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.
