From 2018 onwards, anniversary award emails will be sent out in early January to all MCTs who will achieve a qualifying anniversary during the coming year. Included in the email blast are all the MCTs who will achieve a 5, 10, 15, 20, or 25-year anniversary in 2018.

What you should know about the awards

  • The anniversary is calculated using the first year a trainer joined the program, regardless of any gaps in tenure. See chart below for year details.
  • To order the award, just log into Certification Marketplace with the email address associated with your MCP/MCT profile.
  • Awards are free of charge, and Microsoft covers the cost of any shipping or handling fees.
  • Important – If an MCT is asked to pay customs charges, they should reject the package, and reach out to the MCT support team to request a replacement.
  • Arvato will only send one email invitation; no “reminder emails” will be sent. However, these awards do not expire. The MCT can return to Certification Marketplace at any time to order the award.
  • MCTs with 5 or 10 years receive a Polo shirt and a certificate. MCTs with 10 or 20 years receive a jacket and a certificate. MCTs with 25 years receive a laptop bag and a certificate.
  • Awards are mailed from California, USA, and take 4-6 weeks to be delivered. Tracking information is not provided.
  • MCT Alumni do not qualify for an anniversary award.
  • The chart below lists the anniversary years for the 5, 10, 15, 20, and 25-year awards for 2018.
