Clapton is god

Our very own Managing Director of WAUKCE, Alan Sweeney is now a Microsoft Certified Trainer!

As a MCT, Alan is a professional trainer that has been certified by Microsoft in terms of professional know-how and the ability to communicate that to others.

MCTs are the premier technical and instructional experts in Microsoft technologies, and are the only individuals authorised to deliver training for Microsoft Certification. They are often viewed as the premiere experts in their field; being the gateway for IT staff to update their own skills.

With Alan becoming the Centre’s first MCT, plans to gain Microsoft authorisation are moving along nicely. Another is planned to gain the qualification in the next month or two and we have a target of five by the end of the year. We’re leading from the front towards the Centre of Excellence’s strategies of demonstrably bringing the best training to Oldham, using only people with great training skills and qualifications to lead courses. The Web Apps strategy of partnering closely with the leading providers of cutting-edge technology also sees us staying ahead.

As a certified Prometric and Pearson VUE training centre, we already offer a range of professional qualifications, including:

• Microsoft certifications

• CompTIA

• Linux Professional Institute

So well done Alan, with this certification your vision for the future of the Centre of Excellence is becoming a reality!
