[EN] Welcome Back MCT!

The beginning of April. Every year since April 2011. Still don’t understand why I have to renew my MCT status on every April if I passed my MCT Exam in July 2010, but.. I always do it in the last possible moment.


This year everything was the same. Almost. I just been surprised about increasing price for renewing my status. Of cours – for all ‘well informed folks’ – I should be prepared, because informations about increasing prices has been publisher over year ago, but… as human nature we are always surprise in the time of payment. Anyway, I just make bank transfer payment and got really nice message in my xobni (yes i missed fantastic xobni stuff).

First and most important advantage from this progmar for me is right to provide trainings with Microsoft Official Course and in some countries other courses – because Microsoft Certified Trainer status is equivalent for some other trainers/teachers programs. And it’s really cool! Other advantages are still really cool. My newest just for MCTs:

  • Access to the MCT Member site. The MCT member site offers exclusive program information, access to the Microsoft Learning Download Center, digitized logos for download, and many other benefits and special offers. It also gives you the ability to update your personal information and print or share your transcript. ||
  • Access to content. You have access to our full library of courseware through the Microsoft Learning Download Center and the Courseware Marketplace. ||
  • Connect with the MCT Community MCT Central is a dedicated hub designed to help you succeed as a MCT including tools to support you: acquiring knowledge, getting prepared, staying current and engaging with the community. ||
  • Reach out to your Regional Leads They represent a group of active and experienced trainers around the world. We encourage you to reach out to the Regional Lead in your area by accessing the Regional Lead map on MCT Central.
  • my Welcome Kit  that identifies you as a MCT Program member. You can customize your MCT Welcome Kit by selecting items you’d like to include. ||

But mycoolest and most powerfull benefits are allittle different than resources above. I got yearly free subscriptions for:

  • Software downloads | Over 11 terabytes of Microsoft Products are available for my any test, check, play, install, destroy projects
  • Microsoft Azure Free Subscription | up to 100 USD monthly for playng with Microsoft Azure stuff {virtual machines, sql databases, websites , hadoop, mobile push, media streaming, active directory, everything else…}
  • Microsoft Office 365 Enterprise | One year free trial subscription for Microsoft Offfice 365 subscription on Enterprise E3 level {mail, calendar, people, newsfeed, onedrive, sharepoint online, taksk, delve, word-excel-powerpoint-onenote online}

Anyway. Welcome back to Microsoft Certified Trainer Program is a fact. Now it’s time for planning some trainings!
