    whilst browsing the net I stumbled on Google actually offering certification, the training material is totally free also.. do businesses /individuals really use Google apps?

    One place I worked before used it, my current workplace does as well. Have no experience of O365 so can't compare. the collaboration stuff is really good, you could have whole team working on same docs at the same time. Management is a pita though, a lot of simple tasks is just impossible to do. There is scripting language for it that you just have to use if you want to do bulk actions. Also there is no way to have total control, ie you can't just go in and delete emails for someone's account etc. You also can't refuse any updates/changes to the service, however we can see MS going the same way with Office and Windows...

    I have an account for personal use, another for a local charity I help to run and the school I work at has one for the pupils and staff.
    Going to look at the link you posted though, look good.

    They use Google Apps in my current work place quite intensively. They've up-skilled certain teams to support the product but I don't think anyone has done certification for it..
