Advanced Word Training - 1 Day Course

Our Advanced Word course is aimed at experienced Microsoft Word users who need to top up their skills.  This course offers a comprehensive coverage of the more advanced aspects of the software.  We start off by looking at using styles as a means of formatting and providing structure for your documents. Once styles have been applied we will show you how to create a table of contents and apply outline numbering and then use the outlines tools to easily restructure your content. We will the show you how to apply different page level formats to different parts of your document by breaking the document up into different sections - you will also be able to apply different headers and footers to those different sections. Tracked changes, forms and tables are also covered - but remember as with all our courses - they can be tailored. This means you can pick and choose the content that is most relevant to the way your business uses Microsoft Word.
