Fast track Power Automate - Course Contents

Our fast-track Power Automate course gives you a chance to cover 3 main things which we just can't squeeze onto our two-day introduction course:

Topic

Notes

Adaptive cards

These are fun - see below for what one looks like!

Expressions

There are a number of times on the introductory course that you have to gloss over the syntax of JSON expressoins a bit; the three-day fast-track course allows us to go into more detail on expressoin syntax.

Exercises

There's usually a bit more time to do exercises on the fast-track course.

 Here's what an adaptive card might look like:

You can post adaptive cards to Teams channels, for example.

On this three-day course you'll also learn about what Microsoft Graph is and how to interrogate it using HTTP Response actions to get information about your files, emails, teams, users or anything else from the cloud.

This fast-track course combines topics from the following other Wise Owl courses:

What other people have said

Our thanks to everyone who agreed to share their thoughts. All of the following reviews are from the last 3 calendar years:

"The trainer was excellent - he took the time to "get to know the students", was warm and welcoming - was very patient when people were struggling with difficult concepts - it was a truly enjoyable experience (never thought i would say that about excel - lol!!!)"

Alex Mason (Government Internal Audit Agency (GIAA))

"The trainer was excellent, very knowledgeable and really easy to follow, with a great personality which made training, fun!"

Alex Radford (Marley Ltd)

"An excellent trainer, full of energy and really keen to see us improve on our existing SQL skills. Kept me engaged throughout the entire training process. Used SQL in the past but wanted to gain more understanding of the different clauses which are used. Came out of the training with a much better understanding of SQL, in that I now know when to use each clause and how to format queries."

Joshua Woolner (Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC))

"An amazing tutor. Patient and very clear to understand. His teaching manner suits all capabilities from the novice (me), to those already familiar with Power BI. Thank you "

Patricia Daly (Great Western Railway (GWR))

"The course was excellent and at just the right level. An excellent tutor and she really helped us to fully understand the course content, taking her time to go through things if we didn't quite grasp it. Thank you, much appreciated! Would definitely recommend Wise Owl to anyone. I chose the course as my work colleague had used the free YouTube videos and advised me of them. I have done a Microsoft course before and Wise Owl are much better in my opinion."

Lindsey Reed (Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service)

How our training courses work

Below are some notes on how Wise Owl courses work, to help you decide whether they're for you or not.

What you'll need

If you book on a classroom course, the only thing you need to bring to the course is ... yourself! We even provide a notepad and a suprisingly nice pen for you to take notes with.

For online training you'll need two things:

  1. A good internet connection (otherwise you'll have a frustrating time); and
  2. A second screen (a requirement, not a nice-to-have!)

You can see full details of our online course requirements here.

When you book a place

If you book a place on one of our courses:

  • For classroom courses we will send out a joining email. That's it!
  • For online courses we will get in touch to organise a half-hour pre-course check to iron out any connection problems before the course (rather than during it).

Whatever type of course you book, we will also send you out a reminder a few days before the course is due to take place - not that (we hope) you'll have forgotten!

What you won't need

For classroom training, you won't need a computer - we (obviously) will provide that. However, you're welcome to use your own laptop if you prefer, providing that you have the correct software installed.

For online training you will need a computer, but you won't need to have any software installed.  This is because you'll use Windows Remote Desktop to connect to our computers, and these will have all of the necessary files and software installed.

The start of the course

For online courses you will be able to join up to half an hour before the course begins. This will give you time to:

  • familiarise yourself with the set-up;
  • meet your trainer; and
  • get to know the other delegates!

For classroom training it's always nice if people arrive a bit early too, to give people time to meet each other (and drink coffee).

You'll be given a full colour courseware manual, an exercise booklet to go with the course and a USB stick for taking course files away (we'll post all this to you for online courses).

After the course

After the course finishes you'll receive a digital certificate proving your attendance (we will gladly send a paper copy on request also).

We don't have any formal arrangement for answering questions after the course, but if you get stuck on something and email your trainer they should (and nearly always do!) respond as quickly as their training schedule allows.
