    Why get certified?

    Now, more than ever, trainings and certifications are vital to fuel a successful career. Microsoft certification makes technology professionals like you more likely to get hired, demonstrate clear business impact, and advance your careers. Compared to their peers, Microsoft certified developers are 90% more productive and nearly 60% more efficient. If it’s true that time is money, then earning a Microsoft certification is certainly worth the time. On average, Microsoft certified technologists earn 15% more than their uncertified peers. What’s more, certified employees are often entrusted with supervising their peers—putting you on the fast track for a promotion. Certified technologists advance their careers quickly, becoming qualified leaders on their teams and in their businesses.

    Prep classes will be offered in the T05 and T10 time slots on the agenda, right after the Tuesday morning keynote. Testing will be administered all week in a dedicated room at the Microsoft Conference Center, where Visual Studio Live! is taking place.
