    Default 98-375 HTML5 Application Development Fundamentals [Microsoft Technical Associate]

    Hi

    I am interested in taking "HTML5 Application Development Fundamentals".

    1) I am not student, just a normal employee. Am I able to take exam?
    2) is this exam Microsoft specific? Do you need to know Microsoft products?

    To answer your first question: the exam page doesn't mention any requirements stating that you have to be a student, and as far as I know the MTA exams aren't targeted exclusively at students, but rather at newcomers to the IT field.

    As for your second question, it's a fair bet that the exam will be Microsoft-leaning, expect to see Microsoft tools and resources as part of any study material you use. The skills you learn will no doubt carry over from Microsoft-land to a *NIX environment, but the test will probably expect you to know a lot of Microsoft-defined terminology and their methodologies. There will be a lot of similarities in how things are done between platforms, with some exceptions here and there regarding exact details and specific tools.

    I thought that I had read you would be asked to show your student ID when at the Prometric center before taking an MTA exam (assuming you can take them at any Prometric exam center). I would contat Prometric before you register and ensure that this is not the case.

    From: Microsoft Technology Associate (MTA) FAQ

    Q. Is the MTA certification for me?


    A. At this time, the MTA certification is available to students, faculty, and staff of accredited academic institutions and to Microsoft Certified Trainers (MCT’s).
    If you already have an in-depth understanding of and hands-on experience with Microsoft technologies, you might want to start with a Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist (MCTS) certification or one of our Professional Series tracks, which includes the Microsoft Certified IT Professional (MCITP) and the Microsoft Certified Professional Developer (MCPD) certifications. If you are a student, changing careers, just starting your career, or exploring a technology career, earning an MTA certification will help guide your career planning.


    Q. My school does not have an MTA campus license, but I would like my students to consider taking an MTA certification exam on their own. Is this possible?


    A. At this time, MTA exams are only available to students, staff, and faculty of accredited academic institutions. If your institution does not have an MTA campus license, you or your students can purchase vouchers to take the exam at any public MTA testing center. You can also register your school to become an MTA testing center. Talk to a Certiport sales consultant to learn how your school can obtain MTA exams or become an authorized MTA testing center


    Q. Can I take an MTA certification exam at a Prometric testing center?


    A. No, MTA certification exams are only available at Certiport testing centers.
    I just confirmed that MTA exams are not offered by Prometric.

    Ah, there we go. I hadn't read up as closely on the MTA exams, (been busy trying to wrap my brain around the new MCSE stuff so I can answer questions here on TE.) Looks like I'll have to do some reading on these guys and perhaps put together an info-thread so that people will know.

    thanks Robert Kaucher. That means for non-students it's not possible to take exam

    I'd just take the 70-480 once it comes out. It was not a hard test at all. If you study the material I listed in the resource thread you should pass pretty easily.

    I just wanted to point out that the MTA exams are now commercially available and are not limited to academic institutions.
