Have you ever found yourself wondering, "How can I keep up with all the applications and technology my organization needs to use? How can I get them to work together? What are the right applications for the right jobs?" The Technology Applications Specialty Certificate offers training in a wide variety of software platforms and applications that you work with daily. 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.
Day One's focus is the Microsoft suite of tools - beginning with desktop applications like Excel, Outlook, and Teams, as well as other Microsoft Cloud tools. Participants will be shown how to integrate Office 365, Teams, OneDrive, and more.
On Day Two, the focus shifts to the G-Suite platform and non-Google/non-Microsoft ecosystem apps like Slack, Trello, Asana, and more. Recent studies show that the average office professional has 10-20 online services available for collaboration and productivity. Getting them to aligned to work the way your organization works is a challenge. You’ll explore tools that help you do just that.
Review will happen on the morning of Day Three 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.
