Microsoft Word

Microsoft Word is one of the most user- friendly applications from the Microsoft Office suite. Everybody knows how to use Microsoft Word, but few know how to use it properly, or to most effect.  Microsoft Word is an essential tool that is useful for both complex business requirements as well as basic day-to-day purposes.

Microsoft Word lets you create the simple word processing documents like letters and reports and add features to these such as shapes or images. You can use tables for a number of different purposes and bullet formatting is easy when you know how! The use of newspaper type columns adds variety and you can mail merge from a database so that you can easily send out the letters to multiple people at a time.

A good working knowledge of Word helps in all the professional requirements relating to business correspondence by reducing the time and efforts and energy of the users to a great extent.

The course can be delivered with your chosen content but the standard courses are divided into 3 levels.  Stage 1 Beginners, Stage 2 Intermediate and Stage 3 Advanced.
