  • The following is a list of "official" instructor-led courses on Biztalk 2006:

    2933A: Developing Business Process and Integration Solutions Using Microsoft BizTalk Server 2006
    2934A: Deploying and Managing Business Process and Integration Solutions Using Microsoft BizTalk Server 2006
    2954C: First look: Microsoft BizTalk Server 2006 for Developers
    2955C: First Look: Microsoft BizTalk Server 2006 for IT Professionals
    50075A: BizTalk Hands-on Labs

    In your specific case, you probably want to find a CPLS that teaches the first one (Development), and I suggest that at least one person from the team take also the Deploying and Managing course. Even though the latter deals mainly with server administration, it provides information about the operation of Biztalk that is useful to know at development time.
