Higher Education Commission (HEC) and Microsoft have been promoting IT skills in the education sector for over a long time. According to the agreement between HEC and Microsoft, the first 2000 applicants who register first will receive free Microsoft certification from home.
The initiative was taken to bridge the gap between education and employment by providing technical IT skills to the students. The current agreement is applied to private and public sector universities to offer specialized training to the young people according to the international standards.
The courses that will be offered under a free Microsoft certification program will include productivity, computer science, data science, and information technology.
Moreover, students will benefit from Microsoft Technology Associate (MTA) and Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS) certifications by validating their skills and advancing their careers.
The exams that are covered under the Microsoft certification program include Office 365, technology-based courses covering Azure fundamentals, Dynamics 365 fundamentals, and Microsoft 365 fundamentals.
Many students think that during the Covid-19 pandemic, they have more time to give them the space to focus on developing in-demand skills and theoretical knowledge.
Students who register for certification would get a free certification offer on their choice of available MOS or MTA offerings. The students can conveniently select the technology area of their choice and learn at home with in-depth tutorials and self-study videos and take the exam online from the comfort of their homes.
HEC Chairman, Dr Tariq Banuri says:
“Digital transformation has been at the forefront of every industry in the last few years, and education is no different.”
He further commented that HEC would bring in a set of modern tools and technology that could develop a technology-enriched culture in the country’s education sector.
During setting up an agreement, Microsoft-Pakistan Country Education Lead Jibran said that:
“The variety of skills you can learn in the Microsoft Certification Program allows you to display your flexibility to current and prospective employers. These credentials demonstrate that you can use a variety of strategies to solve problems and resolve the concerns of consumers and stakeholders more effectively.”
The certification will enable students to select the technology area of their choice conveniently and to learn at home with in-depth tutorials.
The registration process for Microsoft certification will be shared soon. So, stay in touch with us.
