Course overview

Course overview

Gmail is the world's most popular email system, but did you know there are a suite of other Google productivity and collaboration tools that it works seamlessly with? G Suite is an all-in-one online package that can help you to simplify your work and get more done! Used by 1.4 billion people worldwide it uses the power of Google to make applications easier to use and more intelligent. As it’s on the “cloud” the applications can be accessed anywhere and on any device including Android/Apple/Microsoft. G Suite rivals Microsoft Office as it's applications are mostly free, have more online storage, allow multiple users to update files and are simpler to use. We will show you how to organise your business, study or personal life using these tools that can make you more efficient and modernise the way you work.

This course is for those already using Gmail or G Suite for Business/Enterprise, or for those looking to upskill. The practical training will show you the latest technology, to enhance knowledge and skills in working with information, documentation and images in the most simple and efficient way e.g. automate email responses, manage time and meetings, create spreadsheet with smart graphs, video chat, store and share documents, use word or presentation slide templates, voice notes and organise your information for quick searching. The training is suitable for beginner to advanced levels.

For the business owner, the training will show you how to modernise your business and store your information safely on the cloud. G Suite has been used widely in the the small business and education sector since 2006, and recently Woolworths, RSPCA, Uber and AirBnB have all rolled out G Suite for their large businesses.

We will take you step-by-step through the following apps in the G Suite package:
