Certification Mentoring Partnership Launches

Deanna (Microsoft)

After talking to customers, New Horizons found that many customers get busy in the days and weeks right after taking their training classes, and by the time they are free to go sit for a certification exam, they are worried that have forgotten much of the information they need to pass the exam. 


To help remedy this, New Horizons is working with Microsoft to provide free mentoring sessions to any student (does not matter if they took their training from New Horizons) to refresh their knowledge before taking the certification exams. 


What it is:

  • Delivered by Microsoft Certified Trainers
  • Sessions are delivered as webcasts
  • Reviews the top technical issues that correspond to the questions that are most often missed on the certification exams

What it is not:

  • This is not a free training class, but an opportunity for students who have already taken training, and want to make sure they are prepared to pass the certification exam.

Current Mentoring Topics:

  • Azure Developers
  • Exchange Server
  • Lync Server
  • MDOP
  • Server Administrator
  • SharePoint Server
  • Virtualization
  • Web Developers
  • Windows 7
  • Windows 7 Developers
  • And more titles in the coming months


Check out the schedule, get more information on the program, and register here.

It’s time to put all that great product knowledge to use and get recognized for your achievements by taking and passing a certification exam.  Sign up today.

    Deanna, this is a great observation.  It's also great that you have identified this process that professionals go through by providing mentoring assistance.  In other words you are not leaving them hanging after they have taken valuable training.

    Thanks for the writeup.
