About our Exam Prep Training

With our Exam Prep Training, you participate in official Microsoft training - but instead of a full week from Monday to Friday, the training is split into two smaller sections.

The Instructor-led part of the training is focused on hands on and best practices. The theoretical part of the courseware will be studied self-paced, in order not to loose precious practice time during your instructor led training days. Exam preparation is an important part of this training delivery - hence we include a Practice Test which will ensure that you will start your exam well prepared. To complete the offer the Exam Voucher is already included as well.

As a participant, you can use the time in between the training days to deepen or repeat content. In addition, you have the advantage of not being absent from work for an entire week, so that day-to-day business is not neglected.


Process of Exam Prep Training

After your registration you will receive an introduction to the program. You will also receive reminder e-mails from us along the way.

Below are your 5 steps of your Exam Prep training:

  1. Self study of the theoretical part of your Microsoft Official Course guide
  2. Take your 2-day Instructor Led Training, focused on hands on practice (The first 2 days of the displayed dates in the schedule)
  3. Continue to practice your labs, studying your theory and complete the provided Official Microsoft Practice Test. The practice test shows you which topics need more attention.
  4. Take your 1-day Instructor Led Exam Preparation Training. The instructor will clear out any questions that you have left (The last day of the displayed dates in the schedule). 
  5. Use your MCP exam voucher to complete your exam within two weeks after the Exam Prep Training.
