This course is aimed at users of SharePoint Server 2013 and 2016. If you are using SharePoint Online (SharePoint in Office 365) please refer to the course QASPEUOL1 - SharePoint Online End User Level 1.

The goal of this course is to provide you with the knowledge required as an end-user of Microsoft SharePoint On-Premises. The course emphasises hands-on experience, with a series of self-guided exercises integrated into the training.

You will discover and understand what SharePoint is and how to access it from a browser or from Office. You will learn how to use SharePoint to collaborate within a team, organise and manage documents, events, tasks and other items. You will use the tools provided to search for information and people, find documents and open them from Microsoft Office applications and Office 2016.

This course is designed for users who are new or have basic skills with SharePoint. Although users will be given an insight into SharePoint the equivalent of a SharePoint Site member, they will be shown how to create certain objects to appreciate how they work.

Please note: Topics from this event are also covered in our five-day SharePoint On-Premises Masterclass (QASPPMC) course.
