Introduction to Jira for End Users | JumpStart to Jira

Quick Start to Using Jira for Creating, Tracking and Reporting on Feature Requests, Reported Bugs & Managing Workflow

Course Overview

Tracking issues is a critical component of any project management strategy.  JIRA provides a web based single repository for creating, tracking and reporting on feature requests, bugs reported, or managing workflow.  JumpStart to Jira for End Users is a two-day, lab-intensive course for participants new to Jira, that provides them with a hands-on Jira instance to “learn by doing”.   This course provides essential understanding in the practical use of the Jira in an Agile context, with an emphasis on Best Practices and practical job-ready skills.  . 

NOTE: Students responsible for Jira administration should consider TTDV7540 JumpStart to Jira for Administrators as an alternative course.
