You don't need to be a rocket scientist to go paperless. You do, however, need to put the right foundations in place.

This course looks at the basic building blocks for paperless and gives you the information you need to make a solid start to your transformation.

I explain what a 'PDF' is and what it does, and why it's central to going paperless. I also look at the recommended paperless 'toolkit', and briefly look at the other courses on Paperless Academy to help you decide how to continue your paperless transformation.


"I found this course really interesting as there were things I had not realised about the documents I use day to day. Hopefully I will now use them more efficiently and to their full potential. I would recommend this course to anyone who feels the need to upskill in this area. Now, on to the next course!"
