Microsoft Access is one of the more advanced programmes in the Microsoft Office suite, and is used to build powerful databases with relatively little effort. The aoftware is extremely versatile, and uses can range from linking simple data lists to fully functional accounts and invoicing systems.

But of all the Microsoft Office applications, Access needs to be set up and used in the correct way. It is possible to teach yourself up to a point, but once an application starts to be used, the effects of not following best practice can have serious consequences. By attending an Activia training course, delegates will learn the correct way to set up, run and develop database applications, with no fear of problems later on.

About Microsoft Access

Access is a Relational Database Management System (or RDBMS for short). As you may know, all databases store information -- but Access is a relational system, in that it links together data stored in separate lists, or tables. As an example, one table could contain a list of customers while another might show orders placed. A connection would be made via an account number or ID appearing in both tables, thus enabling the application to recognise and work with the shared relationship.

Our Approach

Activia courses are fully interactive, and tailored workbooks enable delegates to fully engage with the course material, and use the software to develop their skills, all under the tuition of an experienced and helpful trainer. Our fees are competitive too and can easily be accommodated into your training budget.
