Microsoft CRM Dynamics Programme

Microsoft & SureSkills have identified an increasing need for more technical resources within the community. With cloud consumption being at the forefront of Microsoft’ minds, having a sufficient supply of quality engineers is vital. Microsoft understands there is a need to address this issue in the quickest manner possible in order to meet the current markets demand and future potential. 

Working in partnership with Microsoft, SureSkills has designed a structured programme aimed at university graduates and junior employees. This programme provides participants with professional training, industry recognised certification and the practical skill set to ensure that they can progress to become a valuable member of their team, delivering return on investment to the business in the most effective, efficient and economical way. 

This programme focuses on giving the participants an understanding of Microsoft and a specialised area of expertise in CRM Dynamics to be applicable to their job roles and develop the skills and techniques associated with effective service delivery in this dynamic environment.
