Microsoft Teams Rooms Sales & Technical Partner Bootcamp

The rapid adoption of Microsoft Teams and the expected shift to hybrid work post-pandemic will increase demand for richer meeting rooms that accommodate remote and in-person participants as organizations return back to the office. This next phase represents a significant opportunity for partners to grow your businesses with value-added services such as infrastructure assessment, device deployment, user training, change management, ongoing management of the complete meeting environment, on-site support, and more.


To help prepare you, our partners, for the move to a hybrid workplace,
we’ve created a Microsoft Teams Rooms Sales & Technical Bootcamp, which will be delivered in multiple time zones.

Sessions include:

• MS-700 Certification prep training for administering and managing Microsoft Teams
