We want you to feel comfortable, not just in presenting the material, but in your ability to customize it for your company’s needs.

This set of five modules will give you and your team the core pieces needed for bringing Information Workers up to speed for daily use of SharePoint.

Why is Doing This?

If this offer is so good for you, what’s in it for me, Mark Miller? My business is delivering live online training. That’s what I do for a living. Why am I apparently willing to give my livelihood away?

The typical SharePoint Information worker is not taking workshops for three reasons: training is perceived as being too expensive, it is too time consuming for their schedules, they don’t know where to look or who to trust for training. Surprisingly, the third one is larger than you might think. Because of this, certified in-house trainers are the best people to deliver timely, relevant topics within their own company when it comes to basic SharePoint Information Worker training. 

Pushing entry level training to the in-house level makes companies better equipped to deliver relevant, contextual training to the people who will benefit the most: Information Workers.  By offering to train and certify an in-house trainer, becomes a hero to your company, remains the first company of choice when advanced SharePoint training is needed, and opens up time for us to develop more material for our core audience.

The audience for live online workshops is the Site Manager, Site Collection Manager and Power User who must maintain multiple SharePoint sites and support the SharePoint Information Workers in their company. Site Managers and Site Collection Managers; that’s my core audience. I will continue to provide live online workshops for this group. has about 20 sessions in the next two months focused exclusively on topics for Site Managers and Site Collection Managers: No Assembly Solutions, Tricks and Traps, Information Architecture, jQuery for Everyone, and a couple other surprises coming in the next few weeks.

If I can help develop a certified in-house trainer for your company, it will help me keep lazer focus on my core audience while helping you get buy-in from from your largest SharePoint user base, the Information Worker. We both win: you become a SharePoint SuperStar at your company and you trust me when you need SharePoint training for yourself or your Power Users. 

Business Motivation

The cost for sessions in the Train the Trainer series is less expensive than the licensing fee I usually charge for these sessions, much less for the training. How can I afford to do it this way?

It’s simple: there is a broad audience of readers and followers who trust me because of what the contributing authors and I are providing here at It is humbling when I think about it: over 6600 people have asked to be on the Weekly Newsletter list, there are another few thousand on the RSS feed and now a couple hundred following everything I say on Twitter!

The attendance and participation in the live online workshops this year has been pleasantly shocking! Last year I was on the road about 20 weeks out of the year. By moving my business model online, I now have access to thousands of people I wouldn’t normally be able to reach.

Instead of being dependant upon finding large companies to pay for my services and expenses, I now have direct access to the people who actually need SharePoint training, who find out about me through word of mouth,, Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, SharePoint Saturdays and through the Weekly Newsletter.

So yes, I am willing to do Train the Trainer sessions, give away my material and provide help to in-house trainers because I think it’s a way to continue to grow my business and build a larger community of evangelists.

Please note: The training material, presenter resources and on-demand recordings are for in-house use, only, and may not be distributed or used for public or commercial use.


Attend the live online Train the Trainer Sessions and becoming certified as your company’s in-house SharePoint trainer. I’ll supply the material and the expertise, you provide the in-house training.

What I am offering is the chance for your company to save tens of thousands of dollars in consulting trainer fees. You become your company’s SharePoint SuperStar and I gain your trust as the goto company for live online SharePoint training.  

I would very much appreciate it if you would pass the word to anyone you think might be interested in acting as an in-house trainer for SharePoint at your company. I have the material, resources and the expertise for creating a top-notch, in-house SharePoint trainer. Let’s work together to get it done.

I look forward to seeing you in the sessions.
