Microsoft Office 2016 UpgradeDownload Course Outline

Duration: 1 day or Half Day

Microsoft Office 2016 is available stand-alone or as part of Office 365 and follows on from Microsoft Office 2013 and 2010. The software is intuitive and very powerful but quite different from Microsoft Office 2003 or earlier. If you are implementing Office 365 or upgrading from earlier versions your users may be both frustrated and confused depending on their level of experience.  This course will help to remove their fears and resolve  frustrations with the new applications. In this course as well as understanding the user interface you will learn about the new features such as touch, which will greatly increase your productivity and efficiency in using Microsoft Office 2016.

This course can be delivered as a full day, optionally including Windows 10 features, or a half day introduction. We specialise on on-site training and can come to you to run our course either on your PC's or provide our own high specification equipment. If you want specific training for your staff, we are happy to customise this course to your requirements, adding or removing topics as necessary

For complete Training, any of our full-day Office courses can be delivered on Office 2016
