Get Ready for the Cloud: Training and Certification Offerings from Microsoft

Business is moving to the cloud. According to IDC predictions for 2011, 80 percent of new software will be available as cloud services; by 2014, more than one-third of software purchases will be delivered through the cloud.* To keep pace with their customers and employers, most IT professionals and developers will require additional skills. If you’re ready for the challenge, Microsoft is ready to help. Our new training courses will help you acquire the skills you need for success, and our new certifications will help you prove your knowledge and skills to employers and customers.

Available certifications include the new Microsoft Certified Professional Developer (MCPD): Windows Azure Developer and Microsoft Certified IT Professional (MCITP): Virtualization Administrator. With Windows Azure, the technology and how it is used will change frequently. To address this issue, candidates who earn this certification must take a recertification exam every two years in order to maintain it.
