    I read somewhere that if you do all 6 certifications (vista, word, excel, outlook, powerpoint, access) and pass the exams that you become a MCAS master instructor.....Is this true or is there more to it?

    ...Heh.

    On the site I quoted to you there was a section called Requirements if you'd like to check it yourself :p

    Else read ThomasMc's response.

    There is no such thing as a MCAS master instructor. There is Microsoft Office 2000/XP/2003 Master instructor or there is the Microsoft Certified Application Specialist instructor credential.

    You do not need to do all 6 exams, as Access is optional. However there is more than just passing the 5 exams in order to qualify for Microsoft Certified Application Specialist instructor status.

    You also have to provide proof of your instructional experience (from a college/Uni) or credentials such as instructor certs from CSO Group, CompTIA, Certified Internet Webmaster, Cisco Systems, Citrix, Lotus, Microsoft (MCT), Novell, Oracle or Santa Cruz Operation. THe instructor's cert from Certiport is not on the list. Plus there is a fee you have to pay.

    I have to say that the links on the MS site only point to the older MS instructors cred, Certiport has the info on the new one. See here for more info.

    Have you read what you've quoted me saying?

    There a link in the quote for you. Failing that, if you take a look on the Certiport website there's a whole page on the MCAS Instructors cred with FAQ's.

    Hope this helps

    Hi Ken
    Yes i have read what I quoted you saying.

    I have read the FAQ and gone to the Certiport site and looked for the application but apparently it says i don't meet the requirements...even though i've done the exams. Am I being dumb and not seeing the link for the application form?

    Have you e-mailed/sent them proof of instructor status? I remember when I went for the IC3 Instructors cert, I had to send them proof that I was an instructor first before I could complete the application process (even though it's number 2 on the list).

    It took about 24 hours for the status to change from "not qualified" to "apply now" (or something like that) so i filled in the form and then got an email asking me to send my credentials to the email address given. Then got another email saying that the credentials have been accepted and asking me to pay the $95 fee (about £61). As soon as I paid the fee (it only takes credit card) my application had been accepted and I'll get the official comfirmation in 4 weeks.
