Key details

Microsoft Visio is the industry-standard diagramming application, providing tools to create data-linked flow charts, mind maps and database diagrams, to communicate complex information visually. Armada offers the following Visio training courses:

Visio 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) Visio courses.

This approach means that we can tailor your training to take into account any existing knowledge you have, and the type of diagrams and charts you’re going to be producing. 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 Visio. These exercises can be tailored to deal with issues specific to your business, for example we can base them on your Visio templates.

We can host the training at one of our centres, or your venue anywhere in the UK.
