What you learn

What is the Microsoft Enterprise Skills Initiative?  

Following from our long-standing partnership, Bertelsmann and Microsoft are working together to help you learn the skills you need to be successful with Azure and other Microsoft technologies. This collaboration falls under the umbrella of the Microsoft Enterprise Skills Initiative. As part of the initiative, you have the chance to sharpen your technical skills and knowledge of Microsoft solutions by enrolling in interactive courses and training designed for your role, and advance your career by getting certified. You can find all courses, training material and access to certification exams on the Microsoft Learner Experience Platform (LXP). 

Microsoft Azure as a part of the Cloud Curriculum: 

Microsoft Azure is a Microsoft cloud computing platform with services such as SQL Azure or AppFabric that are primarily aimed at software developers. If you or your organization use Microsoft Azure cloud applications, Microsoft training courses enable you to qualify as an expert specifically for the Microsoft Cloud. An original Microsoft learning pathway is the most direct way to obtain an accredited Microsoft certification. For further information click here: Bertelsmann Tech Curricula

What is a learning with Microsoft like?​ 

Taking courses on the Microsoft LXP means that you will typically study in a cohort of peers and be able to exchange challenges and learnings in a like-minded group. In a virtual live training setting, a Microsoft-certified trainer will provide theoretical input, exercises and 1-on-1 guidance.  

How long will each course take?​ 

The length of a course depends on the chosen offer and may be one or more days long. You may wish to deepen your skills using the extensive self-study material provided by Microsoft. Especially, if you are looking to take a professional certification exam, complimentary self-study is encouraged, depending on your levels of proficiency and experience. 

What is the program language?​ 

Live trainings are available mainly in English. Other languages may be available, depending on the chosen course. You can find additional study material in a wide range of languages, too.
