SBS 2008 – Subsidised Partner Training

I’ve heard from a few fellow SBSC Partners that when they went to apply for the subsidised Microsoft Small Business Server 2008 Training, aimed at UK Partners and taking place in London in November that they found the event totally booked up. Ouch – you snooze, you lose! 🙂

The good news is, an additional set of dates (also located in London) have now been announced – full details can be found at the UK SBSC blog – Small Business Server 2008 – New Partner Readiness Course (1st – 3rd December).

I’ve also raised with UK SBSC Manager Emily Lambert the possibility of whether there could be any similar training events outside of London for us partners t’North of the capital – and the good news is that this is now very much in consideration! With any luck Microsoft will be replicating the Training Event in Birmingham and perhaps even Manchester and another City outside London.

If you’re interested in such training then it might be a good idea to leave a comment below or get in touch so we can let Microsoft know we think additional regionalised sessions such as these are a good idea!

Incidentally, there is a ton of links to other Training Resources for MS Partners to be found at Emily’s blogTraining Available to UK Partners – so if you’ve not checked that out yet then what are you waiting for!

    I\’m suprised that the 2nd course QA-IQ are hosting for this is in London.  London hotel accomodation is quite restrictive for some people with pricing and Birmingham is surely better for alot of people logistically.

    Paul – presumably, there must be an immediate demand for this course in London. But I agree, for those of us outside of London then a nice chunk of that subsidised training cost would be lost to travel and hotel costs when staying in the capital. Fingers crossed for those hoped for non-London events!
