Microsoft Word  - Level 1Download Course Outline

This is the outline of our Microsoft Word Level 1 course. Duration: 1 day

Microsoft Word has the power to lay out your documents in smart and professional ways but because you’re a basic user you’re struggling to achieve this.  This course will give you the skills to use Word’s basic features and so become more competent and efficient at formatting, setting out and printing documents.  Because you’ll also be learning many “transferable” computer skills, this course will greatly increase your confidence in using computers generally. By completing structured exercises, using documents relevant to your work, this course will show you how easy it is to use Word and get the skills to become more efficient and productive in your work. It also prepares you for moving on to the Microsoft Word Level 2 Course.

This is a basic level course suitable for computer beginners or those who lack confidence in using computers. You don’t need any previous experience of using word processors.

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're happy to customise this course to your requirements, adding or removing topics as necessary.
