Microsoft Fundamentals Exams
The pathway to AI, Data Science, and Cloud Computing

We are excited to announce that MSIA members now have access to five (5) Microsoft Fundamental exam vouchers for educator professional development. Your MSIA professional development benefit now includes 5 Fundamentals, 5 Microsoft Certified Educator (MCE), 10 Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS), and 10 Microsoft Technology Associate (MTA) exam vouchers. This change will be reflected in the Educator Development page on the Member site April 1, 2020.

The Microsoft Certified Fundamentals exams are the pathway to fully understanding all about cloud computing. This set of exams is the starting point for students who are looking to start a career in artificial intelligence, data science, and cloud computing. With the usage of big data and artificial intelligence on the rise, the demand for data scientists is not being met—and the gap is widening.

Help your students get on the pathway to a prosperous career by administering Microsoft Certified Fundamentals exams in your classroom.
