  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am looking for suggestions on the best training course and/or exam for Microsoft Licensing.  I do not work in sales, but am a member of a small IT team in a medium size organization.  Microsoft licensing is part of role and it is often very difficult to determine licensing requirements for compliancy or new solutions without extensive help by a partner which is often a very tedious and labourious task.  The idea is to have inhouse knowledge.

  • Twyan,

    I teach courses in Microsoft licensing across the US, Canada, and the UK. Right now, I have courses scheduled in Dallas, Toronto, Calgary, New York, London, San Francisco, and Washington, DC. There's a two-day basic course, plus a day covering more advanced and specialized topics, and another day covering Enterprise Agreements in more depth. The two-day course covers the basics of the EA, but the special course dips much deeper into strategy, determining the fit between your requirements and the EA and so on. 

    I also offer customized on-site courses, which can be less expensive for the customer if they have four or more people who could use this training. 

    An important point I need to make is that I don't represent Microsoft, and I don't resell Microsoft software. I'm independent of both the vendor and its resellers. My objective, as a trainer and a consultant, is to give you the skills to make smart choices for your organization, based on your IT road map and requirements. Whether you buy more or less software is not an issue for me. That you buy the right software, using the right program, is.

    For a list of the courses and the topics they cover, see http://www.picacommunications.com/clinics.html.
