FREE Online Revision

With our latest Microsoft Word courses, you get free online 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 online content 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 word training courses have been created, reviewed and developed to ensure up to date provision and constantly improving standards of content. Our Microsoft Word 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 Word 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.

What happens on the day

If you are coming to our centre, dress code is smart casual.   Refreshments in the form of tea/coffee will be provided for morning and afternoon breaks, but please note that we do not provide lunch.   The timetable is as follows:













Note: break times can vary according to the needs of the training, and course duration for smaller class sizes are usually shorter because fewer delegates have fewer questions !

For training at your offices, this itinerary can be varied by prior arrangement.

What you get

With every Microsoft Word training course with Activia, you get a free workbook as well as downloadable exercises, which match the course content exactly, so you can review and revise afterwards to reinforce your knowledge. With all courses, you are also given 12 months access to free online revision which will further help you to reinforce the lessons you have learned.

Every delegate on a Microsoft Word course also gets an Activia Training Attendance Certificate.
