Course Outline

This course provides a solid introduction to using this powerful program and provides the student with the skills to begin creating truly dynamic presentations.  The objective is to supply the student with an understanding of presentation basics, including all aspects of working with text and graphical charts.

The Introductory course allows the user to create simple though effective presentations right away.  However, to really “jazz up” presentations and utilize the high level of customization allowed by PowerPoint, most students go on to the Advanced course.

This course is classroom style instruction: Instructor-led, hands-on training.
