University of Waterloo faculty, staff and students can access web-based training from LinkedIn Learning using their username and password. Limited access is available to new graduates with the goal of expanding access to more alumni soon. This training complements IST's IT Professional Development (ITPD) program. For example, you may want to learn Microsoft Excel in a lab setting through the ITPD program and then learn more advanced features as you need them through LinkedIn Learning. LinkedIn Learning is also an excellent resource to learn about the new features in an application.
