I have completed a number of courses via edX, an online training platform originally founded by Harvard and MIT in 2012.
The model of learning is easy, flexible and self-paced and best of all, the courses are generally all free. That said, if you wish to certify your knowledge and training you can pay for the exam and certification to provide evidence of professional development and proven skills in a certain area.
This morning I was made aware of a course providing training in the management of Microsoft Teams:

Given the course is being run by product managers of Skype and Teams from within Microsoft itself you know you’re getting the best practice guidelines for managing Teams in your Institution. Again, you can sign up for the course here.
