SharePoint 2013 / Office 365 / SharePoint Online Power User Course

Our 4 day Power User course is the definitive end user training in South Africa!  If you are battling to get your users to adopt SharePoint, this is the course to put them one.  If you have been tasked with managing your team site for your department, this is the course to be on.  If you are new to SharePoint and want to know what it can do, this is the course to be on. You will learn skills here that you can use for the rest of your life, regardless of any job changes.  We teach you to ask the right questions, then empower you to find your own answers. This course ensures a consistent message is given to all staff members thereby improving the collaboration standards across the board.

Why 4 days? There is a lot to learn!  This is not a pure technology course; here you will learn business analysis, project management, communication, document management, social media, Office productivity tips as well as how SharePoint can fit into your world effectively.  The technology does not operate in isolation to the rest of the business systems and the change management component in SharePoint must not be under-estimated.  We are asking people to change everything about the way they have been working.  It’s a process that must be handled with sensitivity and understanding whilst ensuring relevance to people’s day jobs. You can’t do that in 2 days.

We also know that people seldom get the opportunity to apply the skills they have learnt during training; so scheduling the days once a week gives people time to put what they have learnt into practice in bite size chunks they can handle, then come back with business relevant questions to be addressed in the follow up sessions. This means extra value is gained from the course as people address their specific business requirements.
