Office 2010, 2013 and 2016 Software Training Workshops

A workshop lasts for a half, or a full, day and covers any combination of Access, Excel, PowerPoint, Project and Word to suit those attending.

You fill a workshop by booking out slots in multiples of half-an-hour to groups sharing similar interests and to individuals.

Workshops offer advantages over formal training courses:

  • Address the need for very specific training that might otherwise form a small part only of a full training course
  • Provide training that is always totally relevant for those attending
  • Allow flexible scheduling of training at points in the day that fit with your work commitments
  • Keep people away from their desks for the minimum of time, thus causing the minimum disruption to the working day
  • Yield high return on investment (ROI): low cost per head per skill acquired. In the example workshop described below, that would have worked out at about £25.00 a head.

Example of a Workshop

This is an example of how one training workshop ran (what the client wanted was help across a number of Microsoft Office applications):

9:30am—10:00am Understanding the Excel SUMIF function and its applications (two people)

10:00am—11:30am Reviewing the use of Styles in managing complex Word documents (four people)

11:30am—12:30pm Finding a solution to an intermittent Excel macro problem (one person)

1:30pm—3:30pm Understanding ways of using Access queries to identify and remove duplicated data (two people)

3:30pm—4:30pm Upgrading database to Access 2016 (five people).
