Microsoft PowerPoint Beginner Training Course Overview

It's hard to imagine a day going by without people passing along large amounts of information. Messages are everywhere, and the number of messages we receive seems to be increasing each day. Whether via phone, email, mass media, or personal interaction, we are subjected to a constant stream of information. With so much communication to contend with, it can be difficult to grab people's attention. But, we are often called upon to do just that. So, how do you grab and maintain an audience's focus when you're asked to present important information By being clear, organized, and engaging. And, that is exactly what Microsoft PowerPoint 2016 can help you do.

Gone are the days of flip charts or drawing on a white board to illustrate your point. Today's audiences are tech savvy, accustomed to high-impact multimedia content, and stretched for time. By learning how to use the vast array of features and functionality contained within PowerPoint 2016, you will gain the ability to organize your content, enhance it with high-impact visuals, and deliver it with a punch. In this course, you will use PowerPoint 2016 to begin creating engaging, dynamic multimedia presentations.

  • Free Retake: Retake the class for free once within six months (provided the class is running with an available seat).
  • Hands-on Training: Our intermediate Excel class is hands-on and uses real-world examples throughout the training. The instructor will first explain the concept along with a example, and then you'll perform an exercise on your own.
  • Training Manual Included: Our step-by-step training manual is the perfect reference guide for during and after the class.
  • Computer Provided: We provide you with a computer with Excel so you can travel light
