Attendees should have experience with the Internet Explorer and Office Products such as Word, Excel and Outlook. Previous experience with SharePoint (any version) is ideal but not required.


All attendees receive comprehensive courseware covering all subjects in the course.


  • Each student will need a full installation of SharePoint Server 2010, including a Windows Server 2008 operating system and a SQL Server 2008 database, and also client tools such as Internet Explorer, Office 2010, and Visual Studio 2010.
  • During the process of scheduling the class, we will host a conference call with you to discuss setup options.
  • For classes delivered online, all participants need either dual monitors or a separate device logged into the online session so that they can do their work on one screen and watch the instructor on the other. A separate computer connected to a projector or large screen TV would be another way for students to see the instructor’s screen simultaneously with working on their own.
