On this accelerated 5-day Development, Extensions and Deployment for Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations course, you'll learn basic technical and developmental skills to customise Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Operations.

You'll leave us with an expertise covering the full breadth of knowledge required for developing and deploying Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations. You'll master skills including how to:

  • Manage development with Microsoft Visual Studio and Lifecycle Services (LCS)
  • Manipulate data and manage exceptions with X++

Using our unique Lecture | Lab | Review technique, your Microsoft Certified Trainer (MCT) will immerse you in the curriculum. This technique, which combines both theoretical and practical tasks, will accelerate your learning as well as provide you with the hands-on experience you'll need to apply your skills to the real-world.

You'll prepare for and sit exam MB6-894: Development, Extensions and Deployment for Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations at the Firebrand Training Centre. Don't pass the first time? Don't worry - you'll be covered by our Certification Guarantee.

If you're a technical consultant, programmer or IT professional tasked with customising Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations and Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Retail for your business, this course is ideal for you.

Seven reasons why you should sit your course with Firebrand Training

  1. You'll be certified in just 5 days. With us, you’ll be trained in record time
  2. Our course is all-inclusive. A one-off fee covers all course materials, exams, accommodation and meals. No hidden extras
  3. Pass first time or train again for free. This is our guarantee. We’re confident you’ll pass your course first time. But if not, come back within a year and only pay for accommodation, exams and incidental costs
  4. You’ll learn more . A day with a traditional training provider generally runs from 9am – 5pm, with a nice long break for lunch. With Firebrand Training you’ll get at least 12 hours/day quality learning time, with your instructor
  5. You’ll learn faster. Chances are, you’ll have a different learning style to those around you. We combine visual, auditory and tactile styles to deliver the material in a way that ensures you will learn faster and more easily
  6. You’ll be studying with the best. We’ve been named in Training Industry’s “Top 20 IT Training Companies of the Year” every year since 2010. As well as winning many more awards, we’ve trained and certified 125,505 professionals, and we’re partners with all of the big names in the business
  7. You'll do more than study courseware. We use practical exercises to make sure you can apply your new knowledge to the work environment. Our instructors use demonstrations and real-world experience to keep the day interesting and engaging


Other accelerated training providers rely heavily on lecture and independent self-testing and study.

Effective technical instruction must be highly varied and interactive to keep attention levels high, promote camaraderie and teamwork between the students and instructor, and solidify knowledge through hands-on learning.

Firebrand Training provides instruction to meet every learning need:

  • Intensive group instruction
  • One-on-one instruction attention
  • Hands-on labs
  • Lab partner and group exercises
  • Question and answer drills
  • Independent study

This information has been provided as a helpful tool for candidates considering training. Courses that include certification come with a certification guarantee. Pass first time or train again for free (just pay for accommodation and exams on your return). We do not make any guarantees about personal successes or benefits of obtaining certification. Benefits of certification determined through studies do not guarantee any particular personal successes.
