Brian R Ricks receives Microsoft Certified Trainer (MCT) certification

Working on certifications is something I have not done in years and yet it seems of late that is all that I have been doing. From MCSE to MCSM and now MCT I have been working on building a certification list that accurately defines my technical level and acumen. For years I have provided private training for companies in Microsoft Lync Server and Exchange Server and now I have a certification from Microsoft to back that training up.

Private training sessions with companies provides many extra value-ads when compared to a traditional training center. First, the training is provided at a location of your choice. Onsite training means less downtime for your employees, a major advantage.

Second, the training is often customized to meet the technical levels of the participants. Like any product training, there is an assumption of knowledge that the trainees must have and often that bar is set too low with basic product discussions happening the first few hours and sometimes days. That time may be better used with customized training bypassing the basics and moving into greater detail about the items the company is concerned about.

Third, the training is often at a discounted rate. Eliminating the cost of travel of multiple employees and only paying for the travel of the trainer helps to reduce those costs. Of course the actual cost per participant is a negotiated rate but usually less than a per/person cost of attending the training at a center. The students most likely know each other, have similar goals and issues they would like to better understand, and in the end the information presented is applicable and real-world.
