  • Hi.

    You will probably want to become certified in Windows 7 or Windows 8 as a desktop support specialist. There are two titles available:

    MCSA : Windows 7

    MCSA: Windows 8

    If you click one of the links above, it will open a web page that tells you what two exams you need to pass to earn the certification title. You can click an exam to see the details you will need to know to become certified. You will have to study hard using books, online resources, practice, and experience.

    For free training, consider Microsoft Virtual Academy: http://www.microsoftvirtualacademy.com

    Good luck!

  • Usually, the MTA certifications are taken by IT students who want to work towards an MCSA certification.

    These exams are a little easier and do not carry the same respect as MCSA titles. However, they are a great way (a stepping stone) to start getting certified.

    There is a PDF shown on this page that shows the proper path you can take from the MTA exams. Here is the same link from Microsoft: http://download.microsoft.com/download/1/0/9/109AE5B6-BFB5-47DF-98AF-7361A1FDC51A/MTA_CertPaths.pdf
