HotSheetCalendarWelcome to the Hot Sheet, a schedule of in-person training, live webcasts, and partner calls for Microsoft US partners. Courses are organized by role and by date, and this post is updated as needed to provide you with about a six-week outlook.

In addition to the live training listed here, training recommendations in the new, interactive learning paths can help you meet MPN competency requirements; prepare for Certification exams, sales accreditations, or technical assessments; increase your Microsoft product and technology knowledge; and onboard new team members. Courses offered by Microsoft Learning Partners are listed on the Microsoft Tech Showcase.
