What is the Microsoft Power Platform Upskill program? 

The program was designed by 1ClickFactory and Microsoft to help Microsoft Dynamics Partners from the Central & Eastern European region* get up to speed with the Power Platform by providing the specific training and knowledge-sharing that is required for a smooth start. The program consists of the following stages:

  • Introduction to the Power Platform Upskill program and my Power Platform opportunity (Duration: 45 minutes). This is a free session that’s open to all Microsoft Dynamics Partners who may be interested in the program. Not only will you get introduced to the program in more detail during the session, but you will also learn the key components of a successful Power Platform practice with real business case examples (citizen developer enablement, solutions, process automation). You can review the recording of the introductory session here.

  • Getting the team ready for certification and Power Platform product readiness (September 2021):
