*** 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 aimed at End Users that have little or no previous exposure to SharePoint 2013. If you have used previous versions of SharePoint but have not attended a SharePoint End User training course you will also benefit from this course.

This seminar is designed primarily for SharePoint users and “power-users”. The material in this class is covered during day one of the "WSPU13: SharePoint 2013 Power End User" class. If you plan on taking the "SharePoint 2013 Power End User" class, it is not necessary to take this class first.

Version Note
This course is applicable for individuals running the desktop version SharePoint 2013 or SharePoint Online.

Course Summary

This is not a “What’s new” course, here we focus on the practical tasks that most people will perform on a daily basis.
