If you’re like me, you’ve heard about Microsoft and you’ve likely heard of Microsoft Office. While there are various versions and different bundles, most often you have or you will come in contact with Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. It is often the case that one can open Microsoft Word and set of on a wild adventure of typing their favorite recipe or composing the next Diary of a Wimpy Kid. However, many users experience difficulties in using the ribbon to format their document into the envisioned masterpiece.
Microsoft Excel can be a daunting sheet of rectangles that sends many people back to Word to create a simple table. Moreover, PowerPoint can often seem powerless if the idea of adding animations and transitions seems over a person’s head.
It doesn’t have to be this way! In this course, through video-guided instruction, students will learn the ins and outs of all things Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Access. There are plenty of practice labs that can be repeated until mastery is achieved. Beyond that, this is a certification course that allows a student to take a comprehensive exam and receive a certificate announcing to prospective colleges and future employers that they’re looking at an Office wiz!
