Microsoft Changes MTA Certification Structure
At the end of January, Microsoft launched a reorganized Microsoft Technology Associate (MTA) certification structure.
Microsoft previously offered three MTA certifications (MTA: Database, MTA: Developer, and MTA: IT Infrastructure), but now all its "tracks" have been organized under a single certification.
Learners can now choose to take any exam from a pool of 13 exams, and upon passing that exam, earn the MTA certification.
The exam pool now includes the following exams:
98-364 Database Fundamentals
98-365 Windows Server Administration Fundamentals
98-366 Networking Fundamentals
98-367 Security Fundamentals
98-368 Mobility and Devices Fundamentals
98-369 Cloud Fundamentals
98-375 HTML5 Application Development Fundamentals
98-380 Introduction to Programming Using Block-Based Languages (Touch Develop)
The exam pool, in addition, includes the following new exams:
98-381 Introduction to Programming Using Python
98-383 Introduction to Programming Using HTML and CSS
There are no prerequisites to sit for any of the exams, but you should be sure to explore Microsoft's exam prep resources along with CBT Nuggets training material.
Once you earn your MTA, you can continue on to earn your MCSA or MCSD on a variety of topics.
This certification restructure from Microsoft makes it that much easier for test takers to have much more versatility in the path they choose to get Microsoft certified. You can get started learning about the new cert reorganization on Microsoft's website and get training through CBT Nuggets.
