“The hands-on experience I received with Learning Tree's experienced instructors in this SharePoint Designer 2010 course was invaluable when it came to setting up SharePoint for my company. Daily administration of our SharePoint site wouldn't be possible without the skills I was able to gather in my Learning Tree classes”.
