Free Microsoft Training from Microsoft Virtual Academy

Education No Comments on Free Microsoft Training from Microsoft Virtual Academy 96

One of the services that has kept Microsoft ahead of the competition in the enterprise world for over a decade is their high quality free training opportunities.  Oddly free training is something that Microsoft does well, and yet very few people know about it.  Their training allows you to get a good understanding of the technologies you may be thinking about deploying, or introduce you to products that you didn’t know even existed.  It’s easy to think Microsoft only offers Windows, Office and Azure, but the full scope of their products is mind numbing.

The Microsoft Virtual Academy offers a huge number of on demand video courses and also allows you to asses your progress and track your learning.  The site isn’t the most coherently designed, but if you’re willing to spend a few minutes wandering the selections you’ll definitely find something of interest.

I am Eli "the Computer Guy" and have been in the tech industry for approx. 20 years doing all kinds of odd projects. I started as an electronics tech in the US Army, worked in corporate IT during the IT Boom, was an individual consultant and grew my tech shop to have numerous full time employees and supported small business clients with computer repair/ server maintenance/ web development/ surveillance systems/ telephone systems until the great recession. After that I started creating video training on all the topics I know and now have a YouTube Channel with over 500K subscribers. I am the founder of and my plan is to create a tech "news" site that I would actually find useful if I was still in the server room.
