Managing your time in the Apple Environment
This training course combines our Time Management training course with the functions of the Apple environment. It is not required to have access to a computer station for the training, since we will provide an illustrated step-by-step guide to help you set up your Apple computer. The user guide will also serve as a workbook and reference guide. Mastering the use of Tasks is a key-element in efficient time management. Hence our training puts a lot of emphasis on the Task tool of software. The various options and strategic approaches offered by the Apple environment will be explored in this training course. At the end of this training, you will have acquired time management principles, you will be familiar with best practices and you will know how to apply them in the Apple environment.
