New at Centriq: M365 MicroClasses

October 22, 2020 in Microsoft 365/Office 365, Corporate IT Training / by Alison Gibson

Most organizations have not had the time to formally train their teams on these tools, so employees instead figured out the “hacks” they needed to continue their normal work routines. In response, Centriq created a series of one and two day Microsoft 365 Apps classes which provided comprehensive training on all different components of M365.  Now Centriq has created a new series of shorter training classes focusing on specific tasks or projects within various M365 apps. These new, two-hour learning events are called M365 MicroClasses.
