Life as a Microsoft Certified Trainer

Posted by Rubel Khan on December 14, 2009

If you are thinking of becoming an MCT, check the following blogpost by Tjeerd Veninga from “Born to Learn”:

“You’ve probably heard me share my excitement over the growth in our MCT Community. Right now, there are 16,337 MCTs in 150+ countries.

As the MCT Community Lead, I receive a large number of emails from people who want to know more about our program. So I designed a flyer, called it ‘14,000 reasons to become an MCT’ (and ended up updating the flyer’s title 3 months later, and now need to do that again ).

If you are considering joining the MCT Community, you will find that flyer and a full program overview here. MCTs need to meet some requirements; you need to be Microsoft Certified, you need to have proven presentation skills. We then offer a wide range of benefits; full access to our learning products, free TechNet Plus Direct, a free license to Camtasia Studio and Snagit, etc. And you become part of the worldwide MCT Community; you can share experiences, tips and tricks with MCTs from all over the world. We support MCTs preparing for new technology and new courses through our MCT Readiness program: a library of recorded presentations that help you prepare for new training projects, with new sessions added each month.

Many new MCTs, many new benefits, so we ran an MCT readiness session for new MCTs to talk new MCTs through the program. This was presented by MCT Christopher Harrison, the session has greatly helped new MCTs get the most out of the program. If you are considering joining the MCT Program, why not take a look at this recording?

Things every new MCT should know (but is afraid to ask) was recorded in September – hearing Christopher refer to 15K MCTs makes me realize how fast our numbers have grown this year.”
