Portland Windows 8 Training
Windows 8 is the latest release of the Microsoft Windows operating system. Windows 8 (client) introduces significant changes to the operating system's graphical user interface and platform for a fast and fluid experience with emphasis on touchscreen input and with added security. This OS is for use on personal computers, laptops, tablets, and home theater PCs.
Microsoft Windows 8 training is now available right in your own home or office from your computer. The courses are taught by a live instructor and students are encouraged to interact and ask questions. All course materials are sent to students via e-mail. An instructor will provide assistance to students on their local computers. Regularly scheduled classes are available from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Windows 8 training is designed for those who are new to computers and desire to learn about the basic features and functions of the Windows 8 operating system. The course may also be valuable to more experienced users who wish to become more familiar with the Windows 8 interface. Windows 8 may be of benefit those who use the operating system for personal use as well as those needing an introduction for business applications.
The course will teach users how to identify the components of a personal computer and how to navigate using the features of Windows 8 to create e-mail and browse the internet. Students will also be taught to use current versions of applications driven by Windows 8 and how to use its functionality for multitasking. The course includes topics on how to create and modify documents as well as managing files and folders with File Explorer. Users will also have the opportunity to examine features that allow them to customize Windows 8 for their own preferences, use security features and set privacy levels. Those attending will become familiar with sharing information between applications and other users.
When it comes to training, Windows 8 might not seem like a priority. Not a lot of companies are adopting it as their primary OS, mostly because it doesn't offer many benefits over older versions of Windows, but it's still important to become familiar with Windows 8, even if you never plan on using it in your day-to-day.
Even if your company has no plans to install Windows 8 on company machines, chances are that a number of your employees are buying tablets, laptops, and even desktop machines for personal use that are running Windows 8 meaning that your IT department needs to be familiar with how it works, and specifically how it interacts with your company's servers.
How do you teach your IT department how to interact with Windows 8, though? There are a ton of changes, especially on the technical side, that make Windows 8 different than any other version of Windows that has come before. Thankfully, we at Certified Staffing Solutions are here to help.
If you're a small business with just a single IT professional, we offer the ability for him or her to enjoy the benefits of direct personalized training virtually, by using a real live training professional via camera to directly communicate.
On the other hand, if you have a whole group of IT professionals to train on Windows 8, we also offer a second type of training seminar where we send a trainer to your place of business and teach groups.
