Microsoft Certified Trainers meet stringent certification requirements. They also receive many valuable benefits, including free access to the complete library of Produtos de Aprendizado Oficiais da Microsoft; substantial discounts on exams, books, and Microsoft products; members-only newsgroups and online community resources; and invitations to exclusive events and programs.
MCT certification requires an annual renewal. Each April, MCTs must complete an online application, pay an annual fee, and meet a number of program requirements to renew their certification for the coming year.
Microsoft Certified Learning Consultant
The Microsoft Certified Learning Consultant (MCLC) credential recognizes MCTs who have frequent consultations with their customers. Their role is more that of a technology trainer—they diagnose current and desired business performance and design learning solutions to bridge the gap.
A candidate who earns the MCLC credential has a set of skills that align with the consultative selling cycle. During the application process, candidates must submit a case study that demonstrates their qualifications in four key competencies: assessment, design, development, and evaluation.
Assessment: The MCLC candidate evaluates the customer's overall learning requirements, business objectives, desired results, and constraints, and conducts a skills assessment to identify specific training needs.
Design: Following a thorough assessment, the MCLC candidate designs a customized learning solution, which may be a blend of classroom courses, e-learning materials, and reference books.
Development: After the design has been accepted, the MCLC candidate develops and implements a customized solution—a process that requires both technical and training expertise.
Evaluation: Throughout the project and upon completion, the MCLC candidate works with the customer to evaluate the effectiveness of the solution and to calculate the return on investment (ROI).
