  • Great Material - This course is a great reference and way to refresh your skills for the new Net+ exam! I needed a good refresh before taking the exam and this course is clearly laid out and copiously covers the material for the exam. Great course, well worth the money! -- M.B.
  • Perfect Course - Not only do you get great lectures that are pretty much PowerPoints with an instructor teaching you the concepts, there are also Demo lectures that show you how each of the concepts works in real life. This is such valuable information to have when taking the test. I feel very confident that this course is the best Network+ course on Udemy. -- D.R. Jr.
  • A Complete Jumpstart - What has impressed me the most is the depth of the content to this coarse. Each HD video is crystal clear in both the visual and audio, even including quality closed captioning (great for reading along with the lectures). I wasn't interested in the flashcards or the crossword puzzles when I started the program, but I've found them to be very useful in staying engaged in the class when away from home. This is everything you need to get started and have a classroom quality experience from home. Dive in and stay focused! -- P.C.

 What is a Charter certificate?

Charter Members are the pioneering group of individuals who achieve a certification within six months following the retail release date of the certification. (People who pass the beta exams will receive the Charter certificate after the certification is commercially released.) Charter Members are recognized by being given the Charter version of the certificate acknowledging their early adoption of the technology solution. The Charter version of the certificate includes the word "Charter."

 Which certifications are eligible for Charter status?

If you have any of the following certifications, you are eligible for the Charter certificate: Microsoft Certified Solutions Associate (MCSA), Microsoft Certified Solutions Expert (MCSE), Microsoft Certified Solutions Developer (MCSD), Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist (MCTS), Microsoft Certified IT Professional (MCITP), Microsoft Certified Solutions Master (MCSM), or Microsoft Certified Professional Developer (MCPD). Exceptions include those certifications that are released when the technology covered is no longer the latest version of the technology. These include the MCSA: Windows 7, the MCSA: SQL Server 2008, and the MCSA: Windows Server 2008.

In addition, Microsoft Specialist (Specialist) certifications released in and after September 2015 are also eligible for Charter status, including all Windows 10, Big Data Analytics, and Cloud Data Platform Specialist certifications.

 How much time do I have to order my Charter certificate?

You can digitally download or order your Charter certificate at any point after it is earned.

 When does the Charter certificate period start for localized exams?

The six-month "clock"’ start time is based on the earliest time the certification can be earned, which is typically based on English-language exam availability. For example, if an exam is available in German two months after the English version is available, the German candidate has only four more months to earn a Charter certificate.

 I have heard that Microsoft sponsors an Elevate America veterans initiative to help our country's veterans and their spouses acquire the skills and resources that they need to be successful in today's workplace. What is this initiative?

Through this initiative, Microsoft convenes a coalition of public, private, and nonprofit organizations that are interested in contributing expertise, cash, and in-kind resources to help U.S. veterans and their spouses build the skills and access the resources that they need to be successful in today's workforce.
