Our Microsoft Academy is offering an online Office 365 Diploma. Many companies now use Office 365. The course enables the learner to gain a strong understanding of the programme. You will also gain confidence using the application. This course is delivered on interactive software that provides instructions and assesses you throughout the programme. Microsoft Platinum Partners have developed the training programme.

What is Office 365?

Office 365 is a cloud-based application that includes all the core programmes in Microsoft Office. This consists of Office 365, with the following programmes; Excel, Word, OneNote, PowerPoint,  OneDrive, Teams, Outlook and SharePoint. It is cloud-based, which means it can be accessed online from any location and does not require desktop installation.

Office 365 Diploma

The Office 365 Diploma will not teach you to use individual programs like Excel or Word. If you need to learn how to use those programmes, you should purchase courses focussed on those perspective programmes. The course enables people to improve their productivity using new work processes using Microsoft’s online cloud-based services.
