Microsoft Word for Beginners

$225 per person (in the US and Canada)

Most of us had to learn Microsoft Word on our own or with limited help. While you may know how to do simple tasks such as basic formatting and typing, Word has numerous features that are easy to use that can help anyone construct a professional document. This course will start at the beginner level to allow all students to gain a strong foundation before we work into more advanced and useful features of Word.

This eight (8) hour course is delivered in four (4), two-hour long sessions that students can attend online, right from their own desk. A live instructor will explain the detailed functions, and address questions as the class progresses.
