New classes at LRS!

As we look ahead to 2020, I’m excited to announce we have added new classes to our offerings that clients have been asking for! I believe we have hit the trifecta!

The first course covers one of the most asked about technologies that we have seen in all of 2019: Microsoft Power BI. This year has definitely been the year of data…the collection of and effective leveraging of data. Our Microsoft Power BI: Data Analysis Professional course is a 3-day course immersing you in the processes of how to connect to various data sources and quickly create visualizations to show trends and create reports.

Next is our CyberSAFE Security Awareness course. While we have offered technical cybersecurity courses for quite some time, this half-day offering enables employees of any organization to identify many of the common risks associated with conventional end-user technology. What is great about this course is that it not only provides non-technical end users a thorough understanding of their effect on cybersecurity, but it also provides an understanding of how to navigate through the Internet and email securely.

An investment in end-user awareness training reduces security related risks by 45% - 70%. –

The last of our new courses for 2020 Q1 is our Google Analytics: Foundation training. I realized long ago the value of knowing how visitors interact with our website so that we could determine if our presentation of content, promotions, etc. was helpful. Google Analytics is free to use and provides rich reporting and analysis tools to analyze the success of web initiatives. This course not only helps you use the real-time reports and dashboards of Google Analytics, but also teaches how to draw conclusions about the effectiveness of your site.

I’m looking forward to another year of helping our clients use their technology most effectively and safely in their work environment!

Have a wonderful holiday season and a joyous new year!
