For Microsoft software, staff can visit the FCPS Microsoft Work-at-Home Software Link. First you need to click "Sign In" in the upper right hand corner.

For excellent Microsoft Office 2013 training tutorials, I recommend GCFLearnFree.org. This site is user-friendly and allows you to set your own pace and learn just what you need to learn. Microsoft also has a Microsoft Office 2013 Getting Started site with usefull information, including Interactive Guides to help with the transition from Microsoft Office 2010.
