Certiport

Microsoft Technology Associate

Welcome to the MTA Test Fest site!

An MTA Test Fest is a great way to launch MTA certifications at your institution, remind students of the programs you offer, draw potential students to your campus,
or open and close your semester.

Students value the opportunity to validate knowledge and gain industry-recognized certifications in addition to the credit they may earn from classes within your IT program. Test Fests also let students discover interest and aptitude in a similar discipline draw them to learning opportunities. Instructors see their students' work pay off in a Microsoft Technology Associate certification and also raise visibility for the school's IT offering.

You can host a half-day, full-day or multi-day Test Fest based on your institiution's needs and student' interest. Consider a discounted or free certification(s) to improve attendance and get the most out of your MTA campus license. Certiport is your partner in hosting a successful Test Fest.

We've prepared a number of tools to make this experience simple and fun:

Why MTA?

Three minute video of students, instructors and professionals sharing why MTA makes a difference

  How to Host a Test Fest

Four minute video to guide you through the planning and execution of an MTA Test Fest

  How to Host an Exam Prep

Two minute video to help you prepare your students to take an MTA Exam
