Teaching methods

Instructor-led classroom training with self-paced practical exercises in computer-based virtual environment on Hyper-V platform
Self-paced excercises usually take at least one third of the time spent on the course

Student materials

Electronical version of Microsoft Learning (MSL) official student training kit in English (Digital MOC)
The student kit contains an electronical version of a book with reprint of the presentations used during the course as well as detailed procedures for practical exercises. Excercises usually take at least one third of the time spent on the course
The student kit also represents a valid license to attend the course. Every student is officially required to have the student kit available for his own use during the course. If the student already owns student kit from a previous training, it is not necessarily required to pay for it again

Preparation for Microsoft certification

Most Microsoft certification exams do not require students to attend an official MOC course in order to pass the exam. This applies to all certifications except for MCM
Official Microsoft MOC courses as well as our own GOC courses are good ways of preparation for Microsoft certifications such as MCP, MTA, MCSA, MCSE or MCM
This does not mean that official MOC courses would serve as the only necessary praparation. The primary goal of an MOC course is to provide for sufficient theoretical knowledge and practical experience to effectively work with the related product
MOC courses usually cover most of the topics required by their respective certification exams, but often do not give every topic the same amount of time and emphassis as may be required to completelly pass the exam
