Microsoft Office 365 (Online) Conversion

Has your workplace recently changed to Office 365 for Business? This conversion course will help you get to grips with the Cloud and collaborative working, using Skype for Business, and OneDrive. We aim to combine technical training with exercises around smarter working and behaviour changes that can be prompted by new tools.

Please note that we will be using Office 365 for Business, rather than the standard Home version of Office.

This course can be delivered in the classroom or remotely via GoToTraining. Contact us for availability and pricing, or see our Live Online Learning page for our interactive 90-minute webinars that cover specific sessions. 

Course overview

What you will learn

This course will highlight the new features in the Office 365 for Business suite. You can look at what the Cloud means for the way you work, access the portal and all the 365 tools (particularly OneDrive) from multiple devices for more flexible working. Skype for Business can help you collaborate and communicate and, used wisely, it can reduce email overload.

After a customised solution for your team? Contact us for details and availability – we can deliver this at your offices or at our training centre as a half-day or full day of training, depending on your needs. We can create something more bespoke for your organisation either to include your particular setup or to emphasise other Office 365 tools – just let us know what you need. If you would like to learn more about SharePoint and setting up a SharePoint Library, please see our in depth two-day SharePoint Essentials course.

The Small Print

For Live Online Interactive Learning sessions (webinars)

The course will run remotely for a full day consisting of three 90-minute live online sessions with independent work in between. 

All learners will need to either install GoToTraining on their machines or use the Web App in a browser (either Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge are supported). Full technical requirements are on the GoTo websiteYour link will be included in your joining instructions once you have booked your place — if you haven't received this email then please contact our team.

Learners should log into the training session 10 minutes before the start time to ensure that they have downloaded and set up GoTo correctly. The course will start precisely on time and it may not be possible to go back over material missed by late arrivals.

Your active participation is expected: everyone will be heard and seen throughout, just as they would be if we were in a room together. To be heard, hear and seen you will need a microphone, speakers and camera – if you have a modern laptop that’s all you will need. Remember, you’ll need a quiet place to call from and a decent internet connection is a must.

Please ensure you read our Terms and Conditions before booking for our payment terms and cancellation policy.

For classroom sessions

The course will run from 10am to 4:45pm (lunch is served 1pm to 1:45pm — we offer a choice of 3 cold bowl dishes). Please be careful to arrive by 9:45am for registration and refreshments. The course will start precisely on time and it may not be possible to go back over material missed by late arrivals. If you arrive over 30 minutes late you may be asked to leave and attend another day.

We have made our training centre as safe as possible and will be limiting these sessions to just 4 people to ensure that social distancing can take place. You can learn more about what measures we have put in place on our Terms and Conditions page. We may need to cancel these dates if government advice changes or if there is not enough demand — in these instances we will host the session online, with the same date and timings.

Please ensure you read our Terms and Conditions before booking for our payment terms and cancellation policy.

The happy Guarantee

We want everyone to go away from our courses feeling as though they have learnt useful, practical skills that they can use straight away when they go back to work.

If you don’t feel that your training has been useful or if you are unhappy in any way, please get in touch with our Customer Services team within 30 days of the course. We will be happy to offer you additional support and training free of charge to help you to gain the skills you need, or if you’d prefer, a full refund.

Coronavirus Update

Due to current government guidelines we have temporarily closed our training centre in London. All of our staff are now working remotely, and all classroom training has been postponed while we await further guidance.

We have a fantastic range of interactive webinars delivered by our experienced facilitators, Live Online Learning. We offer both shorter, 1.5-2 hour sessions that focus on a particular skill, as well as full-day sessions. You can see details of our online public programmes for our IT Skills here and our Leadership and Personal Development sessions here. We can also adapt any of our existing classroom sessions into webinar format for you.

For the latest government guidance, please visit the gov.uk website.

We will continue to monitor the situation and will advise all clients if the situation changes.

If you have any questions or concerns, or would like to arrange some online training, our friendly team are available Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm. You can leave a message on 020 7375 7300 or email us at hello@happy.co.uk.
