Publisher Course Outline

Our Publisher training course will teach you all you need to create attractive publications for the workplace.  The course starts off by taking you through how to work with text in a publication including how to link text boxes and work with styles.  We then look at working with tables and images:  there are tons of features that apply to both.

The course then takes you through how to work with publication pages including how to create a two page spread and use page masters.  If relevant we can then look at how to use mail merge and the commercial printing tools.
