New Role-based training and Training and Certification Announced at Ignite

We are excited to announce lots of changes today. At Ignite, we are unveiling the new strategy for learning at Microsoft. This includes the launching of role-based training and certification! There are several blogs that explain the vision, direction, and announcements. Check them out:

Starting today, you can see the new instructor-led training (ILT) available in the Learning Download Center. The strategy behind the new ILT content is to make it more modular and flexible. We are going to be iterating on this process as we move forward, so please give us your feedback via the Courseware Community Forum on MCT Central. We have prioritized the instructor resources you wanted, with the goal of getting both content and updates out faster. For more background on the changes, check out the July and August MCT Town Halls.

For MCTs, we are rolling out some exciting benefits, including access to all the new role-based online courses that you can use to prepare for certification, along with the just-announced instructor-led training.

You now have a streamlined Certification Dashboard, which includes your personalized certification information, such as your certificates, transcripts, and even access to all your digital badges. MCT Central is now the main place you go for everything MCT related, including discounts, community forums, community events, benefits, the MOC title plan, and MCT Competencies.

This is just the beginning! We’ll further expand the content and experience to help customers learn the skills needed to be successful with Microsoft technologies. And we’ll connect our customers to more ways of learning delivered by you—Microsoft Certified Trainers—and provided by our Microsoft Learning Partners, so people can choose the best learning mode for them.
