New training resources for Microsoft Teams admins and IT Pros on MS Learn

As organizations, big and small, across the world rely on Microsoft Teams to help enable hybrid work for all their employees, our goal is to help make sure IT Professionals and Teams admins are up to the task. To help you get ready to deploy and manage Microsoft Teams in your organization and deliver the experiences that meet the needs of your users, we have created new Teams training courses and interactive product how-to guides designed to quickly ramp up your Teams admin knowledge base.

At Microsoft Ignite last month, we introduced a number of new Microsoft Teams role-based learning paths, learning modules, and interactive product experiences that are available at MS Learn.

MS Learn provides free, online training that you can work through at your own pace to build skills and earn certifications. Interactive product how-to guides are a hybrid of traditional hands-on labs and click-thru demos that do not require a sandboxed environment for training.

If you need help figuring out where to start your learning journey or just want to browse the new Teams learning content, check out the new MS Learn landing page for Microsoft Teams and the new interactive product how-to guides for Microsoft Teams admins.
