Azure Courses Retiring from SATV Program

As a Microsoft® Certified Partner for Learning and Volume License Agreement customers, LRS® Education Services accepts Microsoft Software Assurance Training Vouchers for qualifying Microsoft classes that we offer.

Microsoft recently announced it will retire its Software Assurance Training Voucher (SATV) program over a multi-year transition period. Microsoft is making significant investments to increase the alignment and quality of training offerings and certifications from which customers can benefit. As soon as we have more information regarding the new programs, we will communicate those to you!

February 1, 2020

The Azure portfolio will be removed from the SATV catalog in its entirety.

February 1, 2021

The last day to create training vouchers for new/renewing contracts.

June 30, 2021

By this date your training vouchers MUST be created, or you will no longer have access to them. Vouchers are valid for 180 days after created by customer but DO NOT need to be assigned to a training class by this date.

December 31, 2021

Last day for training to be completed.

If you are an existing client of LRS Education Services using SATV for training, your Account Manager will be contacting you to develop a plan to use your remaining days before the deadline of December 31, 2021.

If you have not used your training vouchers with us in the past, we’d be happy to help you moving forward! Here is a link to scheduled Microsoft Official Courses that are SATV eligible via instructor-led training (in-person or using our virtual technology). Microsoft Official Azure courses will continue to run as scheduled!
