Microsoft Authorized Training Options for Certification Exam Preparation

Microsoft certification exams are performance-based requiring you to complete specific tasks during the exam to prove your knowledge and understanding of the technology rather than memorizing information.

The best way to prepare for a Microsoft certification exam is by having hands-on experience with the technology.

ONLC provides authorized Microsoft training classes

ONLC Training Centers is a Microsoft Gold Learning Partner. We provide authorized Microsoft training that will help you prepare for certification exams.

Instructor-led training (ILT) classes
Our instructor-led training classes are live, hands-on instruction. Classes are led by a Microsoft Certified Trainer (MCT). The class includes Microsoft official curriculum in digital format, and you'll do hands-on labs and exercises with the technology throughout the class. You can ask questions, participate in class discussions and receive direct assistance from the instructor during class.

Students may attend an ILT class from any of ONLC's more than 300 locations, or from your own home/office computer (see requirements).
