Microsoft Word training – advanced skills



Microsoft Office Word has come a long way since its debut in the early 80s. Yet so many of our students had rarely explored its wealth of features and functions before working with us. Choose from half- or a full- days training designed specifically to suit the requirements of your business and the skill levels of your team.

Training objectives

By the end of the course you will be able to create a template to automate your work. The template will include styles, table of contents, an index, and word fields. You will also be able to create bookmarks and hyperlinks to other documents.

In particular, you will be able to:
  • Improve the layout of your text and page
  • Use, create & amend standard automated documents, for example memos, faxes, forms etc
  • Use & create consistent headings throughout long documents
  • Create a list of the contents of the document with page numbers
  • Move very quickly around long documents
  • Use a particular view of your document that lets you choose to work with parts of the document (for example, see the headings only)
  • Track any amendments that happen in a document
  • Audience

    Anyone who has used Word before to create and alter text and page layout.


    The training is very practical and objective that will have been prepared in advance to suit the skill levels and role of each individual within the class. The focus is on improving on what you already know but showing you more efficient ways of working to make you more productive. Participants are openly encouraged to discuss real-life examples from their own situations where they may be struggling with their IT applications so that they leave with personalised resolutions.

    Each element of the course includes:
    • High-quality training presentation
    • Group exercises and team activities
    • High degree of participation and interaction
