Training events information


Where can I find information about training events?

If you’re considering partnership or already a partner, hopefully you’re exploring the many benefits of partnership and considering the wealth of resources offered such as training. Did you know that Microsoft also hosts training events online and around the globe? This post will give you all the details. If you’re in a hurry, go directly to the three key takeaways at the end.

Microsoft events

Need a one stop event finder? Look no further; the Microsoft events portal allows you to search through all Microsoft events. For partner specific events, simply mark the “partners” box in the filter on the left-hand side. You can also filter by category (in-person or online), products, language, and country.

Events listed cover a wide range of areas and levels from introductory sessions on topics like Power BI and Enterprise Mobility Suite to full day workshops focused on subjects like Advanced Analytics and Azure.

If you’re looking for ongoing information and support, regular webcasts, like What is new in the CSP program?, will give you all the important news, articles, and documents released during the previous month. 

Want to get more technical? The Microsoft Tech Summit is another valuable event where you can build your cloud skills, customize your learning, connect with experts, and get inspired.
