There was also a much needed, never ending supply, of coffee.

I chose the Dynamics CRM course with Firebrand because it was recommended to me internally at Microsoft by a number of people."

What are the benefits of certification?

Individuals

  • Overwhelmingly, individuals with Microsoft certifications have an advanced level of knowledge, expertise and skill, and command more professional credibility
  • Individual students may receive college credits to utilise tuition reimbursement programs for their IT training, or to complete college coursework

Human Resources

  • Employer-funded training and certification programs are a key to retaining skilled staff. Career development and advancement opportunities are shown to significantly reduce rates of employee turnover
  • Certification training programs provide benchmarks for hiring and promotion decisions by accurately assessing technical skills
  • Certification training programs maximise educational investments through immediate validation of skills
  • For HR 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

Microsoft certification affords special membership benefits:

  • Technical information, product information and exclusive discounts on products and services through a secured section of the Microsoft website
  • Microsoft logos and certificate for your personal promotion to clients or potential employers
  • Invitations to Microsoft conferences and other educational opportunities
  • Access to the secure Microsoft Certified Professional Magazine Online website

Other accelerated training providers rely heavily on lecture and independent self-testing and study.

  • Intensive group instruction
  • One-on-one instruction attention
