All Activia introduction to 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.
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.
