Microsoft Access is a database creation and management program used to store large amounts of information for reference, reporting, and analysis. Armada offers Access training courses to users at all levels:
- Introduction to Microsoft Access (2 days)
- Intermediate Microsoft Access (1 day)
- Advanced Microsoft Access (1 day)
Access training is available on-request only, i.e. one-to-one training or a ‘closed’ course for your group. We don’t currently offer scheduled (public) Access courses.
This approach means that we can tailor your training to take into account any existing knowledge you have, and the type of documents you’re going to be producing. You can, for example, choose some introductory-level topics, and some intermediate-level topics.
Exercises provide activity-based experience and help build delegates’ confidence using Access. These exercises can be tailored to deal with issues specific to your business, for example we can base them on your Access templates.
We can host the training at one of our centres, or your venue anywhere in the UK.
