Microsoft Office is a collection of desktop productivity applications, designed to automate many of the tasks carried out in a typical office.

This introductory-level course teaches the key techniques for using Microsoft Office in your day-to-day work.

Microsoft Office Basics training (2 days)

Teaches the use of the four primary Microsoft Office applications. Delegates learn how to:

Use Microsoft Word to create consistent, formatted documents.

Use Microsoft Outlook to send and receive emails, manage your contacts and organize your calendar.

Use Microsoft Excel to create spreadsheets that make use of formulae and functions.

Use Microsoft PowerPoint to create aesthetically-pleasing slideshows, with transition effects and animations.

Microsoft Office Basics training is arranged on-request, i.e. one-to-one training or a course for your group. Training can be hosted at one of our venues in Birmingham, Reading or Milton Keynes, or yours anywhere in the UK. Scheduled (public) courses are not available.

Whilst attending training at our venues, delegates have the use of a computer running licensed Microsoft Office software to practice the techniques taught. Exercises provide activity-based experience and help build delegates' confidence using the applications. These exercises can be tailored to deal with issues specific to your business, for example we can base them on your Word templates or spreadsheets.
