The participants were introduced to various Google Workspace applications, including Gmail, Google Calendar, Google Drive, Google Chat, Google Meet, Google Docs, Google Sheets, Google Slides, Google Forms, Google Sites, and Google Classroom. The trainers provided hands-on demonstrations, interactive exercises, and practical examples to ensure a comprehensive understanding of each application's core and advanced capabilities.
The training was tailored to meet the specific needs of the participants based on a pre-workshop survey which helped identify current knowledge levels and areas requiring more in-depth training. The trainers ensured that the content was relevant and applicable to the participant's daily work by addressing their specific learning needs.

He added that "empowering employees with the skills to leverage Google Workspace applications will not only enhance their individual productivity but also foster a culture of collaboration within the organization."
The training concluded with expressions of gratitude to NAMRIA as host organization for providing the opportunity to conduct the training, and the trainers for the knowledge sharing. Participants were encouraged to continue applying their newfound knowledge and skills to improve their workflows and collaboration within their teams.
The success of the Google Workspace End-User Training reaffirmed NAMRIA's commitment to professional development, leverage cutting-edge tools to drive productivity and collaboration, and remain at the forefront of innovation and efficiency within the industry.
