The following SharePoint end user training is one of the best trainings I used or could find.

End user training is critical for the adoption of SharePoint since people are used to work with the tools they have and usually don't want to switch. Any new tool allows to improve the way of work but also has the risk of failing due to not communicating advantages.

How I would start:

Although I started as a SharePoint developer I quickly got all kinds of questions.

First it was difficult since they were very specific questions and while I eventually managed to answer them I didn't know a lot about basic functionality. As developers we try to implement things... even if they exist since we don't know about them.

  1. So I suggest learning the most basic stuff first.

It should be broad so you can see what's possible with SharePoint even if you don't know the details.

Next step:

  1. Learn details about important functionality.

You don't need to be an expert in everything.


  1. Only learn details about non-important functionality when you need it.

Don't buy books!

Use videos! Instead of paying $20 for a book you can get dozens of high quality videos for the same price.

Udemy offers lots of SharePoint videos and some of them have great reviews because of their quality. You'll learn a lot and see exactly how it's done. Please note that I get a commission if you buy a course through a link below.
