SMBiT Professionals Perth Chapter recently concluded a series of training sessions for members in that state. Challenged by the seemingly distant western location, the Perth Chapter engaged Office 365 guru Robert Crane to conduct a series of training sessions with sell out success.
“We know that it seems that sometimes Perth is closer to the moon than anywhere else, with very little training coming to this side of the country. So we decided to rectify this by bringing the training to Perth said Shannan Jones, SMBiT Professionals and Perth committee member.
Launched in April, the sell-out training sessions built on each other and included practical applications in delivering hands on training for members. The key focussed topics included:
- Office 365 – Enterprise Mobility Suite & Office 365 it’s not just for email
- SharePoint – Practical applications & hands on training
- Enterprise Mobility Suite – An Essential Attach to Office 365
By taking advantage of sophisticated and up-to-date software like Office 356, members were able to quickly redeem benefits from taking part in the training sessions. The Enterprise Mobility Suite (EMS) presented by Australia’s Office 365 Guru, Robert Crane, was the first training event. Members received a technical overview of the Microsoft EMS as well as how it integrates with cloud and on-premises environments, learning key features of the software. Robert also discussed his vast knowledge of Office 365 and demonstrated other key features SMBiT Professional members could be implementing with their clients.
Given the strong interest in SharePoint in the first session, an intensive SharePoint session was completed in the second session, covering topics about the features and theory behind SharePoint and how to build such things as company leave calendars and coffee ordering sections to add to your SharePoint site. Finally, a comprehensive training session was provided covering an introduction-to-implementation of Microsoft Azure including migration: The steps for moving from typical on-prem to Azure and Office 365.
Robert Crane is Australia’s guru of Office 365. He is an Office 365 MVP and called upon regularly by Microsoft and Vendors to present throughout Australia on Office 365. He has published several books and is active in producing many training guides for Office 365 and posting regular updates and how-to’s at his blog http://blog.ciaops.com/
