Social Media: The Basics for Beginners

This social media training for beginners is ideal for individuals who do not currently use social media. But, want to learn about social media and need to understand how to use it for their business. To attend the training, you do not need to create accounts on social media as this is a beginners session; handouts will be given detailing how to set accounts up. By the end of this social media training course, delegates will be confident enough to set up social media platforms and start using social media for your business on a basic level.

We used the SEK Training for First Aid, which was excellent. A further course for Social Media was very helpful to us. The instruction was clear and concise, conducted in a friendly and easy going atmosphere. Further to this one of our staff attended a Communications course. We are delighted with the courses that SEK Training offer and can definitely recommend them.
