The adoption of Microsoft AI has been accelerating at an unprecedented pace over the past year. As the demand for AI solutions continues to grow, partners have a unique opportunity to be at the forefront of this transformation and help their customers unlock the full potential of new technology.  

With the rapid evolution taking place in this space, organizations must prioritize continuous learning and empower their employees with the necessary skills to understand and leverage AI and other advanced technologies. Microsoft continues to offer our partners ongoing opportunities to upgrade and expand their technical knowledge.  

Over the coming months, we will hold Cloud Week events, sales enablement sessions, and in-depth workshops on building AI apps in Azure, using Copilot for Microsoft 365, strengthening IT security, and more.  

We want to equip partners with access to and familiarity with our technology to help create AI-enabled, consumer-centric solutions that address the needs of your customers, no matter your size or stage of business development. Whether you’re an engineer who designs AI and cloud solutions or you work directly with customers on selling such solutions, we have sessions designed to add to your skills and overall knowledge. 

Providing training for all levels of expertise 

Microsoft Technical and Sales Enablement sessions are designed to meet you wherever you are on your skilling journey—from introducing you to a new IT area to exploring advanced topics. With the hands-on knowledge gained from these training offerings, you can update your skills in AI and other evolving technologies or build expertise for in-demand roles within your organization.  

After completing training sessions, learners can earn Microsoft Certifications by passing exams that include questions reflecting real-world challenges faced in specific roles. We offer flexible training and certification courses with both on-demand and live sessions convenient for a variety of time zones.  

Upcoming skilling enablement offerings and events  

Microsoft enablement offerings and workshops planned for the coming months will cover a variety of advanced technologies, sales strategies, and ways to integrate AI into business solutions. These include Cloud Weeks for Partners that provide free solution-focused, blended skilling experiences. Five days of virtual training sessions will help technical learners prepare for role-based certifications that meet Microsoft AI Cloud Partner Program skilling requirements.  

Additionally, Sales Enablement sessions are offered during these weeks. Sessions are flexible and include instructor-led courses, on-demand labs, and both live and offline Q&As with Microsoft-certified experts:

Sales Enablement training for partners trains sales professionals on how to position and sell Microsoft Cloud solutions to customers. Sales learners can dive into conversation starters across the Microsoft Cloud, including the latest AI capabilities from both business and technical aspects, and best practices with selling, deploying, and adopting Microsoft Copilot solutions. In addition, learn to identify business opportunities, address pain points, and accelerate the customer journey.  

These comprehensive, live training sessions are offered with optimized start times for different time zones and are recorded for on-demand playback with a variety of closed-caption language options.
