Details on Continuing Education Credits for MCTs

Also, earn 15 bonus Continuing Education credits before Dec. 31, 2000 by completing the Win2K MCSE track.

Microsoft has released a few details on the revamped MCT program, which goes into effect Jan. 1, 2001. Specifically, the company provides some criteria for its Continuing Education credit, which MCTs must achieve yearly before renewing one's MCT status. MCTs must earn at least 15 CE credits during the year from the following sources:

  • Passing certification exams (5 credits each)
  • Attending Microsoft courses (1 credit/day)
  • Attending trainer skills courses (1 credit/day)
  • Attending Microsoft technical conferences (1 credit/day)
  • Extra credits for various activities

Microsoft has been asked for clarification on some of these points, but hadn't commented as of this writing. Particularly, it hasn't offered details on the conferences or a roster of which "various activities" would qualify for credit.

On top of the credits, MCTs will have to pay a program fee to renew the title and be required to deliver 10 days of Microsoft training during the year. Microsoft hasn't said how much the renewal fee would be.

If you're an MCT who wants to get a jump on the continuing education credits for 2001, Microsoft is offering 15 CE credits for those who achieve the Windows 2000 MCSE before Dec. 31, 2000. To get more details on the bonus program, as well as more details on the continuing education credits as they're announced, log onto Microsoft's MCT Secure Web site at https://partnering.one.microsoft.com/MCT/ (you'll need your MCP ID to enter the site).
