ABOUT THIS COURSE
This three-day MTA Training course helps you prepare for Microsoft Technology Associate Exam 98-380 and build an understanding of these topics: Apply strategies to solve computational problems, Design Algorithms, Work with data representation in block based programming languages, Solve computational problems by using modeling and simulation, Code programming in block based programming, Assess personal security in internet communications, Examine and software development process. This course leverages the same content as found in the Microsoft Official Academic Course (MOAC) for this exam.
The Microsoft Technology Associate (MTA) is Microsoft’s newest suite of technology certification exams that validate fundamental knowledge needed to begin building a career using Microsoft technologies. This program provides an appropriate entry point to a future career in technology and assumes some hands-on experience or training but does not assume on-the-job experience.

Introduction to Programming Using Block-Based Languages
|Exam 98-380||Introduction to Programming Using Block-Based Languages|
Candidates for this exam should understand algorithmic flow, can describe computer programs, use and implement common program control structures, and describe what the code does in block-based programming languages such as the Touch Develop environment from Microsoft and MIT Scratch.
Candidates should also be familiar with the concepts and technologies described here by taking relevant training courses, such as Creative Coding through Games and Apps (CCGA) or Scratch or Blackly courses. Candidates are expected to have some hands-on experience designing, creating, and publishing code within a block-based programming language.
