Microsoft Word

Become a Wordsmith with our tailored online Microsoft Word course. Achieve certificated proficiency in hours in PC version 2007/10.

Nearly everyone can use Word to a basic level, so we don't want to waste your time covering basics like copy and paste, undo and redo. Instead, we show you highly practical, under-used methods to produce even better results while saving lots of time.


The syllabus uses our vast analytical experience, wide-ranging research and thorough refinement to establish which Word functions and techniques are most useful. Those that made the final cut are split across five main categories: i) Simple techniques to improve productivity; ii) Structure and automation; iii) Coping with common Word tasks; iv) Managing Word documents and their production and v) Advanced tasks in Word.


Our CPD UK certified online course covers what-you-need-to-know-in-business rather than what Word-can-do.
