Rolled out last year, Cloud Platform University Online (CPO) is an interactive, scenario-based training, geared towards those in sales and pre-sales roles, that provides education on foundational elements of selling Microsoft cloud technology.
And due to the success we saw partners have with CPO last year, we’re bringing it back in 2016 with additional valuable updates and changes for partners.
To help our partners understand the CPO program and get more information on registration for Cloud Platform University Online training, we’ve broken it all down:

Cloud Platform University courses

Our CPO courses consist of videos, case studies, forum discussions, applied assignments, and feedback opportunities. Each course takes place over a four-week period, but, to minimize disruption to their daily work, participants can complete them at their convenience during the timeframe.
Upon completion, participants will receive a badge they can use on social media profiles, visually representing their sales expertise around Azure Solutions.
