Microsoft Outlook is the de-facto standard application for information management, offering email, a calendar, contact manager, task manager and other useful features. Armada offers the following Outlook training courses:
Outlook 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) Outlook courses.
This approach means that we can tailor your training to take into account any existing knowledge you have, and the way your organisation uses Outlook. You can, for example, choose some introductory-level topics, and some advanced-level topics.
Exercises provide activity-based experience and help build delegates’ confidence using Outlook.
We can host the training at one of our centres, or your venue anywhere in the UK.
Microsoft Outlook courses are hosted by highly experienced instructors. For details, see Expert trainers.
