The participant agrees automatically to subsequently pay the course costs in the value of 20 000 SEK excl VAT if they are unable to successfully complete the chosen Azure example prior to the 31-05-2018. 

Required time investment:

Of course, the total training time required per attendee will vary based on the experience and the chosen track. Microsoft has summised the time requirement with the following statement ”Time varies from course to course and from participant to participant. But we designed the courses with a rule of thumb that a participant can do them around 4-6 hours a week in a timeframe."

These courses are presented in a suggested order to help you build your skills in the most appropriate way. 

What is MOOC?

MOOC is "Massive Open Online Course" and the format is used by universities around the world to provide knowledge to a broad audience. MOOC is a flexible way to learn new skills and provide quality educational experiences. MOOC consists of video-based learning sessions combined with knowledge reviews, practical exercises (in the case of the Data Science Program) and labs. 

Individual sections are often completed (also in the Data Science Program) with intermediate exams and confirmed with a "verified certificate of completion".

LLPA (Leading Learning Partner Association) are a part of the program from the start and worked together with Microsoft to develop optimizations and enhancements for you. The MOOC training experiences also include Q&A sessions, practice workshops, seminars and support.
