Advanced Microsoft Word

We are living in a fast moving environment and often need to produce longer and more complex documents without taking up too much time. Our Advanced Microsoft Word training course will give you the skills you need to save you time.
On this course you will use the more advanced functions of Word to create and manage larger complex documents, including a table of contents and index, you will also create a mail shot document and merge with a database source.
The course uses structured hands-on exercises so you can practice the skills you have learned throughout all the sessions.
To get the most out of this course some previous experience of using Microsoft Word (including the topics covered in our Introduction and Intermediate Microsoft Word courses) is recommended and ideally you should be comfortable with the Microsoft Windows environment
