About | Classes

Today’s distributed work environments often create the need for managers, employees, and customers to be able to communicate with each other from different physical locations. Microsoft SharePoint can give you the ability to work in collaboration in such an environment. This technology creates a Web-based environment, giving access to documents, ideas, important links, and communications.  

Our specialized certificate covers the collaboration features of SharePoint, as well as how to integrate with Office products, store and secure data, customize lists, and manage user access. The certificate includes courses using SharePoint Designer, Microsoft's application for creating and enhancing your SharePoint sites.
