MTA (Microsoft Technology Associate)

The MTA course and certification is a great place to start. Microsoft considers the MTA certification to be the entry point certification for those of you who are starting your IT career path, looking to enhance your understanding of the fundamentals, or if you are considering a change in your current IT career path. If you think back to when you were a kid, we changed our minds constantly about what we wanted to do when we grew up. Many of us changed our minds constantly through our college years as we started a career path and later decided this was not for us. Well, the MTA is a great way to start down a path that can help you with making that IT career decision.

The MTA certification track also has different paths that you can use to decide what direction you want to take your career. If you enjoy working with hardware and software then the IT Infrastructure track is your first choice. If you are interested in databases there is a database track and if learning software development is your passion there is a development track available as well.
