We are honored to receive the 2012 Windows IT Pro Editor's Best Gold Award for Training. In recognizing us for the Gold Award, the editors of Windows IT Pro cited our custom courseware, our objectivity, and the team of SharePoint MVPs who teach our classes as the reasons for selecting Critical Path Training for this award.
Here's what Windows IT Pro said in why we won it:
Critical Path Training employs Microsoft MVPs and recognized SharePoint experts, not trainers who have been told to "learn the subject area." They're well-known speakers and authors who are experienced at explaining concepts and demonstrating techniques. This training company offers courses on SharePoint 2013 and SharePoint 2010 for administrators, developers, and power users. It offers the courses in a variety of formats, including hands-on classes in 10 professional training facilities around the United States, online workshops, and private onsite classes. During the class, each student is given a preconfigured computer to complete lab exercises, so there's no need to bring a device or deal with configuration. Critical Path Training writes its own courseware (which includes industry best practices) and updates it frequently to reflect the latest techniques. The company website notes, "We are a third party that covers the good, the bad, and the ugly." Significantly, Microsoft recently hired Critical Path Training to create and deliver a hands-on developer training course for SharePoint 2013 developers.
This is quite a thrill because we not only stood out from other SharePoint training companies, but also from all training companies!
