Free MS Azure Courses with Microsoft’s ESI Programme

The Microsoft ESI Learner Experience Portal (LxP) gives you one-stop access to a variety of free MS Azure learning choices: virtual Microsoft instructor-led training, guided self-paced learning (MS Learn), and free certification exams until 30 June 2021.

The LxP is a single place where you can discover skilling opportunities aligned to your role and expertise for free. New virtual instructor-led training is regularly updated in the portal and offered on a first-serve basis so check back regularly if you do not see the course you want to take and be sure to join the waiting lists for the courses you are interested in that are fully booked. You are competing with other Universities for seats.

Navigate to the Microsoft ESI Learner Experience Portal ( and log in using your and NOT your work email address as it states.

  1. Choose 'Microsoft Delivered Courses' for live courses
  2. Choose the role(s) and time zones that work best for you (GMT +1 has loads more choices than just GMT)
  3. See what courses are available
  4. Choose a course or join the waiting list for a particular course you want (that way MS will know demand and deliver another course)
  5. Check back regularly as they add more courses all the time

Please see supporting documents for guidance and troubleshooting the MS ESI Programme. You can also contact MS directly for assistance through their portal.
