Word Tips, Tricks and Timesavers Course Outline
*** WARNING: High Volume Class, Sign Up Early ***
Word is our most popular series classes. A green flag beside a date on the right means that a session has met the minimum enrollment levels and is running. However, it is common for dates for this course to fill several weeks in advance. Even if a date has a green flag, you might not be able to get into that session if it is full. To avoid disappointment, it is best to register for this class at least three weeks in advance.
This one-day class offers tips, tricks and timesavers that will help you get the most from Word. It is an easy, quick-paced class that will touch on most of the popular Word features and how to access them efficiently. This is a great "refresher" course for individuals with prior Word experience who want to quickly update their skills and learn the latest tips, tricks and timesavers!
Special Note to New Hampshire Residents
This course has not yet been approved by the State's Department of Education. Please contact us to get an update as to when the class should be available in New Hampshire.
While this class is being taught using the 2016 version of the Word software, almost all topics (except for a few new 2016-only items) will be applicable to users of Word 2013. The instructor will be able to identify and discuss any other minor differences between the versions.
You already know Word and have been working with it regularly. Some of your skills are self-taught and you might have taken formal training. Individuals who have taken one or more Word Core Skills classes will be excellent candidates for this class.
Who Should NOT Take This Class
If you are a novice Word user, this class is not for you. It is best to have some practical Word work experience before taking this class. Also, if you have taken all three of our Word Introduction, Intermediate, and Advanced classes, there will be a significant overlap in topics.
This class is not for beginning Word users. The typical candidate for this class will be either self-taught or will have had some formal training in Word. This class can be taken after the Word Introduction.
