Microsoft Official Courses (MOC) Now Online and On-Demand

Microsoft certification candidates in search of training can now go through various partners to sign up for online on-demand training for many of the company’s current Microsoft Official Course (MOC) offerings.

Microsoft now offers its official courses at your convenience via MOC On-Demand. These courses match the content that Microsoft has long offered as part of its official curriculum for classroom training, itself now available in both physical and virtual forms.

These training materials combine video-based instruction, text-based reading materials, hands-on labs accessed online, and ongoing “knowledge checks” (questions to answer, and problems to solve) to make sure that students are successfully learning the materials and grasping key concepts, practices, and principles.


The on-demand nature of the offering means that students can proceed at their own pace (within limits: most MOC On-Demand offerings provide 90 days of access to course materials), on their own schedules, and using their own PCs or laptops wherever they want to use them.


MOC On-Demand doesn’t appear to be available directly from Microsoft (those willing to pay to travel to Redmond or other key global MS office locations can still make the pilgrimage to drink in MOC direct from the source).


Instead, the new service is available from Microsoft Learning Partners, or through a Courseware Marketplace for those who work for (or attend) member education outlets belonging to the Microsoft Imagine Academy.
