Microsoft will launch its new flexible training classes in Seattle this month.
The Seattle office of the company’s software division is holding the classes, which are designed to offer “practical guidance for employees on what to do if something doesn’t go as planned,” according to the company.
Microsoft is offering classes for employees in all the major city departments, as well as at Microsoft’s Redmond headquarters, Seattle City Light, and Microsoft’s office in Bellevue.
“We are committed to offering a flexible training model for all our employees,” said a Microsoft spokesperson.
“Employers can now plan flexible training for their employees using Microsoft Training Cloud, which enables businesses to share their training plans with each other and their customers.”
The classes are being held at Microsoft-owned Redmond, Redmond’s former campus, and Seattle’s new Microsoft campus, which is being built to accommodate the company, according to a Microsoft representative.
The classes will be available to everyone with Microsoft Training ID, Microsoft Workforce Mobility, or Microsoft OneDrive.
The company has also announced it is expanding its online training to the US and Canada.
Microsoft has long offered training classes through its Office 365 cloud service, which can offer a wide range of training programs.
Microsoft also has its own online training app called Microsoft OneClick, which offers classes through Microsoft OneLink, a cloud-based platform.
Microsoft plans to add a number of other services to the Microsoft Oneclick app, including its Microsoft Training API, Microsoft Cloud Training API and Microsoft Flexible Learning Platform.
“Microsoft has long been an innovator in education,” Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella said in a statement.
“Our goal is to make our training available to every single person in every corner of the world, and we’re doing that through flexible and affordable flexible training.”
