Site offer The powers that be at El Reg have got together IT training network Internet Exchange to offer 50 London-based professionals - working for firms with 250 employees or less - the chance to enjoy some free Microsoft Certified Professional IT Training.

The reason for this sudden burst of generosity is that Internet Exchange has secured funding from the Learning and Skills Council and the European Social Fund to offer said freebie.

Internet Exchange explains:

Businesses in the capital now have the opportunity to train and develop their staff in recognised IT skills. The initiative is designed to help businesses improve in many areas such as by developing in-house talent and skills, staff retention and quality standards right down to bottom line impact. This programme equips companies with the necessary skills to deal with IT issues that would normally require expensive outside contractors.

Good stuff. How does it work?

Internet Exchange’s specialist experience in online training allows individuals to access the training at work, at home or at any of the 19 Internet Exchange locations in London. There are online tutors available 24 hours a day, and in-store trainers available at least six days a week. In addition to providing the training, Internet Exchange will be offering free Microsoft certification exams.

Simple as that. If you want to participate, email Marcin Lai right here, and there's more info on the Internet Exchange website. Happy learning. ®
