Microsoft IT Academy

Microsoft IT Academy (ITA)

OSPI and Microsoft have partnered to provide Microsoft IT Academy (ITA) to all Washington high schools. Microsoft ITA will bridge the gap between the world of education and the world of work. It will boost Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) education statewide and the employability and global competitiveness of our students and future workforce.

What is it?
Microsoft ITA provides training and certification in a number of Microsoft products, including Word, Excel, Access, Project, as well as advanced topics, including programming, Web development, and database development. OSPI has also partnered with CCI Learning Solutions to provide free certification testing for students, teachers and staff at each high school.
