This school year (2013-2014), we are looking at Microsoft’s MTA Certification Exams as the primary option for Computer Science Seniors to use for their credentials to show off their CS / IT Knowledge.
There are several MTA Exams offered by Microsoft’s IT Academy. These include Exams covering …
- Windows Operating System Fundamentals
- Networking Fundamentals
- Security Fundamentals
- Database Administration
- Software Development
- Web Development
- Mobile Development
- Gaming Development
- Several Other Microsoft-based areas
LHS Computer Science Completers will be qualified to take the Operating System Fundamentals exam. As time allows in the curriculum, we will also be covering several areas covered by Networking Fundamentals and Security Fundamentals Exams. Although some additional self-study will be recommended for students who wish to take the Networking and Security MTA Exams.
As we approach the Spring of 2014, more details will be given about the test date, location, and cost. We are working on minimizing the costs for students in order to encourage as many as possible to set a MTA Certification as one of their goals.
