SUMMARY:

If you have no previous experience in Word, or you know your skills fall short, Bring Your Own Laptop have an entry level course that, in their words, takes you from ‘zero to hero’ by giving you the essential skills to making the most of Microsoft Word.

The Word 2016 Essentials training assumes no previous experience, just as long as you can work with a Windows or Mac computer. And if you’re self-taught, you will benefit from filling in all the missing bits and learning the best way to use Word.

Bring Your Own Laptop teaches Word by guiding you step by step through real world projects – opening and editing existing documents without destroying them. Formatting the page, creating tables and importing text or graphics. Templates, and how to get along with the grammar check are all included. There is also a terrific package of after course support.

COURSE TITLE: Word Essential Skills

LOCATIONS: Auckland, Hamilton, Wellington, Christchurch

SUMMARY:

If you already know how Windows works, but Microsoft Word is a mystery, then Ace Computer Training offer you ‘Word Essential Skills’ to give you the tools to create and edit short documents. There are 8 other courses as part of a suggested learning path, so this course will naturally be the ‘start from the very beginning’ offering and lasts a whole day.

The Microsoft Word training includes getting familiar with the menus, tools and screen layout of Word. You are then guided through typing a document, navigating and editing and setting up a document correctly.

Formatting and the often fraught with danger ‘envelopes and labels’ production are usefully included.

What’s not mentioned, so we assume not included, is any sort of after course care or tech support, so be sure to ask about that if you think you’ll need it. Also, consider that the Ace Computer Training ‘suggested learning path’ takes 10 days of training where many courses take 3, and a lot of 1 day courses cover a lot more ground. But if you are a complete beginner, the topics listed are certainly valuable ones.
