Microsoft Certified Trainer (MCT)

Just thought I would put together a quick post regarding the MCT accreditation and what this means for someone looking to obtain this.

I was fortunate to have met the application criteria and have been privileged to receive this award this week.

Full details of the award can be found here: Become a Microsoft Certified Trainer | Microsoft Docs

The long and short of it is that currently Microsoft are waiving the application fee which is usually around £600 per year. This waiver is in place having recently been extended until June 2021.
