Why You Should Take This Class
Microsoft Word can automate a lot of the mechanics of document creation if you know how to use it correctly. Trial and error might leave you manually making changes the program could have done for you.
This class is designed to give students a firm understanding Microsoft Word fundamentals and how to set up documents to take full advantage of Word’s powerful formatting and editing tools. This training not only shows you how to use Microsoft Word, it also explains why things are done a certain way so you can figure things out for yourself when you are on your own.
The goal of the class is to help you use Word to get your work done quickly and efficiently.
