    Where is here?

    Do you have any IT experience?

    Do you have a college degree?

    If you want to stay with Microsoft, I would say you should be looking at a MCSA, or if you feel you're not ready for that, then at least a MTA. I have the MCITP and it never really comes up these days. I would say if you're looking to get into certification, Windows 10 is your best bet for a client, as it's similar enough to Windows 7 that a lot of skill is transferable. I'm currently studying for the first of two exams at the end of the month for it.

    MTA is another area where you could look into to get a foundational level of knowledge. Something like this: https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/learning/exam-98-349.aspx

    Just so you know, the MCITP title for Windows 7 was retired at the end of March. It could have been completely retired for every platform, but best to check with Microsoft.

    Yah there will always be entry certainly from Microsoft just under new names for the different versions. Check out mcsa for windows 10. Or the mta exams if you're really new.

    All MCITP certifications are retired and have been for at least a year. I'd advise against giving any money to that training center.

    I got MCITP:EDST on my transcript and I only passed it in March. I however didn't get it for passing 70-686:EDA. Microsoft rep told me the title was retired March 31st.
