About our Certification Fast Track Training

With our Certification Fast Track Training, you participate in official Microsoft training - but instead of a full week from Monday to Friday, the training is split into two smaller sections.

The Instructor-led part of the training is focused on hands on and best practices. The theoretical part of the courseware will be studied self-paced, in order not to loose precious practice time during your instructor led training days. Exam preparation is an important part of this training delivery - hence we include a Practice Test which will ensure that you will start your exam well prepared. To complete the offer the Exam Voucher is already included as well.

As a participant, you can use the time in between the training days to deepen or repeat content. In addition, you have the advantage of not being absent from work for an entire week, so that day-to-day business is not neglected.

After your registration you will receive an introduction to the program. You will also receive reminder e-mails from us along the way.
