Working with Word  – efficiently and effectively

The aim of the course is to provide you with the skills that will help you control all those formatting issues when text just doesn’t align or display in the way you want it to!  It will also introduce you to quick tips and shortcut keys that will help you speed up your use of Word and put an end to those frustrating times when a deadline is looming.

This course is suitable for delegates who are regular users of Word, have attended training in the past or who are mostly self-taught.  You must have a basic understanding of a Microsoft Windows PC including keyboard and mouse familiarity.
