Free Microsoft Training courses
Microsoft has revamped its highly successful Virtual Academy website with a more dynamic and interactive homepage and some great free Microsoft training courses - here are five of our favorites.
Microsoft has scored a lot of praise for its Virtual Academy website, which offers registered users free access to hundreds of IT-related training courses. Now, the Microsoft Virtual Academy (MVA) is back in the spotlight with a totally redesigned version of the MVA website.
The new MVA website includes a great new homepage that makes it much easier for visitors to jump to the different tech categories containing the training they're looking for. The homepage contains links to the RSS feeds that list MVA's newest and most popular courses. The page also displays the latest tweets from the MVA Twitter feed (@MSVirtAcademy) and has links to all of the various MVA social networking pages, including the YouTube channel. It even displays the most current post from the MVA blog.
Most impressive is the global friendliness of the new MVA website. The site is now available in ten different languages, including French, Japanese, Spanish Latin America, and Simplified Chinese.

I'm assuming your looking for MS Office training.
There is quite a bit of free training. Start here:
Go down aways and select the 2003 tab (even if you have an earlier version that 2003 you can still do the training - you just can't do the practice sessions). Or if you have 2007 select that tab.
I find them easy to follow and informative.
