I throw out challenges regularly on this website.
The prize can be Amazon vouchers, iPad minis, study guides, exam fees refunded, or something else entirely. The process is always the same no matter when I do it.
- 20,000 Students invited
- 100 make a start
- 2 finish the challenge
Often the finish number can be zero or 1.
I always state that if you complete it you will almost certainly be the winner but maybe nobody believes me. Well, it's happened again. I threw out an iPad mini challenge for any IT exams passed during June 2022. I heard back from one member, Des Roopal. He's passed his Microsoft Azure Fundamentals AZ-900 exam. Impressive.
A week later I heard back from Des. He's passed his Microsoft MTA Python exam next. I was doubly impressed because it wasn't related to his first. Another week passes and he completes the Microsoft MTA Server certification. He scored a hat trick.
It's hard to impress me but I'm sure you'll agree that he's really done a great job there. I didn't ask but I can tell you that the formula was simple. No TV hit the books/videos daily and hands-on labs. Des was actually the only one to finish so he could have stopped at one exam.
Now, imagine him applying for jobs with those three certifications on his resume. If you join the newsletter below you'll hear about the next challenge coming very soon.
