Ace Computer Training
COURSE TITLE: Access Essential Skills
LOCATIONS: Auckland, Hamilton, Wellington, Christchurch
The Access Essential Skills course of offered by Ace Computer Training for users new to Microsoft Access, and promises to train you to use an existing Microsoft Access database and make basic use of the data.
It’s defiantly an entry level course with the training outline covering how to open and navigate existing databases, and the basic tools, menus and layout of Excel.
You’ll learn how to use ‘queries’ (they are what you think they are) and use them to in turn create reports with the information that you need organised appropriately. These are the basic skills that will make Access useful to you.
There are no references to any after course care, and the course is one of 6 day long courses if you want a complete understanding of Microsoft Access.
Ardito Corporate Training
COURSE TITLE: Access Fundamentals
Ardito Corporate Training offers the beginner in Microsoft Access a ‘fundamentals’ course designed to build a thorough understanding of the most common, and important, functions of Access, beginning with the basics of what a database is, and what you can use Access to create.
The course covers a logical range of useful topics, from building tables and forms, to using calculated queries that will refine the data contained in a report. There is also a very useful section on moving data from Excel to other applications including a ‘mail merge’ in Microsoft Word.
The prerequisites for ‘Access Fundamentals’ state “Participants should have completed the Basic Computer Skills course or, preferably have a working knowledge of Microsoft Excel.” This is perhaps not the course for a complete beginner.
There is no mention of any after course care, or any resulting qualifications.
