*** WARNING: High Volume Class, Sign Up Early ***
This is one of our most popular classes. A green flag beside a date on the right means that a session has met the minimum enrollment levels and is running. However, it is common for dates for this course to fill several weeks in advance. Even if a date has a green flag, you might not be able to get into that session if it is full. To avoid disappointment, it is best to register for this class at least three weeks in advance.

This course is intended as a basic introduction to the “essential survival skills” needed for users to be productive in SharePoint 2010.

This seminar is designed primarily for SharePoint users and “power-users”. The material in this class is covered during day one of the "WSPU10: SharePoint 2010 Power End User" class. If you plan on taking the "SharePoint 2010 Power End User" class, it is not necessary to take this class first.
