The moment you get comfortable with technology, something changes. Today’s administrative professional needs to be well versed in various applications and application platforms to stay nimble in an ever-evolving technology world and be effective as a technology influencer in your organization. The Technology Applications Specialty Certificate offers training in a wide variety of software applications and platforms, some with which you work every day, and some that you might find yourself needing to know tomorrow! This 2 1/2-day course is designed to align your business process challenges with the right collection of tools to maximize efficiency and be able to rise to the next challenge or career opportunity.
Monday’s focus is the Microsoft suite of tools - beginning with desktop applications like Excel, Outlook, and OneNote, then moving into the Microsoft Cloud tools. Participants will be shown how to integrate Office 365, SharePoint, OneDrive for Business, and new tools like Flow and Planner.
On Tuesday, the focus shifts to cloud-based tools from G-Suite and Adobe Documents to Slack, Trello, Asana, Evernote, IFTTT, Keep, and more. Recent studies show that the average office professional has 10-20 online services available for collaboration and productivity, and third-party tools like Asana can easily integrate into your existing processes.
Review will happen on Wednesday morning and culminate in an assessment project using the tools you’ve learned.
The TA Specialty Certificate verifies you are up-to-date and ready for not only the current technologies available, but also utilizing those technologies with new ones to function in our virtual world.
