  • Technology is everywhere, in every industry – banking, medicine, automotive, high-tech.Because MTA validates knowledge of fundamental technology concepts, it is appropriate for any industry.Candidates with MTA certification differentiate themselves from candidates without the certification, and show that they have aptitude to understand technology.Students with an MTA certification demonstrate a foundational knowledge of technology and may be ready for internships, apprenticeships, or entry-level jobs in technology where additional training and hands on experience will be provided.

  • Although we refer to MTA as an optional starting point, for entry-level candidates the path begins with MTA.The bar for MCSA is high and many new entrants see this high bar as a barrier and get discouraged. MTA is a way for them to get their feet wet and to build confidence and work toward additional Microsoft certifications.
  • MTA exams can be taught and delivered in any order. However, we do that they are delivered as part of a path.Start with the basics:For IT Pro, start with Networking and Security before moving to OS and ServerFor Dev, start with Software Dev Fundamentals before moving to HTML5, .NET, Web Dev, etc.
  • This roadmap shows more detail in how MTA can lead to MCSA and MCSD.
