“To stay connected with the modern digital world, keep your knowledge up to date by learning new technologies, which empower learners with the knowledge, confidence, decision-making power, and much more.

Interview with Rehan
Rehan, thanks for speaking with us today! We can’t wait to hear your thoughts about speaking at the MCT summit.
Why did you want to participate in the summit?
Rehan: Many new people become MCTs every year, but they don’t know what benefits are available to MCTs. Many MCTs also don’t know how to teach classes when their students don’t have good resources to practice what they learn.
What did you speak about?
Rehan: I wanted to share some of the MCT benefits with MCTs and students in the session, especially the resources available on the XtremeLabs platform to learn on demand. Some of these resources are free for their use when prepping ahead of teaching a classroom. I also wanted to share how to use the lab features on the XtremeLabs platform.
Why is that so important?
Rehan: Many MCTs hold multiple Microsoft certifications and have excellent technical skills. However, I’ve met many MCTs who don’t know that Microsoft offers free MCT Readiness access to labs on the XtremeLabs platform when MCTs are prepping for their classroom teaching. This access to labs ahead of the scheduled classroom start date means that MCTs can practice how they will teach in a low-pressure environment and make sure they are fully prepared before they interact with students. We want MCTs to be successful!
What were some of the other topics that you found interesting?
Rehan: I found the following topics interesting:
- There was an excellent discussion about new directions for PowerShell.
- The concluding remarks by Tiago Costa were also wonderful.
Would you speak at another MCT summit in the future?
What’s something you want the XtremeLabs community to know?
Rehan: Everyone should learn and earn Microsoft certifications. They will equip learners with great knowledge, confidence, and leadership qualities.
Thank you for speaking with us, Rehan!
