Ted Pattison moved to Florida in late 2005 and opened Ted Pattison Group, a SharePoint training company targeting professional developers.

Before SharePoint 2007 was made available to the public, the technical team at the Ted Pattison Group had already delivered a SharePoint 2007 developer class to several hundred Microsoft internal resources, including the SharePoint Rangers and members of Microsoft Consulting Services.  Thus beginning the first of three SharePoint releases in a row that Ted Pattison and his team has been contracted by Microsoft to provide beta SharePoint training.

Just after Ted arrived in Florida, Andrew Connell joined the team. He quickly became a prominent course author and instructor for Ted Pattison Group with his leading expertise on Web Content Management and the SharePoint 2007 Publishing features.

In addition to Ted and Andrew, the instructional staff at Ted Pattison Group picked up several more of the industry’s most talented SharePoint MVPs including Scot Hillier, John Holliday, David Mann, Maurice Prather, Asif Rehmani and Matt McDermott.

With this incredible team of course authors and instructors, plus the promise of SharePoint 2010 looming on the horizon, the Ted Pattison Group was rebranded as Critical Path Training in May 2009.  The Critical Path Training logo of three triangles has become a common sight for SharePoint professionals watching Channel 9 videos, participating in public and private classes around the world, and attending sessions at the most popular technology conferences.

In 2015, Critical Path Training continues to strive to deliver the very best education for organizations using SharePoint on-premises, including planned future classes for those who will be migrating to SharePoint 2016.  Critical Path Training’s curriculum will also expand for those customers who are moving to the cloud, with an increased focus on related technologies such as Office 365 and Business Intelligence (BI).
