Planning Tool to Utilize Microsoft SATV at Centriq

August 30, 2015 in Corporate, Microsoft, News / by Sara Lamb

Microsoft Software Assurance coverage often includes free technical training. This means your organization may have Software Assurance Training Vouchers (SATV’s) that can be used to train your IT team for free.

These training vouchers can be used to provide technical training to your IT team at no out-of-pocket cost to you. But, SATV’s do expire at the end of your customer agreement, so don’t let them go to waste.

Centriq understands that it can be difficult to determine how best to utilize this free training benefit from Microsoft. To assist with that, we created a planning tool that includes all SATV eligible training classes.

Simply download our planning tool via the following link. Once you’ve determined the training classes you need, contact a Centriq Training Advisor to enroll in your desired classes utilizing your free training vouchers.
