FREE E-learning Revision

With our latest Microsoft Powerpoint courses, you get free e-learning revision for a full 12 months after your class so you can reinforce the knowledge you have gained.

Access is simple: go to and log in using your email address.   This will give you free access to our e-learning revision modules.

Note: These have been developed and written exclusively by Activia to maximise effectiveness, by matching the e-learning exactly to what you cover in class.   We hope you have fun, on the day of the course and with honing your knowledge afterwards!

General Information

All Activia advanced powerpoint 2013 courses have been created, reviewed and developed to ensure up to date provision and constantly improving standards of content. Our Microsoft Powerpoint training is interactive and classroom-based which maximises learning through the ability to ask questions and discuss specific issues.

Class Sizes

Maximum class size for Microsoft Powerpoint courses is 8 delegates, which ensures that attendees get adequate time for personal attention from the instructor. At some of our centres, the maximum class size is 6 delegates.

Note that we never cancel our scheduled classes -- even if there are only one or two delegates -- so once you have booked, your place is assured.

For training at your offices, we can deliver classes of up to 10 delegates, though with bigger class sizes you must understand that there is less time for questions from delegates, and this may affect the quality of their experience.
