clip_image001Have we had any of you in suspense over what Summer School means for you? It’s basically a great incentive to sharpen the skills you use every day – and maybe pick up a few new technologies to add to your resume – all throughout the summer. It’s our Summer School Sweepstakes.

Each time you complete a course from our Summer School curriculum, which contains dozens of courses on topics like BPOS, Windows Server 2008, Exchange 2010 and Windows 7, you will receive an entry into a drawing. We’ll give away 20 prizes over July, August and September, so take multiple courses and increase your chance of winning.

We’ve listed the prize schedule and the curriculum below (bear with us – it’s a long list full of some great learning opportunities!) and we’ll keep you updated as new courses are added. The first prizes will be given away on July 24 – make sure you’re taking classes so you’re eligible! Happy Summer Schooling!
