Microsoft Office

Course Duration - 2 to 3 hours

Benefits of Microsoft Office Upgrade training

We know it can be jarring for users when they have to re-learn how to use software after it's been upgraded with a new version. Even more so with products such as Microsoft Office, which is the staple of any business.

With each new version of Microsoft Office, we’ve seen screens, toolbars and buttons all change making it difficult for users to find what they need quickly. This makes you less efficient and causes frustration when you have deadlines and work to complete.

Our Microsoft Office Upgrade training course solves this. Being a short course (just 2 or 3 hours), it doesn’t take too much time out of your day. It’s designed to help you see what’s been changed between versions of Office and how to get back up to speed again with the latest versions of Microsoft Word, Excel, Outlook and PowerPoint. From the new Office Ribbon bar, to the new file formats and how to save them for older versions of Microsoft software.

Because we can train up to 8 people per session, with the two hour option you can run 3 sessions in a day involving 24 people.
