Microsoft Jump Start - Learn, compete and get certified


By 


Technology is fast and it never stops evolving, so if you want to stay ahead of the curve and be successful, you must keep on learning. Microsoft supports continuous learning through the Microsoft Virtual Academy (MVA). It offers free online training and self-study material for hundreds of courses, in 11 languages. MVA’s mission statement is “to help developers, knowledgeable IT professionals and advanced students learn the latest technology, build their skills, and advance their careers.”

As an MVA member you will be earning points for your learning and achieving different levels of badges and status, whilst competing with other learners. However, if you want to use your personal learning goals as a benchmark, you can also do that with your dashboard, which helps you to track your progress.

Kick-start getting your MCSD with Jump Start         
      
To maximise your online learning experience, MVA delivers a series of live events, including Jump Start training and MVA Live Q&A sessions, where you can interact with experts, and an audience of fellow students from around the globe.

If you are passionate about coding and building apps or you’re interested in managing projects using Microsoft Visual Studios 2012 products, we have great news for you. With MVA you can now start preparing to get the following certifications:

Building apps is great and now you can get two of the most valuable certifications for coders interested in creating amazing apps using HTML5 or C#. Pick your path and watch the corresponding Jump Start training sessions, with experts taking you through everything you need to know. Once you’ve watched them all, you’re on your right way to pass your exams and get certified.

If your interests are different and you’d rather earn an MCSD in Application LifecycleManagement, Jump Start will help you in that too. Watch the sessions with Anthony Borton and Steven Borg and prepare for passing your exams.
