Member-only access to office hours
Leila and Reza will be hosting webinar style office hours for Academy members-only, for major time zones. We will be hosting office hours at least every 2 months. During office hours, we will address your most common questions. You can send us questions beforehand through our mailing list or forum, or if there is enough time, you can ask it online at the time of office hours. These meetings will be running under the GoToMeeting platform, and you can join online, or watch the recording later on.
Member-only access to a support mailing list
We will have a dedicated channel that you can come and ask your questions, from day to day support questions for our services and tools and websites, to the technical questions in the world of AI and Power BI. This would be through one of these technologies: Direct Mailing List, Slack channel, or Microsoft Teams. This will be available very soon. (The next few weeks).
Get certification for completed courses
Upon completion of a video course in our academy, you will get a certification issued by RADACAD.
Member-only discount on upcoming in-person training sessions
We have training courses (in-person or live) scheduled almost every month in major cities in the world. Academy members will receive a member-only discount to attend these sessions. There is no limit on the number of training sessions you want to register. However, the discount should be used only for the member. Depends on the session, date, time and location, the saving would be different. This can be for example a saving of almost $400 for a single 2-days training session.
Access to recording of all sessions
In addition to access to video courses, you will also have access to other recordings as below;
- Access to the recording of live training sessions we run through GoToMeeting time by time.
- Access to the recordings of conferences that we host and run (Difinity)
- Access to the recordings of Office Hours sessions
This will not include access to the recordings of conference sessions that RADACAD is not host or organizers, because in those cases, Organizer or host of that conference holds the right of any recordings for that conference.
Member-only Q&A forum access
We are working on creating an online forum for all members to join and connect with each other, and ask their questions. This can be also a knowledge base, later on, to search through topics needed. The Forum will be set up in the next few weeks.

I want to pass Microsoft Certifications, are the courses in this plan designed for that?
Answer: At the moment, we do not have a course designed exactly based on the agenda of Microsoft Certification. However, based on our experience (we have passed those certifications and we know what are areas of questions), we know that you will gain much more knowledge than what you need for passing the certification exams. That said, we are also planning to bring some certification path designs later into our courses.
Is there a trial plan?
Answer: No. However, you can purchase the minimum monthly plan, and then cancel it if you don’t want to go ahead. this way, you will pay only for a month of usage.
