    Hi Allen,

    I'm not sure if you are affiliated with a partner. If so, your employer might have a subscription for the Dynamics Learning Portal: https://mbspartner.microsoft.com/
    If not, you can read a lot on internet. E.g. Microsoft Docs and there are a lot of blogs available. If you still have interest in AX 2012, you can also buy a book called "Inside Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3".
    Of course, you can also search for a training partner in your region.
