In this Microsoft Office essential skills course I share with you the real-life skills people need to get the best from the software in the workplace, gathered over many years as a Microsoft Certified Trainer. By taking this course you will be able to:

  • Confidently use the core Microsoft Office programs in the workplace
  • Learn the skills employers expect you to have in Word, Outlook, Excel and PowerPoint
  • Apply best practices to your work
  • Achieve confidence and job satisfaction through practice

Who should take this course?

  • You should take this course if you use Microsoft Office at work but have never been trained
  • Anyone who wants to become more confident, achieve progression at work or find a new job
  • Anyone who wants to update their skills if returning to work after a career break

Who should not?

  • This course is not intended as a comprehensive guide to Microsoft Office, it is intended to teach the essential skills employers look for
  • It does not cover advanced topics but does cover all you need to get started plus lots of cool shortcuts to make your day fly by

What will students need to know or do before starting this course?

  • This course requires no previous knowledge, but assumes that students will have access to a PC and a copy of Office 2010 or later.
  • Most of the principles can also be applied to Office 2007 and to Office 2013, but as the 2010 version is the most commonly used, this is the version I have chosen for the tutorials.
  • When appropriate, the actual files used in the tutorial are provided for practice and I encourage students to download them and follow along.
  • You will learn faster and be more confident when you try it yourself!
You can view and review the lecture materials indefinitely, like an on-demand channel.
Definitely! If you have an internet connection, courses on Udemy are available on any device at any time. If you don't have an internet connection, some instructors also let their students download course lectures. That's up to the instructor though, so make sure you get on their good side!
