Course Information

About this course:

The MTA certification is the newest addition in Microsoft’s range of technology certification exams, which enables individuals to start a career with the fundamental knowledge of Microsoft Technologies.

This exam offers an entry point for a career in technology and expects some hands-on experience of Microsoft, but it does not expect a corporate experience.

Short quizzes at the end of sections offer an opportunity for self-assessment for the lesson learned in a specific section.  

Skills measured:

  • Understanding network infrastructures (30–35%)
  • Understanding network hardware (20–25%)
  • Understanding protocols and services (45-50%)

Note: the exam evaluates you on the aforementioned skills. The percentage in front represents the weightage that each task hold. The exam will have 50% questions from protocols and services, 35% of questions from network infrastructure, and 25% questions from network hardware.


MTA certification is an excellent source to use as an entry point for IT careers and to develop a deep understanding of basics.

According to a report by Microsoft, almost 86% of managers said that they consider IT certifications while hiring and interviewing potential candidates and 91% of them said that certification is of paramount importance. 64% of the managers consider certifications to be a validation of a candidate’s skills. They all agree that certifications, experience, and training are all essential to secure a good position.
