Have you ever found yourself wondering, “How can I get all these systems to work together so I don’t have to keep duplicating this work?” They can! The Technology Applications Specialty Certificate offers training in a wide variety of software platforms and applications that you work with daily. And the best part - they all work together. This 2 1/2-day course is designed to align your business process challenges with the right collection of tools to maximize efficiency and minimize rework and frustration.
Monday’s focus is the Microsoft suite of tools - beginning with desktop applications like Excel, Outlook, and OneNote, then moving into the Microsoft Cloud tools. Participants will be shown how to integrate Office 365, SharePoint, OneDrive for Business, and new tools like Flow and Planner.
On Tuesday, the focus shifts to cloud-based tools from G-Suite and Adobe Documents to Slack, Trello, Asana, Evernote, IFTTT, Keep, and more. Recent studies show that the average office professional has 10-20 online services available for collaboration and productivity, and third-party tools like Asana can easily integrate into your existing processes.
Review will happen on Wednesday morning and culminate in an assessment project using the tools you’ve learned.
The TA Specialty Certificate verifies you are up-to-date and ready for not only the current technologies available, but also utilizing those technologies with new ones to function in our virtual world.
