What differentiates Opsgility from other training companies?
What really differentiates us from the crowd is our content. It is updated constantly and it is designed and built by industry recognized experts, not some Joe Blow that doesn’t know the topic. We have LOTS of hands-on labs for an immersive experience. We strive to stay on top of Microsoft Cloud technology and be right on the bleeding edge. We pay attention to the Microsoft Cloud roadmap so that we can have courses ready for when the new changes hit the market. Another thing that differentiates us from the others is that we deliver BOTH instructor-led training (on-site or virtual) as well as offer you and your team on-demand training.
Can any of your on-demand courses be taught by a live instructor?
Yes, our on-demand courses can be delivered by a live instructor and can be combined with other on-demand courses if needed for a truly encompassing learning experience of the technology your team needs to learn.
Can I pay for either your on-demand courses or instructor-led training by invoice or does it all need to be paid via credit card?
Yes, we are happy to invoice your company with Net 30 terms.
Does Opsgility accept Microsoft Software Assurance Training Vouchers (SATVs)?
Yes, we are a Microsoft Silver Learning Partner and can accept SATVs for any Microsoft Official Curriculum (MOC) Course.
What kind of additional training support can I expect from Opsgility?
Opsgility’s experienced account management team helps with training administration and class registration and our Customer Success Representatives are here to assist and assure that you and your team are getting the most out of your on-demand subscription service.

No, it is canceled immediately.
How is Opsgility’s online service different than other online learning services?
Opsgility focuses solely on Microsoft Cloud technologies for the Enterprise environment. Our focus is on depth, not breadth, so you won’t find a CSS class or a yoga class on our site. We believe in a hands-on approach to learning. You will find so much more than just videos to watch with our service. Almost all of our on-demand courses include multiple hands-on labs and all of our courses include knowledge assessments to measure the knowledge you have gained.
How can I get a course completion certificate after I finish a course?

If I already have an individual subscription but want to create a new business subscription for my team, how do I set this up without losing my account’s existing data?
You can create a business subscription using the same email address used for the individual subscription so you can keep your account’s data. We recommend that you create the new business subscription first, and then proceed with canceling your individual subscription. You should not lose any data as long as you use the same email address for both accounts.
Can I sign up for a business subscription if I have less than 5 users?
Yes, you can sign up for a business subscription and access all the team management tools that come with this type of subscription. However, your price per user will be at the individual user rate until you extend your subscription to 5 users or more.

Once you have completed a module, click on the Lab name to see step-by-step instructions.
Who do I contact if I have any issues with the site?
How can I stay up to date on the new training classes coming up?

7 days from the day you begin the subscription, unless you have a discount code for a longer trial.
Will I receive a receipt each month for my subscription? How is this receipt sent?
Yes, you will receive a receipt each month via email.

We are considering offering MOC courses on-demand. If you are interested in this please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Can I manage more than one business subscription with the same account?
Yes, you can manage multiple subscriptions under one account login as long as you are set at the subscription manager on each of the accounts you wish to manage.

You can also check up on an individual team member by going to the Team Members page and selecting the View Activity option under the Activity pull down menu next to the specific team member you are wanting to view.
How do I rate each class?
Click on the 1-5 choice of stars, 1 being lowest in satisfaction and 5 being greatest.
Do I need my own Azure, Office 365, or Dynamics CRM online subscription for hands-on labs with on-demand classes?
Once I activate my subscription, which training course should I start with?
This depends on what areas you are looking to get training on and the level of your technical expertise, but we usually recommend that you start with several of our introductory classes. You can also reference our recommended learning paths featured on the courses page.
How long does a typical instructor-led training course last?
If the course is onsite the typical length for a course is 3 – 5 days depending on subject.
What’s the schedule like for a typical class?
Typically the schedule is 9 AM – 5 PM with a morning and afternoon break and an hour long lunch break.
What’s the minimum number of users to sign up for on-site training?
If we’re doing an on-site training we charge by the day, not by the student. The maximum number of students per trainer is no more than 20, but 15 students or less is ideal for the best experience.
What sets the in-person training apart from the virtual training?
With on-site training, students are all in the same room and get to interact closely with each other. Virtual training is better for more dispersed teams. If your team is in different regions they can all come together for the same training course and it is more flexible as we can work with you on creating a flexible schedule (including partial days) to accommodate your team.
Do you offer any training packages?
Do I need my own Azure subscription for instructor-led (live) training?
No, Opsgility will provide Azure subscriptions for your students to take the course.
