Azure AD Connect – expert training, resources and tools

Building on our long history of expertise in Microsoft Identity Manager (MIM), we at Oxford Computer Training have made it our business to become world-leading experts in Azure AD Connect. We offer a five-star rated Azure AD Connect Masterclass, and a range of free resources such as webinar recordings, blogs and tools.

Azure AD Connect is primarily a synchronization service which runs between AD and Azure AD. Although it looks a lot like MIM, they are very different animals – but, just like MIM, it is a powerful and complex technology!

Millions of identities now rely on Azure AD Connect

As more identities move to a hybrid cloud environment, Azure AD Connect is becoming an ever more crucial component of organizational infrastructure.

In collaboration with some of our friends – including Andreas Kjellman (formerly MIM and Azure AD Connect Program Manager for Microsoft, and the person who wrote Azure AD Connect in the first place – we now offer our expertise to you, so you too can take full advantage of Azure AD Connect in your enterprise.

Learn how to make the most of Azure AD Connect in our 3-day Masterclass, instructor-led in the classroom or via Skype in 3 days, or study it online in your own time. It’s the only comprehensive, structured training course for this complex and powerful technology. Chris C, an Australian consultant, who took our 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.
