Key details

Key details

Microsoft Teams provides a central workspace to collaborate, communicate and work together.

This course teaches the key elements of Teams. Sessions include:

  • Introduction to Teams
  • Creating a Team
  • Working with channels
  • File storage
  • Instant chat

  • Teams meetings

Microsoft Teams training is arranged on-request, i.e. one-to-one training or a ‘closed course’ for your group. Your training can be tailored to take into account any existing knowledge you have, and the work you’re going to be doing.

Exercises provide activity-based experience and help build confidence using Teams.

In-class or online

This course is available in-class at eight centres or live online.

Live online training

Live online training

Online training lets you participate in a live Microsoft Office course from your place of work or home.

We do everything possible to make your online training experience as close as possible to actually being in the classroom. You can:

  • See and hear our trainer, and the other delegates participating in the course…
    Live online training - see your trainer and the other course delegates
  • Watch our trainer demonstrate techniques in Microsoft Office.
  • Interact by speaking, using chat, or raising your ‘virtual hand’ if you need assistance.
  • Share your screen with our trainer, and allow them to take control to explain something.

Like our in-class courses, online Microsoft Teams courses…

  • Are presented by expert instructors.
  • Give you plenty of opportunity to carry out assisted, practical exercises using Microsoft Office.
  • Offer 30 days’ email support from your trainer.

All you need is an Internet-connected computer with…

  • Microsoft Office installed.
  • A webcam and audio capability. If your computer running Microsoft Office doesn’t have these, you can use a second device, such as another computer or tablet. See Hardware recommendations for live online training for further details.

If there’s anything you’re not sure about we’ll do our best to help you. We won’t, however, be able to assist with your Microsoft Office installation.

We provide everything else…

  • Links to download the files, resources, etc. you’ll use in your course.
  • A training guide. For most courses, you can choose from a printed copy that we post to you, or a PDF.

In the week before your course, we’ll send you an email containing everything you need to prepare for and participate in the training. Then, a couple of days before your course, we’ll give you a courtesy call to make sure you have everything in place and answer any questions you may have.

Please note that we are not able to record scheduled online courses for privacy reasons.

When you attend live online training, you’re participating in a real course, hosted by a real trainer, in real time
