Onsite. We come to you!

  • That’s right … no travel or parking hassles because we come onsite to you on a day that works for you and your team. We travel all over the greater part of Auckland, from Orewa down to Pukekohe delivering group sessions.

Here’s What You'll Discover in this Workshop:

Expert Guidance

Guided learning, covering only what you need to get started. Not only will attendees gain an excellent introductory understanding of Microsoft OneNote, they will also learn how to avoid those scary 'gotcha' moments so that they are fully supported after the training!  And if they need assistance after the learning, all they need to do is email and we'll be right there to help.

Content that works!

The questions, feedback and suggestions from the many, many people who have completed this short-course have helped hone this learning so that it really works. We know just what learners need to know to have them working confidently in Microsoft OneNote. No waffle and no 'technical-speak'. No wasting your time!

Support resources

Learners are fully supported during and after the workshop with a comprehensive Quick Reference Guide. A 'cheat-sheet' that covers the key things they need to know to get started. We use these to reference topics during the session, and they are super popular as a reference to support learners after the training.

Certificate of Attendance

Need proof of your Continuing Professional Development (CPD)? On completion of the workshop, by request, we will send learners a “Certificate of Attendance” confirming their participation and the duration of the training session.
