  • Hi Patricia,

    You can only take MCT's for qualifying certifications. These can be found here:

    That having been said, most people don't have an excel certification. Just having your MCAS in its own right will put you in good stead for getting a position training people to use excel (well, thats my take on it anyway).

    Hope this helps!

  • MS calls them "Microsoft Certified Trainers".  Program requirements can be found here: http://www.microsoft.com/learning/mcp/mct/guide/default.mspx

  • I am almost sure that you do not need to be an MCT (Microsoft Certified Trainer) to teach MS Excel.
