New engaging and cohesive Power Up curriculum

The Microsoft Power Up Program – a self-paced upskilling program, launched in 2022 to help non-technical professionals gain marketable skills using the Microsoft Power Platform – takes learning to the next level with a cohesive video-based curriculum that spans only seven weeks.

Recognizing the demand for multimedia content, we partnered with Microsoft MVPs Rory Neary and Charlie Phipps to create engaging videos that not only simplify complex concepts, but also make the learner experience more dynamic and immersive. Each course follows the same business through real-world scenarios with demos and hands-on exercises for learners to gain skills and build solutions using Power Apps, Power Automate and Power BI.

This structured approach not only enhances comprehension but also equips learners with tangible skills that can be applied immediately in their professional endeavors. By focusing on key areas, the program has been shortened from 12 weeks to seven, saving valuable time without sacrificing quality.

Special thanks go to Microsoft Power Platform advocates, April Dunnam and Renee Nobel who shared their expertise and to Power Up Program champs who contributed with feedback and reviews over the last 1+ year to make this significant improvement.

Easy access to a comprehensive Development Environment

In addition, the program now offers simplified and instant access to a comprehensive development environment for Power Up Program learners to explore and experiment with the Power Platform in a sandbox environment, fostering creativity and innovation.

Introducing App-In-A-Day (AIAD) workshops for Power Up learners

As an added incentive, participants of the Microsoft Power Up Program can now sign up for partner-led “App in a Day” virtual workshops. These workshops, conducted by industry experts and Microsoft partners, provide invaluable insights and practical guidance to supplement the core curriculum. By attending these workshops, learners can gain deeper insights into application development and further enhance their skills in leveraging the Power Platform for business solutions.

These enhancements introduced to the Microsoft Power Up Program mark a significant milestone in the ongoing quest to empower individuals with the skills needed to thrive in today’s digital economy. By embracing video-based learning, streamlining the curriculum, and offering personalized experiences, the program continues to set new standards of excellence in virtual education.
