Full details of modules and topics covered in this one-day course


This course covers 2010, 2013, 2016 and Office 365 versions


This is a one-day training course structured into 7 modules


This course introduces Office 365 to users who have traditionally used standalone versions of Microsoft Office on their PC or laptop. As businesses turn to subscription-based software, Microsoft have catered for this by offering Office 365, which contains the favourites, such as Excel, PowerPoint and Word but includes new or updated apps to work, communicate and collaborate with colleagues, wherever you are. After this course, you will be familiar with the Office 365 interface and the applications within the plan.


Users who are accustomed to the desktop version of Microsoft Office but are now faced with using the Office 365 programme. Although it is possible to work with a desktop version of Office as part of the plan, the features of Office 365 are the online integration and new productivity tools and apps. This course will introduce Office 365 and many of its benefits.


Please note that this training must be delivered at your premises. Each delegate must have an internet connected workstation/laptop and access to an Office 365 account.
