Register now for in-demand APS Microsoft digital training courses

18 June 2021

Since November, APS Digital Profession training courses have been attended more than 2000 times by staff upgrading their digital skills.


These in-demand courses are aimed at upgrading the digital skills of general users and IT administrators across the Australian Public Service.

APS employees are encouraged to quickly secure their place for the last 3 scheduled Microsoft courses for June 2021. The introductory courses for Power Automate, Microsoft OneNote and Power BI, are among the most popular courses delivered under the Digital Transformation Agency program.

These courses are delivered virtually and bridge gaps in digital proficiency through instructor-led training. In as little as an hour, staff can upgrade or refresh their software program skills.

“I really appreciated the little tips around everyday use that I hadn't seen before, rather than one feature,” one APS employee said after recently completing a general user course.

3 remaining courses in June

  • Power Automate: Introduction and Overview - Monday 21 June, 1:30pm
  • Microsoft OneNote: Introduction and Overview - Wednesday 23 June, 1:30pm
  • Power BI: Introduction and Overview - Friday 25 June, 1:30pm

The courses are delivered virtually via Microsoft Teams:

Power Automate: Introduction and Overview

Power Automate helps users automate everyday tasks. It works across some of the most popular apps and services with automated tasks called Flows. In this 1-hour workshop you will receive an overview of the product, a live demonstration and learn how to make your first Flow.

Microsoft OneNote: Introduction and Overview

Make the best use of OneNote, from using templates and ‘drawing your thoughts’ to inserting videos and content from the web.

Power BI: Introduction and Overview

Power BI lets you easily connect to your data sources, visualise what’s important and share with other users in your organisation. In this course you’ll learn how to build your own dashboard using Power BI.

User feedback

Some fantastic feedback from APS employees attending previous general user courses includes:

  • ‘Great session. Was very helpful in introducing me to Power BI.’
  • ‘The presenter was amazing. Let's face it - Power BI is a dry topic, but I was absolutely fascinated by his energy and clear tone, and the hour vanished so quickly.’
  • ‘The presenter gave a good overview of OneNote. I particularly liked the write to text feature.’

The cost

Under the APS Digital Profession, the courses are sponsored by DTA and Microsoft.
