Microsoft Dynamics Accounting Training

by Lindsey Thompson

Microsoft, well-known for its computer programs for everyday consumers, also offers business and specialty products. The Microsoft Dynamics GP software helps small and mid-sized businesses with financial management, human resources manufacturing, supply chain management, compliance and IT management, according to Microsoft.

Where to Find Training

Training for Microsoft Dynamics GP comes from several sources, including Microsoft itself. Training from Microsoft takes place in a traditional classroom setting at training centers located across the country. Classroom training includes both instructor-led teaching with a teacher present and virtual instructor-led teaching with the instructor teaching from a remote location. Microsoft also partners with Customer Source to offer online training. Several third-party sources also offer training for Microsoft Dynamics, including private companies such as Websan.

What Is Involved

In-person training classes typically take one to three days to complete, with online classes taking a little longer because students can work on their own time and at their own speed. Students can register for the classes online through the Microsoft or third-party websites, at which time they must also pay the class fees. Fees vary depending on the class, with most Microsoft in-person classes costing $595. Some classes come with prerequisites like basic knowledge of Microsoft Windows and Microsoft SQL Server, as well as a working knowledge of accounting principles.
