    Microsoft IT Academy?

    Are there any sites out there signed up and running any courses under the Microsoft IT Academy banner that can share some further info or experiences?
    I've been looking at the scheme as it looks like it would be great means of offering both IT support staff internally some CPD (Microsoft IT Professional certification pack) as well as staff and potentially students if i could get IT teaching staff interested with the Microsoft Office Specialist and Microsoft Technology Associate qualifications, all at quite a reasonable price.. However i cant seem to get much information from resellers about exactly what you get access to in the UK in particular i.e. if you sign up to each pack do you get access to all the training material / teaching packs required to deliver each qualification in house? Can you administer all the microsoft tests onsite etc?

    In a nutshell, yes you do. It has been a couple of years since I used it but my colleague still uses it for teaching his apprentices.

    He gets all the study books (essentially the electronic copies of the big study books) plus online activities and now virtual desktops to practice in live environments.

    You can do the tests onsite but there are some extensive hoops to go through, if you think you become a Microsoft Certification Test Centre. On the plus you can make money (small change) to administer tests for external adults!
