SharePoint 2013 Boot Camp


This four-day class is one-of-a-kind for the SharePoint User community which makes up about 95% of the SharePoint roles being played across corporations worldwide. The last part of the class is a review before the student will take a wrap-up assessment test to measure that the topics covered in class are cemented in knowledge and that the student is able to hit the ground running as soon as they return to work. The assessment is a 60 question true/false and multiple choice quiz. The students will walk away from class with an industry recognizable SharePoint User Certification for basic and advanced SharePoint 2013 knowledge. This Certificate not only proves that the student has the skills needed to be a SharePoint Power User, but also is a certification that will be sure to enhance the professional resume. This course can also be targeted to SharePoint 2010 for enterprises that use the legacy software.
