Why Become an MCT?

Currently, there is a world wide shortage of MCTs.  This, coupled with the demand for Azure and Cloud training, means there has never been a better time to train.  Demand is significantly high and with 85% of businesses are expected by 2022 means there's a huge opportunity for training and for you to distinguish yourself as an MCT!


“For me being part of the “community” transcends any of the “on paper” benefits of the MCT program… for me the community is by far is the most valuable benefit. Through this community I have not only gained new skills and increased business opportunities. But also have made real friends from all over the world. Where else can you sit around a table with trainers from 20 or 30 different countries and know that your thoughts can influence the programme or have an impact on the outcome of a Microsoft product.”
