Either way, we are on hand for advice on the best way to structure your customised training course.
To help you with your customised option, you can choose from our extensive list of course topics. We can then help you to assign the appropriate amount of content based on your training timeframe, and the best order of topics to ensure your training flows well.

Google G Suite FAQ's
Google G Suite, previously known as Google Apps, is the Google equivalent of, and competitor to Microsoft Office 365. It is a suite of enterprise applications and storage used by businesses. Unlike many traditional applications, G Suite is not installed on the desktop, instead of this, the applications are accessible through your web browser.

Key applications of Google G Suite:
- Docs – Word Processing
- Sheets – Spreadsheets
- Slides – Presentations
- Drive – Storage
These are just some of the applications available in the Google G Suite, but there are several more, and they are constantly evolving. In fact, that’s one of the advantages of G Suite, you always have the latest version.
Have you ever wondered why the Dummies books are so popular? Well, it’s probably because so many of us are self-taught, using Google to find out how to use a function, or we are shown how to use software by someone at work.
Although this can be useful, it also means we tend to spend a lot of time with trial and error, or we are just picking up somebody else’s bad habits. Trial and error, unfortunately, involves a lot of error, and the bad habits you pick up will probably be passed on to the next person, so soon they spread across the business, meaning entire teams can end up working inefficiently.
At this point, you might head to the bookstore or do an online search to find a Google G Suite book to help solve some of those tricky issues. That’s a step in the right direction, and we sometimes use reference manuals ourselves. The problem is that trying to learn by trial and error may cost you many times the cost of a good training course.
Our G Suite courses are designed to target the key features and tools included in the various applications to help you get back to work and apply them right away.
At Keystroke Learning we pride ourselves in helping people to get the most out of Google G Suite. We place emphasis on working smarter, not harder. Participants often tell us that they are saving lots of time by using the tips and shortcuts they learn during our courses.
Typically, one of our experienced trainers will walk you through the features and functions of the software, then you will try them out on your own, with tips and guidance on getting the best out of the features. We also encourage participants to ask lots of questions to help you get the most out of your learning experience.
You’ll receive a manual to take away at the end of the course, as well as exercise files so you can practice later, or just to jog your memory when you need it.
Yes, you can. Use your local Google Drive folder to store files that weren’t created using the Google Docs applications (such as PDFs, Word documents, spreadsheets etc.) and you can enable offline access to your Google Docs editors if you use Chrome as your browser.
You can also enable it on your mobile device, which is very useful because that way you can remotely edit your files through the Docs, Sheets and Slides apps. This can be a huge advantage for people who travel a lot and need to get work done on the move.
When you store your files in a central document repository like Google Drive, a lot of useful things become possible.
First of all, you immediately take away the issue of having multiple file versions being stored in different desktop silos all over your organisation. Instead, you get a single storage location for all your latest files, which are constantly being updated and accessible to everyone who needs them.
But perhaps even more importantly, cloud storage means your staff can access their files wherever they have an internet connection, no matter where they are or what device they’re using. This makes it very simple to implement a reliable, mobile work experience.
You will still be able to read your files, and you can edit them and convert them as needed, regardless of whether you have the Microsoft Office software on your computer.
What’s more, they don’t turn into a garbled mess. G Suite is fully compatible with those files and Google is continually fine-tuning the G Suite apps to maximise conversion fidelity.
In fact, you can use all the power of G Suite, such as real-time collaboration, as well as mobile use, and cloud storage on those files.
Not at all. In fact, a lot of businesses begin with a small team so that they can test things out and ease the transition. This can be done while the rest of the company stays on the old tools they’re familiar with. Because Google G Suite is pay per user this is quite straightforward to manage.
Another common approach we’ve seen is that companies start with Google Drive to begin with, while still using their existing email system. This also makes the transition easier for many.
Although Google G Suite is compatible with most of the existing file formats that people are used to (such as .doc, .xls, .ppt), many companies end up gradually phasing out their old software tools completely once they’ve made the switch.
Well, although working with a synchronised version of group editing might feel a little strange the first couple of times you try it, most people will get the hang of it in no time.
If you think about it, one big advantage is that instead of storing multiple versions of the file in a bunch of different folders, you get one document with a complete, annotated history of all revisions that have been made.
So, you require less storage space, fewer problems and you now have a “single source of truth”.
Your learning doesn’t stop once you have completed your course. We hope you will continue your experience by taking some time to practice what you have learned and apply it to your own situation and environment.
