IT Training

ITS offers FREE information technology training during Fall and Spring semesters for many common applications on campus. We offer group classes, one-on-one training for select topics, and have a few online tutorials available. In addition, we participate in Cyber Security Awareness national events. In October and April each year, we offer an array of classes in an effort to raise awareness about online privacy and the security of data. For Data Privacy Awareness month each January, we typically host a few Webinars offered through Educause. Our classes are announced via UWG Daily Report, the UWG Calendar, the IT Training site and via email to Faculty and Staff Listservs. 

New topic ideas are most welcome! We try our best to accommodate your requests, however due to time, resource and budget constraints we may not be able to. Be assured that we take ALL of your suggestions into consideration!
