Microsoft Word is one of the most widely used Office programs.

Book a Microsoft Word training to unlock the power of Word by using styles, tables and images.

Introduction to Word

This course is most suited for individuals who regularly create or edit documents and want to improve efficiency. Learn how to use styles that give your documents a consistent look and feel and further your understanding of the image tools and SmartArt graphics available. This course also tackles those “tricky” table modifications so you can modify and display your text effectively within that table format. When collaborating with other users you want to make use of the efficient reviewing tools available within Word to allow you to make suggested changes, comments and keep a track of who is reviewing a single document.

Working with Large Documents

You’re now at the stage where you’re creating large documents and would like to format those documents using some smart tools. Perhaps you want to insert a landscape page in the middle of your document, or you might like to break the document into different chapters displaying unique headers & footers. Multi-level numbering may be required but how do you restart the list further on within your document? Insert automating tools such as cross-referencing when you want to relate to a topic somewhere else within the document – if the text moves, the reference will automatically update. Or insert a Table of Contents at the beginning of the document – when headings are moved, the page numbers will automatically follow.

Creating Templates

Learn how to generate your own template so you can work with you own personal style and content efficiently. Create and manage styles so the document has a consistent look and feel. If you work with paragraphs, perhaps even pages, of text that you use over and over again, instead of copying and pasting them from a previous document, why not turn them into a reusable entry that you can pull into a new document at any time? How about utilising metadata within your document through the insertion of Document Properties – the information only needs to be entered once. Also learn to create and protect forms using Words Content Controls.
