Skype for Business Live Online Learning Courses

With remote working becoming more popular, Skype for Business is an invaluable tool. We currently offer three 90-minute courses covering the essential features of Skype for Business. You can either take just 1 or all 3 sessions, as well as mix and matching with our other sessions.

How to Use Skype for Business introduces you to the essentials, such as instant messaging and video calls; Voice and Video Meetings in Skype for Business teaches you how to create your own meetings; and Interactive Meetings with Skype for Business enables you to facilitate more effective meetings, presentations and webinars.

The three courses are delivered remotely via GoToTraining. Contact us for availability and pricing.

The Small Print

The course will run remotely for 90 minutes. 

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.
