Microsoft IT Academy

Become a member

There are two ways to become an IT Academy member.

Purchase through Volume Licensing

You can easily add a Microsoft IT Academy subscription and Microsoft Certifications through your EES, OV-ES, or Select agreements. When you purchase IT Academy with certifications you get a complete technology education solution to help train and certify your students. You can order exam class and site packs that put students on the path to earning a Microsoft Certification – including Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS), Microsoft Technology Associate (MTA), and Microsoft Certified Professional (MCP) certifications. Certification exam class and site packs include a specific number of exam vouchers that you can use over the course of one year. Whether for a high school, two-year college, or four-year college, you can tailor a mix of certifications to meet your students' needs:

  • Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS) Site Pack = up to 500 exam vouchers per site pack
  • Microsoft Technology Associate (MTA) Site Pack = up to 250 exam vouchers per site pack
  • Microsoft Certified Professional (MCP) Class Pack= up to 30 exam vouchers per class pack

For more information about these Volume Licensing options, contact your Authorized Education Reseller or visit the licensing options for academic institutions page.

If you do not have a volume licensing agreement, learn more about Microsoft Volume Licensing. Academic Volume Licensing programs put Microsoft software in the hands of educators and students so they can interact, collaborate, and learn. In addition, you can easily add Microsoft IT Academy and certification to your volume licensing agreement.
