Microsoft on Demand Transition Information

Microsoft Official Courses On-Demand (MOC On-Demand) Transition – Extended by Microsoft

The MOC On-Demand self-paced online offerings are being retired as part of Microsoft Learning’s approach to keep certifications and training as relevant as possible. This approach includes consolidation of offerings and learning platforms. MOC On-Demand course offerings can be ordered through June 30, 2020 (extended from December 30, 2019). There is no change to any courses purchased prior to these dates. This means that any course and associated hosted labs purchased prior to these dates will continue to be supported through their license key activation and student use period. The final student use expiration date for all courses that are not already retired will be December 28, 2020.

Happy Holidays Gingerbread Man (photo)

Once again, the Holiday Season is here, and we will be donating to our 21st annual charity recipient!  For those of you not familiar with our tradition; in lieu of exchanging gifts at Christmas, we donate money to a charity recommended by our team. This year our chosen recipient is Crisis Nursery, part of Children’s Home & Aid.

Crisis Nurseries were developed through the Crisis Nursery Congressional Act of 1986 to provide holistic prevention and intervention services to families with young children, who were in crisis.

Opened in 1998, the Crisis Nursery serves children from birth through six years of age; their services are free to anyone in need.

The Crisis Nursery is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days per year.  Parents can use the Crisis Nursery as often as needed. The top reasons parents use the Crisis Nursery include the following: homelessness, domestic violence, mental health/substance abuse issues, home crisis, and for medical and other appointments.
