New Horizons and MS Team Up to Offer Pre-Exam Cert Mentoring

Ed Tittel Ed Tittel Profile: Ed Tittel

In a rare and unusual display of industry wide cert candidate support, Microsoft and New Horizons have teamed up to offer free mentoring sessions to students who have recently taken a certification training class but not yet taken the corresponding exam. The “rare and unusual” part of this offer comes from its extension to any and all cert candidates. In other words, you needn’t have taken a class from Microsoft nor New Horizons to qualify for this offer (see this Born to Learn blog post from 9/6/2011 for more details “Certification Mentoring Partnership Launches“).

Here’s a key snippet from that blog post that explains a bit more about what’s available and how it works:


What it is:

  • Delivered by Microsoft Certified Trainers
  • Sessions are delivered as webcasts
  • Reviews the top technical issues that correspond to the questions that are most often missed on the certification exams

What it is not:

  • This is not a free training class, but an opportunity for students who have already taken training, and want to make sure they are prepared to pass the certification exam.

Current Mentoring Topics:

  • Azure Developers
  • Exchange Server
  • Lync Server
  • MDOP
  • Server Administrator
  • SharePoint Server
  • Virtualization
  • Web Developers
  • Windows 7
  • Windows 7 Developers 



See the New Horizons Web page entitled “Confidence Before You Sit for the Exam” for more information, details, and program sign-up (registration required). Obviously, New Horizons thinks you’re going to like this offer so much you’ll come see them for a future course some time. My advice: take advantage of this while it lasts, if you’re taking any of the related MS exams. It’s almost too good to be true!
