6 Steps For Microsoft Certification

  1. Decide which certification is right for you.
    Microsoft offers a wide range of certifications that cover a spectrum of professions within—and outside of—the IT industry. You decide which certification is appropriate and best serves your career goals.

    Business worker: If you use Microsoft Office and Windows Vista at work, or you are looking for a job opportunity that does, consider earning a Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS) certification.

    Technology practitioner: We offer a range of certifications for IT professionals and developers at all skill levels, from entry-level technologists to architects.

  2. Gain hands-on experience with Microsoft technologies.
    If you have one or more years of experience using Microsoft products and solutions in an IT professional or developer role, you might qualify to take an exam to obtain a basic certification.

  3. Train.
    Take advantage of a wealth of training resources that are designed to fit diverse learning styles—everything from study guides and tutorials to hands-on, instructor-led training.

  4. Know what to expect on exams.
    We provide exam preparation guides to help you learn about certifications you earn, training resources (classes, online courses, books, and Web sites), intended audience, and skills measured.
