Increase your options when starting a career in IT and show potential employers what you’re worth with a Microsoft certification, demonstrating your skills and ability to take on a job that uses Microsoft technologies.

As digitalization changes the way we do business, training and certification can help you to improve your likelihood of landing a highly sought-after technical position. A Microsoft certification equips you with relevant, cutting-edge skills that will help shape a long and rewarding IT career. According to the 2019-20 Nigel Frank International Microsoft Dynamics Salary Survey, 27 percent of the almost 1400 professionals surveyed reported a direct increase in their salary after certification.

The Benefits of Microsoft Certification

When they obtain a Microsoft certification, most technical professionals say they have greater confidence in their abilities to perform their jobs, they enjoy greater job satisfaction, and their salaries are increased.

Additionally, according to reports:

91% of certified IT professionals say that certification gives them more professional credibility. (2018 Pearson VUE Value of Certification)
93% of decision-makers agree that certified employees provide added value. (Global Knowledge 2019 IT Decision Makers Insights)
52% of certified IT professionals say their specialization is the most sought-after within their organization. (Global Knowledge 2019 IT skills and salary report)

When you earn an industry-recognized certification,
you can make an impressive update to your LinkedIn profile and you increase your chances of attracting potential recruiters and employers, leading to better job opportunities. Certifications are a powerful asset for job seekers and for those looking to advance their career.

In fact, certifications make hiring easier, as they help job seekers to stand out from the crowd. More than half of IT decision makers believe that the number one benefit of certified individuals is their ability to close the organizational skills gaps that appear in environments with ever-changing technology.

Microsoft provides you with the ability to start a specific certification path that matches your job role and helps you to improve your skills. Microsoft certificates can be categorized by job role, certificate type, or level.

In terms of certificate level, Microsoft Fundamental certifications are recommended for those planning to start using a new technology or looking to change their career path. Microsoft Associate certifications require a minimum of two years of practical experience in the certificate subject. For Microsoft Expert certifications, you will need to have up to five years of advanced practical experience with the specific technology to get certified in that field.
