise in the information technology industry and you will receive training from professional Microsoft staff, usually in the form of a three week training course. You will be asked to look at areas such as the SQL Server, the Office Communications Server and Windows Server. You will be posed with relevant scenarios to test your understanding and abilities in both lab and lecture-based training sessions.

Finally, if you have got many years of experience and are a true expert in your field, you may be able to attain the highest level of Microsoft certification, which is known as the Architect certification. You will need to have lots of experience and to also be in possession of the Master certification before you can become an Architect. You will also have to go through a review board interview and prove competency in a range of areas. You can choose either the Infrastructure Program or the Technology Program.
