Flex On-Demand combines the flexibility of on-demand, self-study classes with the benefits of traditional instructor-led training (ILT). With a Flex On-Demand class you get streaming self-study content that matches our instructor-led classes. (Applicable
State and Local taxes may be added for On-Demand purchases, depending on your location.)

Flex On-Demand Learner Profiles
Flex On-Demand is a self-study training solution that was designed for two types of learners. First, Flex On-Demand is a great fit for experienced IT professionals who don't need a traditional multiple full days of training to upgrade their existing
skills. They can pick and choose topics to make the most effective use of their time. Second, Flex On-Demand is perfect for highly-motivated individuals who are new to a technology and need to space their learning over a period of weeks or months. These
learners can take their time and repeat sections as needed until they master the new concepts.

About Flex On-Demand
Our Flex On-Demand classes are self-study courses with 24/7 access via the internet. They include hours of content, hands-on labs using the actual software, and knowledge checks that were created by Microsoft to mirror the content found in the traditional
live instructor-led version of the course.

ONLC Extra
With each self-study Flex On-Demand class you may "audit" up to 50% of an actual class as an ILT listener. This option allow you to listen in and follow along to the equivalent live Instructor-Led Training (ILT) class. ILT Listeners do not have direct
access to the live instructor. ILT classes are held weekdays. Please contact ONLC to schedule.

Paying with Software Assurance Training Vouchers (SATV)
For Microsoft Enterprise customers paying with Software Assurance Vouchers, the cost of this class is 1 voucher--this includes access to the self-study materials. (Note: Individuals paying with SATV can have the option of auditing the entire class as an
ILT Listener.)
