Practice Accelerator for Microsoft Office 365 – Cloud Accelerate & Cloud Essentials Subscribers can attend for FREE!

Practice Accelerator provides intermediate- to advanced-level training in Office 365 solutions. Practice Accelerator for Office 365 is designed for Cloud Accelerate and Cloud Essentials partners in small and medium businesses who are planning to deploy Office 365 in environments with fewer than 2,400 seats. Ideal participants for this offering are project personnel with technical backgrounds, such as those in technical project management, technical consulting, or technical support.

Course participants are expected to meet the following prerequisites:
