Newbie to SME - Where do I begin?

Hello!  I used JIRA years ago, and am now get to use it again!  There is much for me to learn, and they also have Confluence.  

I feel like a Newbie with all of the changes.  I want to learn both JIRA and Confluence well to optimize the use and make it consistent across the company.

Guide me if you will!

Thank you in advance!

Also don't be afraid to ask questions, everyone here is very friendly and really helpful!
