Free Online SQL Server MCM / MCSM Training Videos

OVERVIEW

SQLskills.com teamed up with Microsoft in 2010 to provide 40 hours of online training geared towards studying for the SQL Server 2008 MCM certification. These videos were designed to give you an overview of the breadth of subject knowledge required, plus some indication of the depth to which you needed to know it to pass the MCM certification. In September 2013, the MCM program was permanently canceled. In 2017, Microsoft started removing the MCM training videos and gave us permission to host some of them.

The remainder of this page gives links to some MCM videos, grouped together to match our IEPTO1 – IEHADR classes. Please be warned that these videos are not comprehensive and some are really out-of-date and contain information that’s no longer applicable to recent versions. For this reason, where an MCM video is no longer appropriate, a list of applicable Pluralsight courses is also provided.

For a deeper and richer learning experience, we provide more than 10 weeks of very popular, in-person training.
