  • Question

  • Hi!

    My name is Kristian, an IT-employee from Norway.

    I Work at for small company in Trondheim, Norway and I have some questions about certifications that I hope you can answer.

    I want to get a certificate in Windows Server 2012, 2008, Windows 7 and/or 8 and some SQL-databases. But my certification office is about 50miles away from my city which means that I can't go there for 5 days.

    With that in mind I thought about taking the courses online, is that a possibility for us europeans/norwegians? Is there any links or answers for this.

    Thanks in advanced

    - Kristian Bendiksen

  • I am sorry for the confusion.

    You cannot earn any Microsoft certification (including MCSE) by taking any local or online training course.

    You can only earn an MCSE title by registering, purchasing, sitting, and passing the required electronic exams at a Prometric testing center.

    There are sixteen (16) Prometric testing centers in Norway. The exam price is 99.00 GBP, whether you pass or fail.

    Here are the Prometric Testing centers that I found. There is even one in Trondheim (last one listed). However, you can take your exams at any of them.

  • Hi, Kristian.

    For free online training courses, you may wish to use Microsoft Virtual Academy.

    Please understand that class completion certificates are much different than Microsoft exam certifications. To become Microsoft certified, you will need to purchase and sit one or more exams at a Prometric testing center.

    The MCSE title is usually earned by Windows and SQL Server professionals. Check them out here:

    Good luck!

    so there is no way to take these courses online?

    the prometric testcenters are only for usa. do you have a list of places in norway?
