Collaboration Tools: Microsoft Teams - Fast Track (Live Online using MS Teams)

Thu 20 Aug 2020


Need to get up to speed quickly with Teams? Then join us in this friendly, fast-paced, introductory session to learn how to get up and running. If you prefer a slower pace with more opportunity for practice then consider attending Teams Parts 1 - 4 (see Related courses below).
