In today’s high-tech World it’s more important than ever to have relevant and current IT skills. Microsoft Office dominates business and commerce and it is essential to be fully up to speed with the latest versions of Excel, Outlook and Word. Statistically the majority of users are self taught with most software and Microsoft Office is no exception. Whilst this method of learning works for many, there is a fundamental issue in so far as that ‘we don’t know what we don’t know’. This truism leads to many people having significant gaps in their knowledge of Excel and Word, often without them realising. This is where a skills based course can be useful.

Most software training providers offer Microsoft training at various levels to suit current skills levels and they can often be completed in a single day. This is a very efficient and cost-effective way to gain these vital skills. Leading UK training providers QA and Paul Brown Training both offer 1 day classroom based Microsoft courses. Prices vary but expect to pay £300+ for a good provider.
