Directions' Microsoft Compete

Directions Training's Microsoft Compete

At Directions, learning doesn't stop in the classroom. We believe in continuous learning. This is why our Microsoft training comes with exclusive offers that help you learn, understand and implement your new skills immediately after class. As a Microsoft Gold Learning Partner, we believe it's important to provide you with expert instructors and post class training resources to fulfill your ongoing learning needs.

For one whole year - here are the additional benefits you will receive with your training:

Indexed Class Recordings: Need to refresh your memory on a module covered in class? Our class recordings enable you to search or navigate within your session's content, exercises, discussions and chats for reinforced learning. They can be accessed at your convenience 24x7.

Microsoft Practice Labs:  Practice what you learned in class. Cloud lab access is offered during the course and post course completion for up to one year.

Unlimited Course Retakes: Our courses pack a lifetime of learning into a multi-day training event so it’s natural to wonder if you will “get it” all the first time. If you leave class with any gaps in your understanding of a topic, Directions offers you the opportunity to retake the course you registered for at no charge for up to 12 months.

Unlimited Courseware Version Upgrades: When you take a course using Microsoft Official Curriculum (MOC), you will get updates and revisions of that digital MOC textbook at no charge for the life of that course.

Instructor Mentoring and Support: Directions' instructors are dedicated to making sure our training results in accelerated end user adoption and measurable improvements in business performance. Have a question after class that’s preventing you from using the new skills you learned? Our instructors will be available to answer any questions you have.
