Introduction to Microsoft Word

We tend to use Word as a processing program to create and store many of our business and personal documents. If you are a novice to this software, our Introduction to Microsoft Word training course will easily show you how to produce basic documents.
On this course you will become familiar with the functions that Microsoft Word has to offer, create and format a document, use and set up page margins, copy, move and insert text, format paragraphs, create a basic table and then effectively print your work.
The course uses structured hands-on exercises so you can practice the skills you have learned throughout all the sessions. This course is the ideal stepping stone for our Intermediate Microsoft Word course.
To get the most out of this course no previous experience of using a word processing program is required but ideally you should be comfortable with the Microsoft Windows environment.
