Microsoft 365 Training

The overnight transition to a remote work environment required an immediate utilization of Teams—whether your company was prepared or not. Now it’s time to step back and to ensure you’re using Teams—and the other M365 apps—as efficiently and productively as possible. The best way to endure this is through training. Centriq has the programs and experience to train not just your End Users but also your M365 Champions that drive training and adoption inside your company.

Champion Program

To put it simply, an M365 Champion is an internal team member who has been chosen to help lead your company’s M365 training and adoption plan. Your M365 Champion(s) act as your company’s "early adopters" becoming experts in Teams and SharePoint Online and building proficiency with the entire M365 environment. M365 Champions then work to establish M365 policies, procedures, and best practices while providing subject matter expertise to your End Users. Read more about M365 Champions here.
