With the Microsoft mission to empower every person and organization on the planet to achieve more, Microsoft Learn enables people to build the necessary technical skills to be successful. As part of our continued investment, we’re happy to announce an easier way to schedule instructor-led training with our trusted Learning Partners and an exciting lineup of learning opportunities for you at Microsoft Ignite, a 48-hour free digital event that starts today!


Improved scheduling experience with Learning Partners

When it’s time for in-depth structured learning, instructor-led training brings you and your team dedicated, personal attention and support from technical subject matter experts. Microsoft Learning Partners offer a breadth of customized training solutions that combine Microsoft Official Courseware, local expertise, video, and hands-on labs to take your skills and those of your team to the next level. And we’re making it easier for you to discover and schedule instructor-led training courses with our Learning Partners around the world.


On Microsoft Learn, search for classes by location and time, filter for virtual deliveries, and complete the scheduling process with an integrated checkout process directly on the partner website. The feature is currently in Public Preview with select early training partner adopters: Global Knowledge and Leading Learning Partners Association (LLPA), and course registration is available in English only to start. As we onboard more Learning Partners, expect additional courses available to schedule directly on Microsoft Learn. For a list of currently available courses and answers to common questions, be sure to check out the FAQ for scheduling courses with Learning Partners.
