Will It Suit My Needs?

Our clear and engaging step by step training covers all Sage Line 50 functions and is suitable for users with no experience or those with some Sage knowledge who want to re-cap their learning before moving on to the intermediate and advanced tasks as the course progresses. The beauty of e learning is that you can access each unit of study as often as you like without the pressure to keep pace with fellow students that you get in traditional classroom settings. Interactive simulations of real Sage software are used in the course, meaning you can practice the tasks you’ll be doing in the real world and you’re less likely to forget your new-found expertise.
