Do we have to pay up front?
Yes. To be able to offer such drastic discounts and maintain our course schedule you must pay the full fee when joining the program.

How long do we have to take the training?
You have access to any MPN designated Iasa course for a total of 12 months from the end of the quarter you enroll. For example if you join in November you will have access to use your 20 sessions from November 2011 to December of the following year.

What if we don’t use all of our training sessions?
Training sessions do not roll over to the following year. We provide a robust course schedule to allow you maximum flexibility in developing your resources. Please use all of your course sessions in the allowed time frame.

What if we need more than 20 training sessions?
Iasa will work with you on direction of training for larger teams. We offer volume options including licensing for internal training, group discounts, etc.

Will there be any additional courses added?
We expect to add a variety of additional courses and will communicate updates to course offerings on a regular basis.

How technical are the courses?
Many of the courses such as software architecture are extremely technical. These courses create strategic technical resources who have equivalent business and technical skills.

How will this help me build new customers?
As business owners and executives you know the difference between deep technical skill and new business offerings. Architects help bridge the gap for your customers to understand and apply new technologies to business problems, helping you create business opportunities.

Can we attend other Iasa training sessions?
Yes. Iasa has built a dedicated schedule for the Microsoft Partner Network. If you need to attend a course held by Iasa outside of this schedule you may do so at a 50% discount off the retail price.
