SQLSoft3's "Hello World"

Business Speak

If you have ever taken a Microsoft technical training class to upgrade your skills, you are new, or getting a jump on the next great Microsoft software product, chances are you’ve probably taken it from SQLSoft3. In the past 20 years, over 50,000 IT Pros and Developers from companies of all sizes from enterprise to SMB have passed through their doors.

Microsoft has long considered SQLSoft3 to be one of their top training

partners. In fact, when Microsoft wants to train their own technical people, they frequently hire SQLSoft3 to create a custom technical training class for them. The same goes for many other organizations such as Boeing, Premera, Expedia and more.

What’s interesting about SQLSoft3 is while many companies offering training are running their classes the same way they have always done, SQLSoft3 has always prided itself by changing with the needs of their students and customers. The biggest example of this is their current lower pricing.

“We discovered that our live instructor-led classes were costing us less over the last couple of years, primarily by running them on the Web,” noted Mark Scott, CEO and Chief Catalyst. “The quality of the classes went up and the infrastructure costs went down. Plus, our students were able to take the classes from anywhere-even in their pajamas.”

Most amazingly, SQLSoft3 decided to pass the savings on to their customers rather than just banking it. This means that SQLSoft3 can still offer the high-quality technical training classes they are known for AND students can save over $1,000 on live instructor-led classes and $400 on MOC On-Demand classes off the old prices.

SQLSoft3 currently offers live instructor-led Azure, SQL Server, Identity Management, Windows 10, Windows Server, SharePoint, System Center, Developer / Visual Studio, Exchange, Skype, and Security training classes that they hold on the web. Then there’s the custom training events that I already mentioned.

Last, they are one of the first Microsoft Learning partners to offer the new MOC On-Demand training courses. MOC On-Demand training courses mirror the regular instructor-led classes in that it includes videos, all the same materials, and labs. The difference? MOC On-Demand is recorded so you can go at your own pace or even skip ahead to important areas. Need extra help? SQLSoft3 offers that too.

[BTW, I’ve secured a special discount for my SMB Nation readers from SQLSoft3. Enter the promo code SUMMER16 in the promo field in the checkout cart, and you’ll get an extra $100 off the price in the cart. Want a secret? If you are buying more than one class, buy them separately and you’ll get $100 off each class!]
