Human Resources

Welcome to Microsoft IT Academy

IT Academy logo

IT-Academy is a free resource for Students, Faculty and Staff to take online courses from Microsoft.  Whether you are trying to become Microsoft certified or just want to brush up on your skills, we have the courses for you.  Upon finishing a course, you will receive a certificate of completion; however, if you are looking for Microsoft Certification, you are required to go to a Certified Microsoft Testing Center.

Faculty and staff are encouraged to add this training into the Human Resources system for record keeping.  Log into MyCWU > Employee Tab > Training Folder > Add Professional Training and enter the IT Academy courses.
