To get started, you can register on the Microsoft website https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/trainingdays.  The course takes approximately 2 days (3-4 hours per day)

Once you have successfully registered, you will receive a confirmation email with details and links for attending the training according to the date and time registered, example below:
