 The value of TEC – Randy Franklin Smith 01:32

THE virtual Microsoft training event of the year – The Experts Conference (TEC) – is back with TEC 2021! Just like last year’s event, TEC 2021 will be 100% virtual and free. So you’ll get the advanced, practical Active Directory and Office 365 education TEC is known for, right from the comfort of your home.

Sponsored by the leaders who have helped move, manage and secure over 336 million Active Directory users – Quest Software, TEC 2021 gives you the opportunity to expand your knowledge by connecting with Microsoft MVPs, industry and Quest experts, and of course, your peers. Join in-depth training tracks on Hybrid Active Directory Security, Office 365 and/or Migration & Modernization.

Agenda

TEC 2021 offers educational breakout sessions led by technical and industry experts, as well as Microsoft MVPs and your peers. We’ll be offering numerous sessions from which you can create your own unique experience.

The agenda is currently being finalized. Check back for updates.

Each session is eligible for 1 CPE credit and each full keynote session is worth 1 CPE credit. If you attend both keynotes and all the live sessions in a track, you’ll earn 10 CPE credits for two days.
