Microsoft has made it a prerequisite for its certified trainers in the Gulf region to hold CompTIA CTT+ certification. The new rule will apply in Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, the UAE, Yemen and Pakistan. The Computing Technology Industry Association (CompTIA) claims to be the world’s largest provider of vendor neutral certifications for professionals in the IT industry. The CompTIA Certified Technical Trainer (CTT+) certification validates that a technical instructor has attained a standard of excellence in his or her profession. To gain CTT+ certification, trainers must demonstrate core competencies including knowledge and credibility, classroom performance and effective communication and presentation skills. “Microsoft Gulf decided to make CompTIA CTT+ a prerequisite for all Microsoft-certified trainers in the Gulf and Pakistan quite simply because we want to ensure the highest standards of training for our professional courses,” said Taj El-Khayat, partner development and marketing manager at Microsoft Gulf and Pakistan. “We believe that the CompTIA certification provides us with an accurate and comprehensive measurement of a trainer’s skills and competency across all of the most important aspects of the discipline. Microsoft is also committed to industry standards; and with the high regard that CompTIA CTT+ is held by the IT industry, we feel that it provides us with the best assessment of a trainer’s ability,” he added. Rudolf Tegelaar, regional director at CompTIA Middle East, commented: “The combination of technical skills, experience and delivery skills make an excellent trainer. Microsoft is truly striving for quality with their training partners, and this initiative demonstrates their commitment to quality.”
