Microsoft Word - The Overlooked Tools

$225 per person (in the US and Canada) 

We all know the basics of word processing - how to type, change fonts, maybe even do a bit of reliable formatting for our Microsoft Word documents. But are you really using the program to make your everyday work faster and easier? The problem is, very few of us ever get formal training on Word, which is - regardless of your industry - the most commonly used program in the world today. We’ve all learned on the job, just sort of "figured it out" and we get by. This course focuses on practical use of the most beneficial, yet often overlooked, tools within Word. Whether you’re new to Microsoft Word or have been using it for years, there's something in this course that will make you sit up straight and say: “Wow, I had no idea Word could do that!”

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.

Note: Instructor will be using the latest version of Microsoft Word and students are encouraged to use same.
