Proactive training and advisory sessions are an integral peice to maximising the value of your Microsoft Premier Support agreement.  They allow you to take an preemptive approach to IT management by learning the latest features and advances with the technologies you use to help your organisation thrive.  Premier Support in Ireland offers two primary types of proactive trainings:

  1. Workshops which provide a comprehensive, holistic view of a technology/application with a general focus genre (e.g. SQL Server Reporting Services).  These workshops usually take place over 3 -4 days.
  2. Chalk 'n Talks which provide a condensed, specifically targeted approach to common challenge areas within a technology/application (e.g. SQL Server 2008 Database Mirroring).  These Chalk 'n Talks usually run 1 to 1.5 days.

Premier Support Ireland maintains an active catalogue of proactive training sessions which are scheduled based on feedback and requests from customers like you.  Want to know what is currently on offer?  Mark this blog link to your favourites, and click the catalogue link icon for 24/7 access to our proactive offerings (see the graphic below for help finding the icon on our homepage):
