Google Apps Training Courses

We provide Google Apps Training Courses. All outlines can be adapted to the needs of the individual or organisation and we generally train on client site so you are looking at the system as it is set up in your workplace.

People are using Google Apps in different ways so this is very much a provisional course outline from which you can pick and choose topics that are relevant to your organisation.

Some companies are using the Gmail, Google Calendar and Google Contacts features; others are using Google Apps to do their word processing – Google Docs -, create presentations – Google Slides, etc. Others would like to be able to understand the mysteries of Google circles.

We provide Google Apps training in Sydney, CBD, North Sydney, Chatswood, St Leonards, Parramatta, Ryde and beyond.

Please contact us for further details.

Visit our blog If Only I’d Known That,; we have called it that because we hear it so many times in training sessions. In fact, if only we had an extra $150 for every time someone says “If only I’d known that.” ….
