As you probably know – the Microsoft EPM University offers beside of other learning and certification resources a comprehensive 4 to 5 days educational package for customers and partners who want to quickly ramp-up with EPM solution via rich instructor led online experience. The courses are designed to build and enhance the knowledge to successfully plan, deploy, configure and extend Microsoft Office EPM. Participants get access to EPMU’s virtual classroom environment including a professional instructor and hosted computer environment to run the course.

We have listened to your feedback and we are making changes in the way the EPM University courses are being delivered the second half of this calendar year.  Please carefully review the changes. If you would like to register for any remaining courses - click here for details.

How do I take any of 4 EPM University classes in the second half of calendar year 2009?

All courses will be available as pre-recorded on-demand WebCasts in summer 2009 – so you could tune any of the EPM University courses anytime based on your availability and convenience, no registration fees

· The EPMU courseware will be available to EPM Partners and to Microsoft Certified Partners for Learning Solutions (CPLS) so they can easily deliver these trainings – this brings higher flexibility – e.g. partners can deliver the trainings as virtual or in-class, also CPLS partners may use Software Assurance vouchers to cover the cost of the training

· A new course focusing on migration from Project 2003 to 2007 will be available later in the summer as pre-recorded on-demand WebCast – this is a hot topic and we are working on a new training course that would cover all aspects of migration to Project Server 2007

· No EPMU courses will be scheduled for the second half of 2009 by Microsoft
