Microsoft Office Applications (Advanced) Various Short Courses: MS Word, MS Excel, MS Access, MS Powerpoint
Microsoft Office and its applications are the common software packages used in business today. As a Microsoft Academy Blackburn College offers many levels of training with all of these applications to help both the employers and employees become more proficient, productive and therefore more competitive within today's dynamic industries

What will I need to join this course? For the advanced level we prefer you to have had some experience of using office type applications at an intermediate level, (not necessarily Microsoft Office), that pre-empts the course you have selected. You may have taught yourself some skills at home or work and feel quite proficient but you just want to take it that stage further where you really do know all there is to know. You want to know what we know!

What is the course duration? These short courses are for one six hour session generally over one day. We stop for lunch and also have a couple of coffee breaks, (believe me, you'll be glad of these breaks).

What is the course content? The following is a list of all of the various aspects that our highly experienced teaching staff cover throughout the short advanced level course. Also, within the advanced framework there will be elements of the theory behind the skills sets that you are going to learn. The lists are not prescriptive and can be altered to suit the candidates on the day.
Word Advanced:
Advanced Working with tables
Form design
Using formula in forms
Using advanced styles
VBA Macro Scripts
Advanced Drawing in Word
All of the tools
Excel Advanced:

Excel as a database
Pivot tables
Advanced 3D Formulas
Nested Functions
Bespoke modeling, macros, what ifs, goal seeking, etc.
Access Advanced:

Access as a restricted 'front end'
Bespoke requests
PowerPoint Advanced:

Hiding elements
Using your own Images

Theory behind public speaking
Creating successful business presentations

What will this course enable me to do? Once you are hitting the advanced levels the world will begin to change for you. You will be in a position to assist others, (if you so wish), and your prospects could alter. Your understanding of the software and computing environment will be greatly enhanced and you will be able to talk with the nerds, (if you also wish).

What will I gain at the end of this course? All of these dynamic short courses come with a Blackburn College Certificate through our Microsoft Academy; however, it doesn't have to end there! Not only will your personal skills have improved even further but you could move on to more advanced yet similar short courses from our range, or equally, take on some of our more professional and expert packages with confidence, Microsoft Office Specialists for example.
