Remaining upskilled in any field can be a challenge. Within Dynamics CRM, AX, GP or Dynamics NAV the constantly evolving technology and ever-changing end-user expectations means that practitioners need up-to-the-minute knowledge and practical skills.
This means Dynamics professionals require training resources that are available 24/7. Here are some of the best options if you want to be ahead of the curve.
- The Microsoft Dynamics customer portal
A fantastic place to start is the official Microsoft Dynamics customer site for the UK. There, you’ll find a full resource of e-learning materials that can be filtered by CRM, AX, GP and NAV, enabling you to drill down to the relevant courses.
Select a learning plan and research the necessary requirements for certification and then start learning. All of the resources available are for Dynamics customers only, so you will need to sign in to the customer portal using your Windows Live ID, Microsoft Employee account or your Organisational account.
There are plenty of useful channels on YouTube for CRM or Dynamics ERP professionals. Examples include:
- CRM Dynamics
- Hosk’s Microsoft Dynamic CRM Development
- This Dynamics AX 2012 Module training series
- This Dynamics GP playlist
- This Dynamics NAV playlist
Work through a series of tutorials or pinpoint the specific solution to a problem you’re facing. Either way, YouTube tutorials are a great way of upskilling.
Help also comes in audio form. Podcasts like CRM Audio and the Enterprise Software Podcast offer a valuable snapshot of the CRM and ERP industry, providing industry-spanning news and diving deep into technical problems.
Webinars are used throughout the digital world due to their effectiveness in highlighting the learner’s concerns and the tutor’s ability to directly answer questions in real-time.
A fantastic webinar resource is the Microsoft Events page, where you can filter the events to display webinars only. Plan these into your calendar and ensure you set an alert so you don’t forget to be online at the right time. A good tip to help you make the most of a webinar is to prepare a list of questions before the event. These will help you maximise your learning.
