OzforIaaSsquareOz for IaaS is a training program delivered by Microsoft Azure MVP’s that combines 300-level technical content with sales readiness information to prepare practice leads, solution architects, and delivery consultants to sell and deliver Azure Infrastructure solutions to customers. You can expect a four to five hour time commitment for each webcast you attend. This includes pre-reading, attending the live webcast, participating in the community, and lab work.

Join the Operation Azure Yammer group in the US Partner Community to participate in the conversation about the Oz for IaaS sessions and get the hands-on labs and other coursework.

Prior to attending, we recommend that you set up your Microsoft Azure subscription (a benefit of your MPN competency or Action Pack subscription) for the lab work. Or, you sign up for a free trial at http://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/pricing/free-trial/. You will receive a $200 credit for your first month. You can expect to run two to three virtual machines per week (you are not charged for VM’s that are not running).

If you did not participate in the Infrastructure as a Service training in October 2013, you can use the Partner Practice Enablement for Azure technical learning path to watch those modules and get additional training recommendations.
