Qualitative Impact

People attending the classes learn how to plan, build and configure SharePoint® Farms, understand the concepts behind its object model, the hierarchy of components and implementation of custom solutions.

The classes are intended for Windows® systems administrators, developers, business analysts, project managers, graphic designers and service desk professionals willing to upskill.

The course modules are improved upon our own proprietary programme, already used as part of project implementations since 2010. We evaluate attendees based on the product websites they create following the proposed exercises. We set online discussion groups for additional support. A branded course certificate for each of the modules is provided electronically in a pen-drive given at the end of the course.

Upon successful completion, we bridge job applications with our clients and for internal projects we have. We also offer support to students and freelancers willing to start-up their IT companies so they can contract into the very demanded Microsoft® SharePoint® market in Ireland.
