Today is a big day for Pluralsight customers interested in hardcore SharePoint training. We are excited to announce a new strategic content partnership with Critical Path Training, the leader in professional classroom training for Microsoft SharePoint products and technologies. Through this partnership Critical Path Training will publish their catalog of world-renowned SharePoint courses within the Pluralsight online training library.
Over the next several hours we’ll begin publishing our first set of Critical Path Training online courses, and by the end of the day, you will see a total of 33 new SharePoint courses added to the Pluralsight library! These new courses primarily cover SharePoint 2007 and SharePoint 2010 for developers, administrators, end users, power users, and web designers.
By end of year, we expect to release another 22 courses from Critical Path Training that will exclusively cover the SharePoint 2013 release.
Pluralsight subscribers will automatically receive access to all Critical Path Training online courses at no additional cost, illustrating the growing value of a Pluralsight subscription. Customers who attend Critical Path Training classroom events will also receive access to the Critical Path Training online courses (published at Pluralsight) at no additional cost, thereby offering students a compelling hybrid learning solution.
Although Critical Path Training offers an active schedule of in-person classes in various locations across the United States and via private onsite engagements, many developers around the world simply do not have the means to attend them. Now developers everywhere will have access to the Critical Path Training content without incurring the traditional costs required to attend a training event held in a distant location.
“I’m thrilled to have this new delivery option for our customers and to extend our reach to Pluralsight’s customers.” said Andrew Connell, Co-Founder of Critical Path Training. “We pride ourselves in our top-notch instructors but this presents scheduling challenges at times and also makes it hard to scale when we need to. This new on-demand offering rounds out our existing instructor-led training course offerings so our customers can get training on Microsoft SharePoint in any format at any time that works for them and allows us to scale up when necessary.”
Critical Path Training is a joint venture between SharePoint MVPs Ted Pattison and Andrew Connell. The company is dedicated to educating professionals on how to become successful with Microsoft’s SharePoint products and technologies. Their courses provide students with an objective viewpoint and key insights about SharePoint, its architecture, valuable best practices and essential coding techniques. Ultimately, Critical Path Training represents the quality you’ve grown to expect from Pluralsight.
Stay tuned for the new Critical Path Training course announcements coming later today!
