With Windows 10 courses and exams just around the corner there will be some changes to the existing certifications and exams from Microsoft.

  • A brand new Windows 10 Specialist certification. You’ll need to pass the client exam for that. This Specialist certification will be the pre-requisite for MCSE: Enterprise Devices and Apps.

  • Get in quick if you want to get certified in MCSA Windows 8 as the certification and exam will retire on 30th November 2015. Already certified? You get to keep it on your transcript.

  • From 30th September 2015, students passing Windows 7 exams 70-680, 70-685, or 70-686 will result in a Specialist certification. Again, anyone who previously earned a Windows 7 MCSA will keep that certification on their transcript.

  • The Lync exams 70-336 and 70-337 will retire in November and will be replaced with Skype for Business exams. We will update our certification guides as soon as we have our servers in a line.

Our AIICT brand expands portfolio with ten new courses to help address ICT skills shortage
The Australian Institute of ICT (AIICT) has introduced a new series of industry certified bootcamp programs and nationally-recognised qualifications to meet the surging demand for skilled ICT professionals in Australia.  The bootcamps support the Morrison Government’s recently announced Digital Skills Organisation (DSO) pilot, which recognises the importance of non-accredited training to support the development of skills of the future workforce. The bootcamp programs run for six months and comprise of several vendor-specific certifications. The courses include ‘Cloud Computing Certified Professional’, ‘Certified Microsoft Full Stack Developer’, ‘Certified Artificial Intelligence Professional’, ‘Growth Marketing Professional’ and ‘Certified Project Management Professional’. The decision to introduce the bootcamps follows the VET sector’s increasing move away from nationally recognised qualifications to vendor-specific, industry-certified training. According to the National Centre for Vocational Education Research, preference for accredited training courses has declined steadily in recent years, with employers increasingly less satisfied that these courses provide their employees with the most relevant and important skills for their business. This has led many organisations to preference non-accredited training provided by private technology vendors such as Microsoft and AWS.
