Microsoft is expanding its technology certification options to include offering tests for non-IT majored students so they may receive a Microsoft Technology Associate (MTA) certification.

The Microsoft Technology Associate (MTA) certification helps schools teach and validate fundamental technology knowledge, provides students with a foundation for their careers, and helps them gain the confidence they need to succeed in advanced studies. Help your institution stand out with an innovative technology curriculum while offering students an opportunity to earn a Microsoft Certification right in the classroom.

The IT certifications test students for their knowledge of networking, security, and Windows server fundamentals, while the development certifications cover software, Windows, and Web development fundamentals. Finally, the database certification test deals with database administration fundamentals.

To participate in the MTA program, colleges must be members of the Microsoft IT Academy. If your school is not already an MTA testing center, a faculty member or administrator can contact a Certiport sales consultant to learn how to obtain an MTA Campus License.
