Office training in Australia from MicrosoftThe new Office has already been made available for our volume licence customers (yep, that pretty much means every education customer in Australia has been able to install it since early December, so I know what some IT teams will be busy with over the summer holidays). Well, to go with it, there's a pile of new training courses under the 'Ignite' brand for partners and customers coming up in the next couple of months (the first run of these filled up too quickly).

And some of them are free, whilst others you'll pay for, but they all offer the same great experience of hands-on Office training in Australia:
