I am pleased to let you know that we are planning to run a Partner Dexterity training class in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia for the week of the 13th to 17th August 2012.
The trainer for this five (5) day Dexterity I class will be none other than me. It has been a while since I last ran a class, so it will be great to produce a new batch of "Dexperts". The last couple of trainings I ran were in Melbourne, Australia in 2007 and Kuala Lumpur in 2004.
So before you say that Dexterity is a dying language and that learning it is not worthwhile, let me dispel some myths for you....
So, now you have plenty of reasons to send a team member to join the class. This is open to all Partners, but I suspect that organisations local to the region would be most interested (Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Indonesia, etc.).
The cost for the training involves two components to cover the costs of my time and the travel, accommodation & other expenses:
You should be able to check your advisory hours in the Microsoft Partner Network (MPN) Portal under Support >> My Support and Benefits. If you need to purchase advisory hours, please discuss this with your Partner Account Manager (PAM) or your Microsoft contact.
The training was requested Partners and while Microsoft is facilitating the training, the actual organisation, payments and logistics are being handled by an external agency.
If you are interested in attending, please contact Tania Budiman at firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible. We need to finalise the numbers next week by Friday 13th July 2012. Please register early to make sure we get the numbers needed to run the course.
This course is a must for anyone wanting to get started in the Microsoft Dynamics GP development world. See point 3 in my blog posting on How to get started with Dexterity.
PS: The training will be using Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 and Dexterity version 11.0. The manuals are from version 9.0, but everything in them about Dexterity still applies. The agenda and summary of the course is attached to the bottom of this post.
so basically the cost for an attendee would be :
Time: 40 Partner Advisory Hours per organisation (limit of 2 attendees per organisation).
Expenses: RM2,485 (Malaysia Ringgit) per attendee. RM2485 comes to approximately US$780.
+ traveling (airplane), hotels and lunch for the attendee
Yes, if you don't live in Kuala Lumpur, you would also need to pay the additional Travel, Accomodation and food expenses.
Are you going to send someone?
We already have 11 attendees registered. So the training is going ahead. My flights and accommodation is booked.
We can only squeeze a few more people in, so if you are interested... Register now.
The class starts today. Looking forward to meeting the attendees and getting started.
