Software Assurance training benefits
Software Assurance training benefits help boost productivity by providing technical classroom training for IT professionals and developers, and opportunities to enhance end-user readiness, all designed to ensure effective and efficient deployment, management, support and adoption of new Microsoft software without impacting your training budget. Software Assurance training benefits provides technical and end-user training through two modalities: Software Assurance E-Learning and Software Assurance training vouchers (SATV).
With Software Assurance technical training, you get instructor-led, technical classroom training taught by a Microsoft Learning Partner. Developed by Microsoft experts, these in-depth IT courses are designed to help your staff deploy, manage, support and adopt new software.
With Software Assurance end-user training, you can help your employees gain skills to be more productive with their current software, or ready your employees for new versions with individual, self-paced interactive training delivered via Internet or intranet (e-learning) and/or demonstration sessions developed for larger groups by Microsoft experts.
