Metrics That Matter

Metrics That Matter

Metrics that Matter (MTM) is a learning analytics and measurement tool with an online system that automates the process of collecting and analyzing feedback from learners. MTM provides Microsoft Certified Trainers (MCT) with a practical, scalable and repeatable way to maintain high customer satisfaction through class evaluations and student feedback, and can guide you in achieving optimal trainer performance.
Microsoft requires that all Microsoft Certified Trainers use Metrics that Matter surveys for all of their Microsoft courseware deliveries. To comply with the MCT Program requirements, you must implement and use MTM surveys to collect student evaluations. Please note that MTM will also be used for MCT Membership renewals.
The upcoming MTM 8.1 release will be available to you as of October 18, 2020. We are hosting two MTM 8.1 Release Q&A Webinars on October 19 and October 22. Join us to learn more about the enhancements to MTM and ask any questions you may have.

Extending Waiver of MCT Program Fee

On April 1st of this year we announced that as a response to the emerging worldwide pandemic the MCT Program fee would be waived through September 30, 2020. After further assessment of the worldwide situation, we have extended the fee waiver until December 31, 2020. You will still need to renew through the MCT Enrollment tool, but once you get to the payment process, the amount due will be zero. This action is being taken to support our active and engaged community of Microsoft Certified Trainers.

Changes to the Microsoft Certification Program

We’re excited to share upcoming changes to our certification program. We are releasing a new Microsoft Learn feature that enables role-based and specialty certification holders the ability to renew their certification. Individuals with certifications expiring within six months will have the ability to pass an assessment on Microsoft Learn for free, extending their certification expiration date by another year. Updates to the renewal assessments are aligned with updates made to the certification exam, and learners must pass the assessment before their certification expires to renew.

Learners can continue to keep their certification active by renewing it on an annual basis. Holding an active certification helps validate skills and knowledge are current with the latest technology updates – especially important for tech professionals and employers given the speed at which technology evolves. We believe this approach and our continued investments will provide learners the opportunity to focus on continuous learning to stay at the forefront of meeting demand in a digital and cloud world, while reducing complexity, cost, and stress in keeping certifications current. These changes are scheduled for an early 2021 release. Please stay tuned for updates on when we plan to publicly announce, along with additional information on the feature release on Microsoft Learn.
