What is "Microsoft Certified Trainer Instructional Skills Certification" RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    One of the possible MCT program entry requirements is the "Microsoft Certified Trainer Instructional Skills Certification".

    Is this an official Microsoft Course and does it include an exam?

    A few years ago I attended the "Train the Trainer" course run by a specialized company at the CPLS where I worked.

    Does this qualify as a "Microsoft Certified Trainer Instructional Skills Certification" ?

    Thanks,

    SK

  • Yes, that means you need to have completed and passed a Train the Trainer (TTT) course.

  • Thanks, however when I submitted my "Train the Trainer" certificate Microsoft rejected it.

    Could someone from Microsoft please upload what are supported "Microsoft Certified Trainer Instructional Skills Certification" documents?

    Thanks,

  • When I started at a CTech (CPLS) in the late 1990s, the CTech used an official company for the ""Train the Trainer" course for all their instructors (Microsoft, Novell, etc).

  • Well, thats what I am trying to work out. The Comptia and IACMT are official courses & exams.

    So is the "MCT Instructional Skills Certificate" an official Microsoft course followed by an exam too?

  • From time to time, Microsoft has an yearly event where it is call "Train-the-Trainer" where you attend this event. Prepare yourself with a 10 minutes presentation while someone will validate you to see if you meet the requirements to be a Certified Trainer delivering Microsoft Official Curriculum.

  • Thanks, the locations in that URL are few...but anyway, if that is what is meant by "MCT Instructional Skills Certificate", it would be great if the MCT requirements page is updated.

    Thanks.
