Optimum has developed a suite of key user courses for Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012. These courses are aimed at people who will be involved in implementing Dynamics AX 2012 and want to get some hands-on experience and understanding of the system.
The courses will aim to give an overview of the system, key concepts and terminology, and key screens using a generic Dynamics AX 2012 implementation build.
The courses will not advise or discuss how best to implement Dynamics AX 2012 for any specific organisation, but will give delegates enough understanding of Dynamics AX 2012 in order to most effectively engage in subsequent discussions about implementation.
