Centriq Training announced today that Microsoft is extending its free SQL Server 2008 offer until September 30. 2009. This is a great opportunity to receive training, acquire certification on Microsoft SQL Server technology and get a free copy of the Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Standard Edition so you can gain hands-on experience. According to Microsoft, “Expert IT training and certification are more important than ever in a tough economy because they can help companies boost productivity and get the most from their technology investments”. A recent IDC Performance Impact Study* found that teams that met most or all of their business objectives typically had twice the amount of training as teams that achieved only partial success. To participate in this offer, call Centriq Training and enroll in and attend any one of the following  Microsoft SQL Server 2008 courses before September 30, 2009, and you will receive a fully licensed copy of SQL Server 2008 Standard Edition with one client access license (CAL).
