How XtremeLabs works with MCTs


Classroom Training
  • The original Microsoft ALH
  • Updated features in a platform that responds to MCT needs
  • Pre-classroom setup and access
  • Extensive digital learning lab catalog with all Microsoft titles and other technologies
  • Contact for a demo with our team


Lab Prep

XtremeLabs is the official lab hoster for the MCT Readiness program. Free lab prep is part of your Readiness benefits! MCTs can gain access to Microsoft labs for class prep by validating their MCID and the associated email address. The email you use for your MLO account must be the same email your MCT credentials are registered to. If they are different, you will first need to create a new account with the proper email address. MCTs can practice with the digital learning lab before your classroom starts in a live environment. If you encounter any issues linking your XtremeLabs account, please reach out to our Support Team, providing your current MCT email and MCID.

The Readiness program gives MCTs access to tools, discounts, and support, including labs that can be used for teaching prep

From the MCT Central page under “Program Benefits and Tools,” you can find a document that explains the benefits:

Lab Benefits include:
  • Free access to hosted lab environment for classroom preparations
  • Lab environments with the same staged Virtual Machines, lab steps, and tools found in the classroom version of labs
  • New labs are added every week; all active Microsoft Official Curriculum and Instructor-Led Courseware with a lab component are included
