Benefits

For IT managers, certification is particularly important because it allows them to more easily identify the skills that an individual possesses. When a company has employees that possess certain skills, it can garner a competitive advantage when seeking to attract customers. Certification can also contribute to increased productivity, because studies have shown that certified individuals are generally quicker to implement and design new technologies. And of course by knowing that their employees are certified, IT managers can feel more confident about their ability to implement and support a network infrastructure.

The IT industry, your employer, clients, and peers will recognize your MCDST credential as a symbol of the skills and knowledge you have gained. Microsoft certification demonstrates that you have the ability to successfully support Microsoft business solutions for your organization or client.

"The Tutor Graham certainly has a wealth of information and experience which he was happy to share it with us. The first couple of days (especially Sunday night) you're not sure what has hit you - but if youre prepared to put in the work youll get a lot out of it. The staff were efficient and the food was excellent."
Sandra Nabbs, TNT. (22/10/2007 (Mandag) til 26/10/2007 (Fredag))

Ahmed Almansoori, Qatar Petroleum. (22/10/2007 (Mandag) til 26/10/2007 (Fredag))

"I think the most important thing is to make a point your very first day to ask lots of questions aloud in class no matter how dumb you may feel asking them - a few people in our group were very silent in class time and they tended to be the ones who had the biggest panic attacks on exam day...Also i cannot stress the importance of bonding with your classmates; this was every bit as important for me as the instructors lessons - the sharing of knowledge and discussions out of hours were vital to spotting our weeknesses and dealing with them..."
Lee Moorton, computerlessons4u.co.uk. (18/6/2007 (Mandag) til 22/6/2007 (Fredag))

"On day one I found it hard to believe that I would be ready to pass two exams within the next few days but it really does work. I will be more than happy to return for more courses."
Theo Tokkallos, ING. (18/6/2007 (Mandag) til 22/6/2007 (Fredag))
