Atlassian’s Jira Software is a powerful tool used by teams (business and IT) to plan and track their work. The Jira 101 user training course is aimed at both individuals who have never used Jira before, as well as those who have been using Jira but would like to understand how to use Jira more effectively and optimally or want to rehash the basic usage of Jira.

This is a beginner level course and no pre-requisites from an Atlassian tool perspective are applicable.
User must be comfortable using a PC and have basic computer skills under the belt.
The user needs to use a JIRA compatible browser. Each user needs to check this prior to the training session as our trainers cannot provide technical support on this during training.
