Microsoft Outlook - OnlineDownload Course Outline

These are the basic outlines of our Microsoft Outlook Online sessions.

Duration: 2 hours for each session

You can get more detail on these courses by viewing or downloading the PDF course outline using the link on the right.

Using the latest online technology, these sessions are brought direct to your PC or laptop in real time where you'll have a live instructor delivering an interactive experience.  All you need is a broadband connection and ideally a headset.  Please note that because you'll be using our "Virtual PC's", you don't need Outlook loaded onto your computer or laptop.

These are individual sessions and you can register for one or both of them.  If you want to register for both sessions, we recommend that you take them in their numbered order.
