The Associate of Science in Information Technology Program at the Jacksonville campus was pleased to partner with Microsoft, JaxFISGto, Certiport and TierPoint to facilitate the 2016 MTA (Microsoft Technology Associate) Festival at the campus. This event was ideal for students, new career seekers and IT professionals in order to validate technology skills through a Microsoft certification. The campus provided free registration for all participants including a master class in Microsoft technologies, and the opportunity to participate in more than one topic exam. We provided this exceptional resource for our community at least two times per calendar year. The next event will be a full day experience next Summer 2016 including free breakout sessions, lectures, hands-on training and proctored certification tests in our labs.
