Training Details

This training will get you fully up to speed with Microsoft’s Cognitive Toolkit deep learning library.

You will learn all about regression, binary and multiclass classification, transfer learning, fine tuning, and much more. You’ll also master different neural network architectures and learn how and when to deploy them.

As you progress through the training material, you’ll design, train, and evaluate many complex machine learning models on your own computer.

I will provide you with all the datasets, source code and libraries you need to get going and build your own machine learning apps in C#.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • This Training
  • Self-Paced Training
  • Guided Training
  • Classroom Training
What is included in this training?

You will receive lifetime access to training lectures, video lessons, quizzes and homework assignments.

How long will it take me to complete this training?

For a self-paced and guided training, you can spend as much or as little time you want on the lectures and labs. It’s entirely up to you how long you take to complete the training. For a classroom training, we will complete all of the training content and labs together in 3 days.

How long do I have access to the training content?

You have lifetime access to all training content.

What do I need for this training?

You’ll need a Windows laptop (or other operating system running a Windows virtual machine) with a recent version of the NET Core Framework and the Visual Studio Code editor installed. You will also need Microsoft Teams if you’re attending the live classroom training. 

For which certification does this training prepare me?

This training is not part of an official Microsoft certification path, but you can use it to prepare for the Azure Data Scientist or Azure AI Engineer certifications if you like. 

What is a self-paced training?

In a self-paced training, you study the training lectures and work on the lab assignments in your own time and at your own pace. You can spend as many or as little hours per week as you want on the training. This training format is ideal for tech professionals who have irregular work hours and cannot commit to a classroom training. 

How am I supported in a self-paced training?

I will support you in a private Slack channel. You can ask me anything you want anytime you like, and I will respond as soon as I’m able to. I typically respond in 2-3 hours but it can take a little longer if we are in different timezones. 

Who should attend a self-paced training?

A self-paced training is ideal for tech professionals who can work independently and only need a little support throughout the training to learn the content and complete the lab exercises.

My colleagues and I want to sign up as a team and learn together. Is this possible?

No, self-paced training is only for individual students who each learn at their own pace. Please consider a classroom training instead.

What is a guided training?

In a guided training, you study the training lectures and work on the lab assignments in your own time and at your own pace. We will also spend some time together in a series of Microsoft Teams calls in which I will support you with the training lectures and the lab exercises and help you get ready for the certification exam.

How am I supported in a guided training?

I will support you in a private Slack channel, and you can also book an unlimited number of 1-hour Microsoft Teams support calls with me. In these calls, I will support you with the training lectures and the lab exercises and help you get ready for the certification exam. 

Who should attend a guided training?

A guided training is ideal for tech professionals who prefer a healthy mix of guidance and independence with an average level of support throughout the training to learn the content and complete the lab exercises.

My colleagues and I want to sign up as a team and learn together. Is this possible?

No, guided training is only for individual students who each learn at their own pace. Please consider a classroom training instead.

What is a classroom training?

A classroom training is a live event in which I will present the training lectures, help you complete the lab exercises and get you ready for the certification exam. Classroom trainings are conducted online in full-day Microsoft Teams calls held during business hours in the Central European timezone. You will be sharing the classroom with other students and learn together as a group. 

When and where is classroom training conducted?

Classroom trainings are conducted online during Central European business hours. You will receive a Microsoft Teams link when you sign up for a class. Please note that classroom trainings can also be held on-site at your place of work. Please book a discovery call with me if you’re interested, and we can discuss your requirements.

How am I supported in a classroom training?

I will continuously support you live, because we’ll both be in the same virtual classroom together. 

Who should attend a classroom training?

A classroom training is ideal for tech professionals who can commit to full days of learning and want to learn together as a group. 

My colleagues and I want to sign up as a team and learn together. Is this possible?

Yes, absolutely. Please book a discovery call with me to discuss your requirements. I can offer group discounts to business teams.
