Early Experts Study Group

Get Started as a Hybrid Cloud Early Expert!

In an increasingly multi-vendor, multi-hypervisor world, more and more IT organizations are using Microsoft Hyper-V, System Center and Microsoft Azure to augment existing virtualization and platform solutions.  With nearly two-thirds* of businesses on more than one virtualization platform today, adding Microsoft virtualization and cloud skills to your technical repertoire can improve your career options and prepare you to face new IT demands.

What is Early Experts?

Early Experts is a free, online study group for IT professionals who want to extend their knowledge on Microsoft Hyper-V, System Center and Microsoft Azure while preparing for official Microsoft certification exams.  We've organized our high-impact learning resources into online Knowledge Quests that include concise videos, prescriptive study materials and hands-on practice with real products. Complete each Knowledge Quest at your own pace and enjoy the flexibility to stop and review certain topics when you need more time.

Along your journey, you'll earn completion badges that you can share with others to showcase your new IT skills!

What if I have Questions?

You'll have access to a community of experts for each Knowledge Quest, so you can post questions and share study tips with your peers and our community of mentors.
