General Information

All Activia introduction to visio training courses have been created, reviewed and developed to ensure up to date provision and constantly improving standards of content. Our Microsoft Visio 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 Visio courses is 6 delegates, which ensures that attendees get adequate time for personal attention from the instructor. At some of our centres, the maximum class size is 4 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.
