SharePoint Essentials Live Online Learning Courses

In these three half-day live online interactive learning courses, delegates will explore and practice creating basic SharePoint Libraries and Lists and editing simple SharePoint site pages.

With many organisations now moving to Cloud-based working, knowledge and understanding of SharePoint is essential. SharePoint Libraries allow you to share your files across teams and organisations, keeping your documents secure and allowing for easy collaboration. 

These sessions are only available for private bookings, either for groups or as a one-to-one, held online via Zoom. Please get in touch for availability and pricing.

The Small Print

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

You will need to ensure you have the relevant software installed prior to starting your course, or you may not be able to join the event. In this case you may need to attend on another date and may be subject to our standard Terms and Conditions.

All learners will need to install Zoom on their machines. Full technical requirements are on the Zoom website. Your 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 Zoom 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.
