Microsoft Certifications

About Microsoft

To many of us, Microsoft is a company that requires no introduction! Microsoft has been in our lives for over four decades and during that time, Microsoft has consistently worked towards transforming the way we live, work, and connect using technology. Microsoft certifications are globally recognised qualifications, validating an individual’s competency and ability in technical knowledge of Microsoft technologies. By earning a Microsoft certification, you will gain a competitive advantage in the job market demonstrating a set of core competencies.

Microsoft is one of the biggest names in IT and the world of business overall. Microsoft strives to deliver results for all things related to computing, from its technical business software solutions, its universal desktop applications all the way to its world-class cloud computing infrastructure.

Professionals with Microsoft qualifications are highly sought-after simply because Microsoft is one of the most demanding and respected accreditations to have in the industry. Microsoft courses are well suited to individuals looking to secure a qualification as a demonstration of their ability and understanding, as well as individuals looking to advance their skills in Microsoft products.


Globally recognised qualification - Microsoft is a globally recognised company that has been at the forefront of the latest cutting-edge technological solutions and products for the last four decades. Holders of Microsoft certifications are valued for their experience, knowledge, and skills in Microsoft technologies.

Course diversity - Microsoft offers a plethora of courses to cater for a range of individuals. Whether you’re looking to achieve a Microsoft Office Specialist certification that demonstrates your prowess in Excel all the way to becoming a DevOps Engineer or a Windows Desktop Specialist

Enhanced career prospects - Microsoft certifications are highly sought-after qualifications at all levels. Employers and organisations look favourably on candidates with experience, skills, and knowledge of Microsoft technologies. A qualification validates your technical skills, your commitment, and willingness to learn as well as your interest in technological advances.

Flexible learning - Microsoft qualifications are available either through Virtual Classrooms or Online at e-Careers.  Whichever learning method you choose, you can be sure to be in control of your own learning, which allows you to choose when and where you want to study. The flexibility of the courses enable you to balance work and family commitments, as well as leisure time and social activities.

Career opportunities

Microsoft is widely used in companies across every single sector. Gaining a recognised qualification will showcase your IT skills. Microsoft is ubiquitous within a wide range of industries, so there is always demand for individuals who have skills across the full suite of Microsoft products. Although many purport to have an elementary knowledge of Microsoft programmes, relatively few people can claim to be truly skilled in the main Microsoft programmes. Therefore, taking a Microsoft certification course will certainly set you apart from other applicants applying to similar roles, whether you are looking to apply for administration roles or to move into the world of data analysis.

Once you have achieved your first Microsoft qualification you can go on to continue to develop your career path by completing further advanced Microsoft certifications. Microsoft continues to thrive in offering the latest cutting-edge technology and innovative products. If you’re keen to be a part of the evolution of technology, you’ll be able to do so with a Microsoft certification.

First-class IT skills are extremely high in demand and having a Microsoft certificate is a great way to begin your career journey or add more strings to your bow. Learning new skills and building on those you already have can have a huge impact on your career and your success when applying to new jobs. By studying a Microsoft course you'll be able to meet the demands of the 21st-century job market. Whether you want to launch your career in administration, take the first step in a career analysing data, or simply gain a solid understanding of Microsoft products to boost your CV, by gaining this sought-after knowledge you'll open doors to an exciting new phase in your career.
