Microsoft Instructional Skills Certification Course
Learn the delivery and communication skills needed to become a dynamic trainer.
How the course works
The course is delivered over the course of two weeks in a blended learning format, combining live instructor meetings with digital, on-demand content. This is a flexible and adaptive method that enables learners to engage in both in-person and remote learning activities.
The course is delivered primarily through an online learning management system, where students have access to the course materials -- content, pre-recorded videos, and interactive resources.
Alongside the on-demand content, students will participate in two scheduled live, virtual meetings with the instructor during the two weeks. These one-hour meetings are usually held on the first two consecutive Mondays of the month at 1 PM (EST). During these meetings, the instructor will briefly review content and give you, as the learner, time to engage in real-time discussions, ask questions, and receive feedback.
At the end of the two weeks, students are asked to show their skills by creating a short (5-10 minute) video presenting a topic of their choice. They will then receive feedback from an MCT.
