SharePoint for Power Users

SharePoint for Power Users


This course is suited to both technical IT users who want to gain an understanding of the out-of-the-box capabilities of SharePoint and users from a non-technical background who want to manage and control a SharePoint site.

NOTE: This course can also be delivered for SharePoint 2013 or SharePoint 2010, please contact us for more information.


A good level of computer literacy and working knowledge of the Microsoft Office suite of products would be advantageous for this course.

No prior knowledge of SharePoint is required, however those who have attended our SharePoint for End Users course will benefit from this previous exposure to SharePoint.


3 days. Hands on.

This course is available on site only. Please call for details.
