DTA to offer Microsoft training courses to APS staff

The Digital Transformation Agency is making available a range of Microsoft digital training courses to the entire Australian Public Service in 2021.

The agency is continuing its partnership established last year with Microsoft to release a series of courses for both IT administrators and general users.

Some IT administrator courses are commencing this month, with courses for general users set to begin in February. All sessions are instructor-led and conducted virtually using Microsoft Teams.

The IT administrator courses cover Microsoft 365 self-paced learning and a line of Microsoft Cloud training.

Meanwhile, courses for general users cover Microsoft Teams, Microsoft OneNote, Microsoft Power BI and Microsoft Power Automate. These courses are sponsored by the DTA and Microsoft under the APS Digital Professional Stream.

As an alternative to the instructor-led courses, the partnership will make available content on Microsoft Learn, a free, self-paced learning and webinar tool.
