Microsoft Word

The majority of people who use Microsoft Word on a regular basis believe that they there is no real requirement for training in MS Word. However time and time again once they do attend training I hear exclaimations such as “If only I knew that a couple of weeks ago…..”.

The fact is that even experienced users of MS Word will benefit from attending a training session. We will look at faster methods of performing everyday tasks using a range of Shortcut Keys in addition to exploring the more advanced functionality that is available within the application.

A range of Microsoft Word courses is available from beginners to advanced.

We also offer a ‘Blended Training’ programme incorporating the use of Microsoft Word – our 2-day ‘Complete Business & Report Writing’ course adopts a hands-on approach and shows particpants how to apply the ‘theory’ of business writing skills through the use of MS Word.

Please see each of the individual courses listed below.

We can also create a customised course outline to address any specific requirements you might have – please contact us for more information.
