About Microsoft PowerPoint

PowerPoint is predominantly a tool for business users to present data to audiences within commercial environments.  It allows presenters to reveal data using slides that can contain a range of different media, including text, images and videos. Animations can also be used to enliven the broadcast, which is typically transmitted through the use of a digital projector. The presentation can be set up to run manually or automatically.

Our Approach

Our courses all focus on interactivity, which maximises learning and therefore effectiveness back at work.  And with our highly competitive pricing structure, you will get the best return on your training budget.

More about training with Activia

With Activia, you can check your skill level (see the button above on the right) which ensures you book on the correct course.   This facility is also invaluable when putting together training programmes or bespoke courses for numbers of delegates.

You can also build your own Microsoft Powerpoint course (click the button above on the right) to suit your own or your company project requirements, incorporating the modules which cover the subjects you want to learn.

Our small class sizes mean that classes are often full, so it's usually best to book as soon as you can.   So don't be disappointed by leaving it too late!

If you see classes at higher prices set to run over the next few days, these are empty classes and if you book, you may be the only delegate attending.
