Microsoft Virtual Academy (MVA) provides you with access to countless hours of online training videos on the latest and greatest technologies all for FREE! If you haven't registered for Microsoft Virtual Academy yet, do it now! You can register by going to their home page, and signing in with your Microsoft Live ID. Click HERE to get started!

Setup a Learning Plan

In addition to providing free online training, MVA also lets you set up your own Learning Plan, which allows you to queue up a selection of courses in a list for easy access when you log into your MVA account.


You can also view your list of courses in progress, as well as courses completed, and even download a course completion certificate, or your MVA transcript.


Earn Points For Learning!

With each module that you complete, you earn points towards your MVA ranking. Each course has a total number of points that can be earned, but you still earn points by module. Completing a course will earn you bonus points.



As you earn points, your MVA profile is associated with a bronze, silver, gold, and then platinum cup as you progress up the list. You can see how you rank in your country, and overall. Your MVA ranking might not seem like a big deal now, but as you rack up those points, you will secure bragging rights. Even more so if your name ends up on the MVA top 3 students of the week list Smile



It’s Fun, Free, and Fabulous

So what are you waiting for? Get onto Microsoft Virtual Academy today, learn something new, and have fun along the way!
