Training

Learn how to make the most of Azure AD Connect on our Masterclass – the only comprehensive, structured training course for this complex and powerful technology.

We developed the Azure AD Connect Masterclass in collaboration with Andreas Kjellman (formerly MIM and Azure AD Connect Program Manager for Microsoft) and Jimmy Andersson (MVP Enterprise Mobility).

It’s available as a 3-day instructor-led course which you can attend in our UK or US classrooms or from anywhere via Teams/Skype. You can also take the course online in your own time.

Chris C, an Australian consultant, who took our Azure AD Connect Masterclass in 2019, said:

An awesome course. Although I have many years’ experience working with Microsoft synchronization technologies, there was something new and unexpected at every turn, that made the journey all the more worthwhile. There is so much more to Azure AD Connect that meets the eye or is covered in Microsoft documentation! This Masterclass effortlessly strips away Azure AD Connect’s veneer of simplicity to explore and demonstrate important technical details.
