Microsoft Technology Associate at Cardiff Met

​Microsoft Technology Associate (MTA) is a Microsoft qualification scheme that validates technical skills and knowledge.

At Cardiff Met our MTA Web Design Fundamentals course leads to the Introduction to Programming Using HTML and CSS Microsoft Technology Associate certification. The course develops learners so that they are confident in two key web technologies (HTML and CSS); the MTA certification provides proof of those skills.

We also offer MTA courses and exams for the other eleven MTA qualifications. See the Microsoft Technology Associate training and certification page for details of these courses.
