Microsoft kicks off Skills Week

Microsoft kicks off Skills Week


Today marked the launch of more than 175 partner-led events in North America designed to help IT professionals and developers develop and validate their skills, network with industry leaders and achieve Microsoft Certified Professional status. Microsoft Skills Week will run March 9-13, followed by a series of events culminating at Tech•Ed in May. The Skills Week events will showcase more than 100 Microsoft Certified Partners for Learning Solutions and draw upon each partner’s expertise and provide access to Microsoft technical specialists and reduced rates on training resources.


The offerings include access to Career Assist, which gives individuals who register for Second Shot by June 30 the opportunity to purchase a Microsoft E-Learning Collection for $35 (U.S.) — a 90 percent price discount in most cases. It also includes quick study sessions to prepare individuals for Microsoft Certification exams, Live Meeting sessions with Microsoft technical specialists and Certified Trainers, and exam discounts providing certified on-site at events while saving up to 40 percent on exam fees.
